Shannon Melick, born and raised in Herndon, Virginia, has always been drawing. What does she draw you ask? Clothes of course! Inseparable from pen and paper, she developed an interest in bringing her creations to life. She is now a Senior fashion design student at Pratt institute in Brooklyn, NY, where she is working on her senior collection.
Throughout the years, Shannon’s many passions have worked to shape her voice as a designer. A love of figure skating, historical costume, elaborate embellishment, and her faith in Jesus Christ are Shannon’s main sources of inspiration for her senior collection titled, “Fashion and Flora of Women in the Word.” In her collection, Shannon strives to bring attention to the outstanding strength, grace and courage of the women in the Bible while using the language of flowers to articulate their individual traits and stories.
