Montreal-based designer Mélissa Nepton specializes in modern, ready-to-wear couture that targets the urban career woman. Hers is a vision that reflects both her personality and view of fashion, “For me, fashion is a vigorous expression that impacts women’s lives in a positive way. And in return, women bring to fashion a sense of sensuality, fluidity and femininity. It’s a communication rooted in comfort, practicality and confidence,” says Nepton.
Nepton completed her prep school years at the renowned fashion program at Marie-Victorin College before entering Montreal’s L’École supérieure de mode. Nepton’s talent was already noticed and attracted her teachers support, encouraging her to pursue studies abroad. This called to her sense of adventure, and she set sail for Paris to complete her academic education at L’École Nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris—a formative year where she presented her first runway show.
