KAIA Consulting founder, white woman smiling at camera


Hi! I'm Melissa, and my mission is to provide support to women entrepreneurs as they launch their dream businesses, especially those in the fashion industry. I have a comprehensive background in design, operations, and creative direction, and I am here to help with everything encompassing organizational setup, go-to-market strategies, business development, design, sourcing, branding - you name it!

Launching a new business is hard, but it doesn't have to be overwhelming. I believe that when women support each other and work together, everyone wins. I will help you build a strong foundation to create a sustainable, scalable business.
