Melanie Cannizzo is a recent fashion design graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

Her interest in fashion started when she was young, always sketching garments and dreaming of the day that she would be able to make them a reality. Fascinated by the beautiful laces and intricate details, she always knew she wanted to specialize in intimate apparel. It was as if these garments drifted away from everyday fashion trends and entered an entirely different realm of fantasy.

Melanie’s designs always include historical aspects. She has branded her line, Melanie Grace Couture, with the logo of a Victorian cameo. A symbol she believes represents the power in femininity- perfect for the world of intimates. Almost costume-like, the limits in intimate apparel seemed endless – an exciting world Melanie could not wait to be a part of. It is her goal to enter this vast, exciting field and share her ideas of creativity and positivity with the world.
