Growing up in the country, Shawna had a lot of free time to daydream and get creative. She was initially drawn to the arts and design through music. Her parents were very supportive and accommodating to her overactive imagination and musical ambitions, making sure she had a guitar to play and endless art supplies to keep her busy.

Coming to MC also allowed Shawna to fulfill a childhood dream that she shared with a cousin who is no longer with her but whom she thinks about every day. It was this relationship that truly motivated Shawna to study fashion and to pursue it as a career.

Her Graduating collection is a gritty mix of musical references and punk rock detailing. From plaid to grommets, the collection was inspired by the musician lifestyle. The garments feature silhouettes that are perfect for the jam to the after party.shawna white logo
