Melissa Dewgard: Founder & Lead Merchandise Designer
Melissa is a born & raised Brooklyn girl.
Spending most of her childhood and early adulthood growing up in Bed-Stuy & Crown Heights, Melissa has been surrounded by culture, style and innovation for as long as she could remember.
Melissa graduated from KBCC in Brooklyn, NY with an A.A.S. in Retail Merchandising with a concentration in Fashion Merchandising in 2010 and has since earned certifications in Women's Entrepreneurship and Tourism & Hospitality Management.
