World MasterCard Fashion Week > Mélissa Nepton
Fashion Montreal 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.” She completed her prep school years attending the renowned fashion program at Marie-Victorin College before entering Montreal’s L’École supérieure de mode. Mélissa’s talent was already noticeable and attracted her teachers’ support, encouraging her to pursue studies abroad. This called to Mélissa’s 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.
