Melissa is available for work
Mel Hewgill is a menswear designer currently based in London, UK. Specialising in tailoring, knitwear and textiles, Hewgill pushes the boundaries of traditional menswear by embracing themes of male sensuality and femininity in her designs. She often references classical and twentieth century sculpture in her work. Hewgill was selected to be part of the University of Westminster BA Fashion catwalk show at London Fashion Week in June 2022, and to have her portfolio displayed on the British Fashion Council website. She has previous work experience at Simone Rocha and Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, as well as with knitwear designer Cecile Tulkens.
