"Since I moved to Paris at the beginning of this year, romaticism took over me and my thoughts ... so I decided to create a line both feminine and modern ... beautiful shoes covered with crystals that will illuminate the steps of melissa's customers" - J MASKREY.
After the success of the melissa 'bejewelled' line by J Maskrey launched in 2003, J Maskrey once again graces melissa with her glamorous talent with the launch of the Night Sky line. The styles that have received her magical touch are Ultragirl, Esmeralda, Vinyl, Joy and Lady Dragon. The name for the new line, Night Sky, came to J Maskrey on one of her trips whilst observing the beauty and lights of the Sky from her aeroplane window.
J Maskrey commenced her career as a make-up artist. She then decided to follow her creative ideas and began to develop jewellery to be worn directly on the skin - thus the begining of 'skin jewellery', her registered trademark. Clients of her unique and dazzling form of body art have included: Kate Moss, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Kate Winslet, Janet Jackson, Courtney Love, Yoko Ono, Cate Blanchett and Gwen Steffani. J Maskrey has collaborated with several top fashion brands as a result of developing her Skin Jewellery technique. These have included Ungaro Couture, Estee Lauder, Givenchy Parfum, Kenzo, Sonia Rykiel Judith Lieber, Alexander McQueen, Red Bull, Hugo Boss, SK II and many more.
In 2000 J Maskrey branched into clothing and debuted at London Fashion Week in 2001. Nowadays she lives in Paris concentrating on her ready-to-wear collections and working closely with melissa and various other collaborators.
