Sheila Frank is the independent designer behind the 2 yr old self-titled label, Sheila Frank. A fine artist at heart, Sheila studied at Pennsylvania College of Art and Design. After just one year she realized that her future was to be creative in the world of fashion.
A graduate of the acclaimed Moore College of Art and Design, Sheila Frank received numerous awards during her college career. An internship for Charlotte Ronson in NYC preceded her BFA degree in Fashion Design.
Upon completion Sheila Frank quickly began to organize and design the launch of her self titled label just 2 months after graduation.
In 2007 Sheila began her Swimwear label influenced by pinups of the 40s and 50s and a Resort Swim collection. Soon thereafter in 2008 Sheila showed a Demi Couture collection in Jan 2008. For Spring 2009 Collection Sheila showed a RTW Collection that was more of a party girl style. Most recently Sheila showed a RTW Collection for Spring 2010 that is the most wearable/ marketable compared to previous collections. This collection did not include swimwear for the first time, which is Sheila's staple.
Sheila uses her strong work ethic and continuous creativity to focus on the growth of her label and innovation in her designs. A lover of design from eras past fused with modern aesthetics, Sheila believes that all women deserve to look and feel stylish, no matter what shape or size. This sentiment is reflected in her carefully constructed garments and unique designs. An avid animal lover, Sheila never uses leather or fur in her clothing line.
