About the Designer
Mallorie Dunn is a NYC based Fashion Designer. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology and Pratt Institute she had many corporate design jobs before deciding to switch to a life of freelance work. Through the freedom a freelance schedule allows her – she was able to launch her line, SmartGlamour, that she has been creating designs for since 2007. (SmartGlamour as it is today was not launched until February 2014.)
SmartGlamour morphed into what it is today after many discussions about women’s body image issues and the lack of accurate representation of women in the media. Always having the desire to make clothes – Mallorie found her real passion behind the designs when she realized she could help women with her garments. She’s excited as SmartGlamour continues to grow into a even more fully realized movement of body positivity and overall wellness for women and femme presenting and identifying individuals.
Additionally, Mallorie considers herself to be a teacher, seamstress, artist, stylist, and writer. She is constantly searching for new ways to express herself, better herself, and help others. SmartGlamour is a culmination of all of these things.
