Melissa Luster 

After four gelato filled months studying fashion illustration and figure design at Instituto di Moda Burgo in Milan, I realized my childhood passion of crafting and creating did have a purpose all along. Upon returning to New York to finish up college at Fordham University, I continued illustrating in my free time, experimenting with a variety of different mediums and materials. In the summer of 2015, I launched Illusterations, an illustration brand  featuring hand-drawn objects d’arts, fashion figures, and stationery with feminine flair.
