Southern Fashion Inspiration from a Texas Style Maven and HBCU Alum

Melissa is not new to the fashion industry. When she became of age, the very essence of her persona was formed through an endless exposure to fashion. By the time Melissa was a teenager, she needed to be immersed in fashion as much as she needed the blood that flowed through her veins. Through the years since then, she has been formally trained in the arts of fashion and design, which have cultivated her passion for her own label. Melissa Jenise tastefully executes her creativity and enthusiasm for design.
Melissa’s formal fashion training began when she attended Prairie View A&M University and later earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a focus in Fashion Design and Marketing. She was president of the Fashion Club and was voted Most Promising Designer and Most Innovative Up and Coming Designer. During these college years, Melissa and a friend started a clothing line that had the campus of Prairie View buzzing. The label presented opened the doors for fashion shows both on campus and throughout the city of Houston. Upon graduation Melissa joined the Houston Chapter of Fashion Group International.
Melissa also believes in philanthropy work. Melissa does a yearly fashion show with Reconstruction of a Survivor Breast Cancer Organization. She also has a passion for speaking to young girls about today’s issue, and what not to wear. Melissa is also a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
You may have seen her work on celebrities such as LeToya Luckett, Nicole Ari Parker, and the Formal International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson.
