IATCPJ: A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO FASHION AND A PRODUCER OF STYLE WHICH INTERSECT AND DIFFER FROM MAINSTREAM FASHION CONSIDERATIONS.

 
 

It all started when…

Melissa was living in Highland Park, IL.  She became bored with the cookie cutter midwestern style of fashion.  Melissa knew that she was always different from the Abercombie cult around her.  She was destined to find style and she was relentless in her search for it.  Melissa asked her mom to take her to various thrift stores in the inner city of Chicago and this was when her love for vintage fashion was born.  As Melissa walked the aisles of the Salvation Army, Good Will and  thrift stores alike; she also introduced her self to   boutiques that housed  independent designers.  She was fascinated by all the different textiles,   drawn to the  various silhouettes,   mesmerized by the utter  beauty, creativity and craftsmanship that went into each garment.  What impressed Melissa the  most, was the exclusivity of each piece.    Melissa was able to transport herself through time as she tried on each vintage or unique find.  Melissa then  started to  mix  both modern and vintage clothing, and that is the story of how her style was born.
