Melissa #SPEEDSPIRIT Mentorship - Mirror Collection Launch

We hosted an evening of speed mentorship to celebrate the launch of the Melissa Mirror collection at the Galeria Melissa London on 15th August. As part of our ongoing community partnership with Melissa shoes which supports young creatives in London, Protein produced a speed dating style mentorship event where guests could gain insights from industry experts in beauty, fashion, tech and art.

Fashion Mentor: Rhiannon Barry / @rhiannon_isabel
Rhiannon is a stylist and co-founder of Wavey Garms - starting out as a facebook group where friends could share their love of fashion through buying and selling their clothes. Wavey Garms has become a community of fashion collectors.
Rhiannon has blossomed her hobby into a full-time career, making her an inspiration to her community and a voice of her generation.

Makeup Mentor: Salwa Rahman / @urgalsal_
Salwa Rahman is a makeup enthusiast and a self-love consultant. Featured on Dazed Beauty, her makeup style is playful, unexpected and truly delightful to look at.

Tech Mentor: Kesang Ball / @kesang.trippin
Kesang is a co-founder of travel platform and app, Trippin. Starting as a facebook group where friends could share recommendations from their trips abroad, the platform has become a community of young creatives bonded by their love of travel.

Art Mentor: Kelly Anna / @kellyannalondon
Kelly Anna is a London based freelance artist and print designer with names like Beyonce and Cara Delevingne been wearing her distinctive prints. Her work stands out thanks to its empowering messages — implicit in style, and explicit in the recognisably witty scrawlings. Her work has been championed by the likes of It’s Nice that, Risposte Magazine, Refinery29, Konbini, KK outlet and so many more.

Our aim was to create a inclusive event that was open to the public and gave young creatives the unique opportunity to ask the experts any questions that they had on their chosen field. The Galeria became the setting for the event with a live DJ set by Amal Omari / @amalomariwashington and drinks provided by Ace & Freaks / @aceandfreak & Ugly Drinks / @uglydrinks_uk
