“Artists Bio”

Originally born in Montreal, Melissa was influenced by her mother who worked in garment production for large scale clothing distributors in that city. Since experimenting with textiles most of her life, Melissa is proud to say she is primarily self-taught.

Working as a vintage clothing buyer for well over a decade has inspired Melissa to create garments with older textiles because of the amazing quality and special characteristics a lot of these textiles have.

There is a double advantage in using sustainable materials; not only do they reduce waste, but they add distinctive personality to all of her eye-catching, stylistic compositions. Special details are added to her designs like appliqué, hand stitching & hand dying.

Every handmade piece is made with up to 95% sustainable materials and locally produced in Vancouver, BC.

Designs by Adhesif Clothing can be found in their flagship location at 2202 Main Street in Vancouver as well as local and national artisan markets like The Nifty for Fifty Sale, Shiny Fuzzy Muddy, The Circle Craft Summer & Christmas Markets, Filberg Festival among other festivals and events.

The eclectic line has caught the eye of local and international media. Her work has been featured in multiple fashion magazines like FLARE & FASHION and on television networks like The Knowledge Network & CBC.

Melissa looks forward to designing all future collections from recycled materials and to maintain that special personal touch lost in many mass-produced garments. In this way her clients can continue looking good as well as feeling great!
