Mélissa Nepton became known in 2009 when she took part in TVA’s reality TV show La Collection. The Quebec version of Project Runway, the show brought together a dozen or so young fashion designers to compete for a $100,000 contract with the Hudson’s Bay Company. After placing second in the competition, Mélissa Nepton launched her eponymous brand later that year during Montreal Fashion Week. Since then, her clothing has been worn by numerous Quebec celebrities, including actresses Mélissa Desormeaux-Ernest and Geneviève Brouillette, and hosts Anouk Meunier and Mitsou Gélinas.
