Who We Are
Veronica Lupampa started selling elegant African wear in Boston over a decade ago.
With the help of her sisters— Rebecca, Annie, Elizabeth, Margaret, and Rose— her business expanded from Boston to cities across the United States.
As demand grew, so did her passion to build a family-oriented business emphasizing authentic fabrics and unique designs.
Melmikay’s, named after Veronica’s children, is a bridge between worlds, fusing together traditional African prints with a contemporary aesthetic.
When you wear Melmikay’s, you not only wear the best in African wear, you wear a family’s legacy.
What we believe:
Our fabrics are sewn, dyed, and made on African soil.
2. Family First
Not only is Melmikay’s a family business, but the tailors and seamstresses we work with are also family-run businesses.
3. Everybody deserves beauty.
Whether you are a size 0 or 27, trust us with your body and together we will create a statement.
4. Unique is timeless
Our designs are dynamic and made to fit perfectly.
