ElyseMichele: A woman with a vision. Since childhood, ElyseMichele dreamed of running a fashion empire. In high school, ElyseMichele felt that store-bought clothing wasn't able to express her distinct personality. She started creating her own garments at the age of 15. ElyseMichele attended Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin after graduating high school in 2012 and received her bachelor of the arts in fashion design in 2016. Since graduating, she has devoted her life to her passion for design and worked to bring ElyseMichele Designs to life.
