Fair production, short transport routes and eco-sustainability, an integral part of the ME&MAY philosophy

Melissa Knorr and Mathilde Feuillet got to know each other at a part-time job during their studies. Mathilde studied at Esmod in Munich. Melissa is a trained tailor and acquired her skills in dressmaking at the Meisterschule für Mode. Out of this coincidence, their label was born, and was a huge success from the start! The brand is named after the first letters of their names. Me & May. The duo works out of a studio in Munich, where they develop the shapes of their beautiful and colourful clothes, and oversee their manufacturing in Europe.
