MY NAME IS SHELBY RIDER
I am an American fashion designer living in New York City. I am currently working as an assistant designer for Vince Camuto.
I received my BFA in fashion design at Virginia Commonwealth University. I also studied at Santa Reparata in Florence, Italy. My focus is in fashion, but I have also worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, photography intern, and assistant art teacher. My work has been exhibited in New York, Oklahoma, Alabama, Virginia, Italy, Qatar, and China.
I specialize in surface techniques utilizing laser cutting, beading, screen-printing, and fabric manipulation. I love incorporating my fine art background into my pieces, making each garment one of a kind.
I received an undergraduate research grant at VCU to study sustainability in the fashion industry, and I am taking that information and making more clothing using sustainable practices.
