Brooklyn Clothing Lab

Fashion Designer Mel Simon is driven by a love of fashion and well constructed clothes. This season Mel presented a showcase of gowns that are inspired by menswear. The Genesis Collection is a whimsical fashion gender-bender that transforms the masculine elegance of The Great Gatsby era into the feminine flair of today's street-smart fashionista.

Mel Simon's beginnings started with an apprenticeship with a local tailor in his homeland of Trinidad. After graduating high school, Simon set an ambitious goal to learn the fundamentals of garment creation before traveling to the United States. It didn't take long for Simon to enroll at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), majoring in pattern making. This formal education gave structure to his spirited and fashion-forward designs. Simon's diligence earned him experience at reputable New York apparel firms such as Bianca Leather, Christian Kent and Carmen Marc Valvo. Simon has fabricated the patterns of fashions worn by red carpet celebrities; including Lucy Liu, Kim Cattrall, Vanessa Williams, Courtney Thorne- Smith, Joan Rivers and Queen Latifah.

Simon's entrepreneurial drive led him to launch "Attitude: the Look Shop", a specialty boutique in Brooklyn, NY which offered ready-to-wear sportswear and custom made pieces. Later, Simon partnered to form the Simon Duncan brand, which debuted Fashion Week, Fall 2002 in Bryant Park. Simon's latest endeavor re-conceives the interplay of textiles, prints, and shapes ...leading to the creation of the Brooklyn Clothing Lab. Simon remains focused on his goal to become a prominent Fashion Designer in his own right. Simon manifests his own creations from concept and design to production and delivery. He is a salient designer delivering refreshing fashions that make it easy to be glamorous.
