Melissa Johnson

Melissa is a daydreamer, a creative, and a visual artist. In March 2015, she graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia with a BS in Fashion Design.  There, her focus was contemporary women’s RTW, with a passion for avant garde, Japanese culture, Baroque and leather. 

Melissa designs and creates custom garments for every Modern Misfits pop-up shop.  From there she works with the Misfits to curate shows, do photoshoots, create lookbooks, and promote on social media.

Alongside from her own designs, Melissa is an Assistant Designer for Jessica Simpson’s clothing brand.  She also creates custom garments for personal clientele.  

You can view Melissa's personal portfolio full of custom sewn garments here.

Be sure to check out her designs at our latest pop-up shop, or contact her for any custom requests.

Fashion design to me is an extension of myself. It’s my medium of art and it’s my way to express my view of the world.
