Singer/songwriter Melanie Fiona took fashion e-zine The Coveteur to one of her favorite Brooklyn restaurants, Madiba, for a chat about her career and personal style.
The Canadian musician rocked her now go-to shade of red lipstick and black wide-brimmed hat with funky accessories, giving us a taste of her style revolution:
On career highlights:
Touring with Kanye West and then touring with Alicia Keys, two of my FAVORITE artists. I also got to be a part of the new ‘We Are The World’ tribute for Haiti, which was so surreal. I was singing chorus lines with Barbara Streisand, being directed by Quincy Jones!
On what’s next:
I’m about to put a mini bundle of music called ‘Free Love’. I have a song out right now off that compilation called ‘Cold Piece’. In July, I was approached by Nike to be a part of their Women’s Marathon in San Francisco, this October. I was completely honored. It’s a great way for me to challenge myself in such a positive way, for such a important reason. I will be running for friend of mine who is battling cancer right now.
On her style essentials:
I would describe my style as the “Bohemian Tomboy”. If it flows, has fringe, or I can wear sneakers with it, I’m happy. I can’t live without my black leather Grey Ant sunglasses, favourite baggy G-star jeans, or my Nike Sky-Hi Dunks. Oh! and my Christian Louboutin Daffodile booties.
