About the Founder
Melissa Dewgard 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.
When Melissa isn’t coming up with new merch collections, she’s traveling and spending time with her husband and their two children.
About Our Products
All of the apparel is made by me, in my in-home studio here in Manassas, VA. I offer heat pressed t-shirts, sweatshirts & hoodies using vinyl, as well as dye-sublimation garments.
Travel bags, handbags & wallets are all designed by me and then sent to an overseas warehouse for production.
Passports & luggage tags are also designed by me and outsourced to a local printer.
