About Melanie Joyce
Melanie Joyce: "I'm passionate about style, detail, color, texture and helping my customers and clients elevate their style and feel amazing in my pieces. I'm inspired by many things...and from my inspiration sparks designs that are bold, unique, with a level of simplicity. I love to mix textures, prints and patterns in a subtle way. Draping is typically my method to clothing design as seeing how the fabric lays on the body really breathes life into my designs. When I design footwear, I imagine how the shoe will sit on the foot. The confidence a person will have when wearing a great shoe. I take an architectural approach often when I design mixed with the freedom of movement. This approach lends itself to creating in a way that is authentic to my self expression...my personality. I infuse myself in each and every design. They are extensions of me."
Melanie Joyce earned her Master of Fine Art in Fashion Design in 2016 from the Academy of Art University out of San Francisco and started her namesake brand that same year. She has taught as fashion design professor and has a background in styling, as well as retail and merchandising.
