To be chic or not to be, that is truly the question. Designers Shanelle and Melissa leave it up to you with their latest brand, Chic by Choice . Since 2013, the dynamic designer duo has been using their fashion line to break away from cookie cutter fashion and express their unique style.
The fashion line boasts an assortment of accessories; from clutches to earrings and everything in between. “Our inspiration behind this line is to create accessories that will help set you apart from everyone else,” says designers Shanelle and Melissa, “It’s not how you wear the clothes it’s how you accessorize and that’s what most people don’t know.”
The fashion pair met back in college and immediately bonded over their love of fashion. After college, Shanelle and Melissa moved to New York where they got to work on turning on their dream brand into reality.
So what’s next for these “chic” ladies? According to the young women, plans are in the making to expand their accessory brand to men and children. Along with their big plans, the ladies also stress the importance of giving back to the community and creating a platform for new artists. “We will have our own store front not only showcasing our product but giving new young designers the opportunity to be sold in the stores,” said the designers. “There are so many young and talented people out there that have a great idea but don’t know where to start. It’s amazing to be able to give back and help them take steps towards that journey.”
