Brought To You By Melee the Show
Jewelry designers Rebecca Overmann and Lauren Wolf are bringing Melee the Show, their boutique tradeshow, to Tucson, AZ from January 31 - February 2, 2022. Melee the Show is popular for its curated, upscale selection of designers from around the world and for beautiful, intimate venues. Their flagship show then returns to New York City from February 7- 9, 2022.
“For us, and our designers, it lines up well for designers who are shopping the event and for buyers who are not interested in making the trek to New York City during the winter.”
— Lauren Wolf
“We really want it to be an intimate setting where buyers can mingle and do business and enjoy their days with us. Once you get to a certain size, it doesn’t have that same feeling.”
— Rebecca Overmann
“When you look at all of these designers, everyone complements each other but stands on their own as far as their design aesthetic. That’s the running theme that ties everything together.”
— Lauren Wolf
