Carissa is a self-educated local designer based in Fall River, MA who became curious about the world of fashion back in 2011 by reconstructing old band t-shirts with a close friend. This practice sparked a serious interest in furthering the craft and through pure determination accompanied by real passion, she began creating dresses for personal enjoyment. Over years of showcasing collections, self-promoting, and an overwhelming positive response, it became very clear that this was her calling.

As a do-it-yourself designer, client consultant, and seamstress, Carissa works closely with her clients to create truly unique custom pieces. Whether it is for a wedding, prom, First-Communion, holiday party, or other red carpet event, the look you desire is not only attainable in dreams. She is inspired by vintage fabrics and classic trends and uses her background in movement and sculpture to deliver modern day tastefulness. There is always an element of romance or playfulness in a Carissa Lynne Design to bring excitement back to self-presentation.  The importance of representing yourself through expression is something that she holds very near and dear to her heart and hopes to inspire others with this platform.
