Written by Leshelle Smith - Minority Report TV Show
DaVonna May, jewelry stylist and designer, is an entrepreneur with a serious eye for accessories!
I stumbled across the BellaDonna PrimaDonna Instagram page over a year ago and noticed immediately that DaVonna uses her jewelry as art – her pieces have been featured by various photographers, models, art galleries, creative directors, music videos, commercials, and on a few celebrities.
DaVonna May is someone I wish I would have met when I was living in Manhattan, attending Parson's School of Design. Sensing the industry was shallow, DaVonna was a genuine breath of fresh air!
She is rooted. She is grounded. She is a woman of faith. DaVonna May is couture plus character!
During this interview, DaVonna shared some of her best fashion advice and gave me a sneak peek into what it's like to be a stylist.
MRTV: Tell me a little about yourself and your career so far?
DM, BDPD: I am DaVonna May, Designer & Stylist of BellaDonnaPrimaDonna – Accessory House. “Where Luxury Meets Affordability and Every Day is EXTRAORDINARY!”
I created my business in 2010 to offer luxurious and affordable jewelry to all women – especially to those who craved one of a kind pieces!
We are inspired by our clients’ diverse backgrounds and unique stories. They each represent different cultures and various experiences. They share one thing in common – they are all living extraordinary lives wearing our jewelry!
There is no stopping the woman that wears our jewelry and we are honored to be a part of these amazing journeys!
MRTV: How do you choose what looks work for each individual client?
DM, BDPD: I choose pieces that excite the imagination and seduce the senses. Jewelry that appeals to your alter ego of luxury and fantasy. My clients love our accessories because we are versatile.
We range from luxury to avant-garde to corporate professional to casual! We have something for everyone.
We also offer personal shopping services, where we have private consultations with our clients to choose exclusive pieces, not found on our website. We love giving one on one attention to ensure our ladies have a piece they will cherish forever!
MRTV: What trends are you loving right now?
DM, BDPD: I am so loving the Vintage Glamour look. My mother raised us on movies like “Gone with the Wind” and I fell in love with the grace, the luxury - the timeless elegance.
It’s not a trend, it’s a way of life! It’s how I envision my brand! My best selling collections are pearls with large dripping rhinestones and a pair of our fierce cat-eye sunglasses! Don’t forget the Red-Lippie!
MRTV: What’s the best style advice you’ve received?
DM, BDPD: BE YOURSELF! The world craves individuality. You were created wonderfully and with a vision. Live your life to discover and define who you are, then be that fearlessly, and unapologetically! YOU ARE AMAZING! There is nothing more stylish than YOU!
MRTV: What do you think is the most essential item in every woman’s wardrobe?
DM, BDPD: Confidence, Positive Energy, a Genuine Smile and a few Pieces of Jewelry from our Collection, of course! With these essentials, you will change the world!
