As a 2020 Silver Jacket Entrepreneur, Shelby is currently taking business classes specifically designed for fashion community and is aiming to earn her Silver Jacket at the Texas Fashion Awards this year. Through the Silver Jacket Entrepreneur Program, she’s working towards being deemed a “Ones-To-Watch Texas fashion business” with the launch of her first ready to wear collection at TEXAS FASHION WEEK™ in 2020.
“Clothing has the ability to transform the wearer. Fabrics and textiles help to determine whether a garment is categorized as business, formal or casual wear. I love being able to create from a blank slate. The best part is watching the design progress from the initial sketch to the finished garment. To be able to create something unique, that allows for the wearer to be instilled with confidence is what I strive to accomplish. I can’t wait to bring my designs to life and show what Texas has to offer the fashion industry.”
