My name is Melissa. I am a fashion designer that has recently graduated from Fashion Design school. I served eight years in the U.S. Army and I am currently working on the completeion of my second degree- in business. I look forward to the day I begin my own business, so that my dreams can finally come true. :) I am also doing some modeling as well. I do not shoot nudes or implied nudes. If there is a concept that a photographer has in mind for me - please run by the exact details of it so that it can be clear of confusion when it comes time to shoot. I love and thrive off creativity- I obsess over uniqueness and going "outside-the-box" when it comes to themes and ideas. Some examples of creativity that inspire me are by: Alexander Mcqueen, Vivian Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. I enjoy to work / network with other designers, models and artists of all kinds. I also have a passion for styling as well as consulting fashion. THE POSSIBLITIES ARE ENDLESS! Don't ever let anyone tell you "it's already been done"- such a terrible gesture. Ladies and Gentlemen- your art is like your fingerprints, unique, one of a kind and there has never been or ever will be another artist like yourself-so do not ever listen to that nonsense! I hope to grow in the fashion industry through more experiences with fashion shows, photo-shoots and other events. I wish everyone luck on Model Mayhem and I look forward to working with you!
