Michelle is a Sr Apparel Designer and Supply Chain Specialist at Savilino. Prior to Savilino, Michelle worked in the fashion industry for various emerging and established brands designing women’s, mens, and childrenswear. Her openness to see, learn, and experience new things in her daily life and through travel has stimulated her creativity from a young age. Her passion for sustainability sparked her interest in Supply Chain Management, which gave her greater awareness for the journey her designs would take and their global impact–from the materials used, the people manufacturing them, the people wearing them, and their effect on the environment at the end of their lifecycle. Supply chain has allowed her to hone in on her ability to purposefully design something beautiful and see it through from concept to fulfillment.
Michelle received a B.S. in Textiles and Apparel Design from the University of Texas at Austin and a Business Foundations Certificate from the McCombs School of Business. She is a member of APICS and is a Certified Supply Chain Professional.
