Lana Volkov’s shoe designs are in stock across Melbourne’s iconic fashion precinct, Chapel Street, South Yarra and Melbourne’s new Docklands Harbour Town shopping precinct, with more stores and an on-line boutique in the works for 2014.
“The real designing and commitment to footwear set in around the time I finished high school, where I purposefully enrolled into University to study Industrial Design. I wanted to create something crazy, something spectacular, and I felt like learning more about the fundamentals of the design industry, not just the fashion, materials, fabric, ergonomics. Now I hand make these shoes, unreplicable as they are, by hand”.
Lana Volkov is committed to a strong and seamless design process, working with manufacturers across the globe. She is often on the road between her home in Melbourne and her manufacturers overseas. Keeping quality standards high and managing her manufacturing and production process to ensure ethical considerations are maintained and her product is made to benefit communities the world over.

Lana is creating new and exciting ranges each season, as well as ensuring she stays up close and personal by hand-making custom shoes fit to order for ready-to-wear fashion and even bridal wear. “I was bursting with creativity with so many ideas and designs springing to mind and it was necessary to share these beautiful creations with the world. So I flew overseas for and studied the fashion, textiles and manufacturing industry for five months and came back to find that something is missing in fashion, in footwear especially. Something zesty, something bold, yet personal. ”
Lana’s love with music, movement and dance is reflected in her inspirational clothing and footwear designs; colour, confidence, love. Her current collection is an expression of the deepest reflections of her heart. “I was often feeling a creative burst and put a story of love behind my clothing”. Incorporating soft and colourful patent leather, her designs include wedges, sandals, platforms and heels. The Lana Volkov women’swear range includes functional, fun and flirty day-dresses, seducing evening dresses and swimwear. Bored of commonplace neutral shades of black, brown and beige Lana’s inspiration comes from a deeper urge to inject some ‘colour, excitement and creativity’ into the Melbourne fashion scene.

Lana Volkov channels the everyday woman, breathing life in colour into the everyday greys seen gracing the city streets of Melbourne CBD, Australia.

I am 15 years old. I love singing, dancing and acting therefore I did CPCA (Children's Performing Company of Australia). I did a whole range of dancing in the past at Dynamite Dance Centre such as, ballet, hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, tap and acro circus. Early this year I did a musical, Seussical the Musical, and toured in Melbourne and Adelaide. April this year, I took up a modelling course with Tanya Powell and learnt the basics of how to do makeup, hair, pose for photoshoots, walk the catwalk, and also how to look after ourselves. I did a modelling competition, Instagram selfie competition, a few months back and came first out of Australia and was given a free year training to become a model. And recently I passed an interview to compete in Top Model Worldwide and now one of the finalists. The competition is going to be held in London, Hilton Hotels from the 31st of March - 5th of April.

Roll up, roll up! Introducing Australian pop singer Mel Jade.
Singing has been Mel Jade's number one love from a very early age. “I actually can't remember a time when I wasn't singing.” she says, “When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up at first I answered Belle from 'Beauty and the Beast', but when I realised that becoming a fictional cartoon character wasn't really a viable career option, I set my sights on singing instead.”
Mel Jade wrote her first song in the bathtub at the age of three called 'I never thought a seahorse could drown'. “It was a very tragic song” she laughs, but Mel Jade's love of singing and songwriting didn't stop there.
Mel Jade stepped onto the scene with her track 'Aliens' which was remixed and released by the Pretty Boys of Saint Tropez in Europe. The remix hit the charts after top DJ Armin Van Buuren picked it up and played it on his radio segment in Holland.
Mel Jade then embarked on an independent solo project and released her debut album 'Alive', a poetic yet catchy underground pop record. “It was both scary and exciting to start this project completely on my own. But the songs are all about taking chances, pushing boundaries and doing exactly what you want to do, so that's what I did!”
Excitingly, the home made video Mel Jade created for her song 'We Could Make a Movie' hit over a million views on YouTube in a matter of weeks. Fashion TV aired behind the scenes footage from her 'Not That Serious' music video and she toured the UK promoting 'Alive'.
Mel Jade describes her style as pop infused with a million other influences as she listens to everything from rock to blues to classical to dirrty electro.
“I just mash everything I like together” Mel Jade says, and this cocktail of influences which she has fused and injected with her own poetic lyrics that speak of risk, fantasy, feeling alive and retro romance means the singer has emerged with her own brand of pop.
Though she's dripping with candy, Mel Jade also has something very raw and real about her. She is both recklessly fun and thoughtfully poetic, girl-next-door and glamorous, naughty and sweet, untouchable and approachable (she always replies to her followers on Facebook and Twitter).
“I bought a huge bag of glitter off eBay, so I'm pretty much prepared for anything now.”
So there you are, she's armed herself with songs and sparkles, and wants YOU on her team.
