Bespoke Only is a multidisciplinary design firm specializing in creating events and spaces with a modern approach to understated luxury. The studio is the brainchild of founder and creative director Melissa Lee, a designer with a unique eye to style, balance and harmony.
With a background in luxury goods and fashion, we apply the same meticulous standards to ensure that every project is a seamless success. The Bespoke Only aesthetic is at once refined and timeless, often drawing inspirations from arts in various forms and natural elements that lend an organic feel to the atmosphere. Taking on only a selected number of projects each year, our focus at Bespoke Only is to create a true bespoke experience with every client.
Melissa Lee, Founder & Creative Director
Melissa founded Bespoke Only with a desire to pursue more intimate and unconstrained design after extensive experience in the corporate events and fashion world. With a M.F.A. from Parsons School of Design, Melissa has an affinity for elevating architectural elements and stylishly integrates her modernist aesthetic with a quiet yet strong sensibility. Materials and textures, floral, and styling outdoor spaces are some of Melissa's favorite details.
