Faithful reader Melissa Rae Brown, owner of Penny Rae Vintage, takes vintage pieces and reconstructs them into something new and wonderful. Melissa is currently competing in a contest called Project: Design!. Project:Design! was created to find the best new fashion design talent and provide a high-profile launching pad for their careers. Project:Design! supports the creativity, innovation and artistry of new designers by giving them the exposure, experience and tools they need to take their collections from runway to retail.
Melissa is asking for votes from the vintage community. The 6 designers with the most votes receive a runway show at St. Louis Fashion Week. If you like what you see, vote for Melissa here! Good luck, Melissa!
