Ingwa; Melero is crafted by the design team of Nike Ingwa Clausing and Tina Hernaiz Melero. Nike and Tinas love of design began as childhood friends in a small town in Germany. Inspired by their mothers handcrafting books from the 70s, they began making their own clothes at an early age. Soon, their hobby became obsession and they spent all of their free time designing outfits for themselves and their friends. After studies in fashion, the draw of the New York fashion scene soon took hold of both Nike and Tina, leading them to move to NYC permanently in 2001, where they founded Ingwa; Melero. Ingwa; Meleros incorporation of traditional handcrafting techniques, with fitted feminine silhouettes, continues to capture attention of the New York fashion scene, as well as the rest of the nation. Ingwa; Melero can currently be found at Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman and numerous specialty boutiques in New York, Los Angeles and around the country.
