Born and raised in Medicine Hat, Shelley grew up influenced by her mother and grandmother who created and worked with textiles. At an early age, Shelley dictated her fashion wants and she was allowed this artistic expression.
A unique high school teacher also encouraged Shelley to let her artistic side and unique personality shine through. That gave her the confidence to move to Calgary and attend Form & Function Design Academy. She learned all aspects of the fashion industry including, sketching designs, drafting patterns and sewing her own runway line in her final year.
The fashion industry is competitive and expensive so to pay the bills, Shelley found other ways to express her style sense. She did piece work for two up and coming designers and worked in the kitchen industry.
After returning home to Medicine Hat, Shelley trained to become a Certified Esthetician and Cosmetic Technician currently working part-time at First Impression Hair & Body Studio.
Working at Dress Your Lashes has allowed Shelley the opportunity to style individuals and touch their lives not only by finding them amazing pieces in order that they can create their own amazing style, but also by making them feel like amazing women that are not afraid to turn heads and most of all love themselves while feeling worthy of beauty in all of its wonder.
Shelley loves what she does and she would love to translate your personality and best features into a look you love. Her foremost goal is to help you look and feel fabulous.
