A career in fashion show production led Andre to form her event planning and design firm, Melissa Andre Events, 10 years ago. With offices in Toronto, Los Angeles, and New York, Andre’s company designs as many as 150 events a year around the globe, including parties for clients such as Drake, the Weeknd, and DJ Khaled. Andre also has a floral gifting service, Melissa Andre Blooms.

On a Parisienne-theme bat mitzvah (pictured, in slide show): “We transformed a film studio into the most beautiful wonderland we’d ever created and even spent months creating the oversize pastel hot-air balloons to float over the dining tables.”
