Styling the Stars: Shun Melson’s Rise to Success

Passion is a powerful tool to have. Those who possess it, use it to make their dreams come true. Shun Melson has a passion for fashion and she has cultivated this into a business that allows her to express her personal style. Furthermore, dressing some of the industries top movers and shakers.  Some of the people she has worked with include singers Fantasia, Monica, Jennifer Hudson and rappers Shawty-Lo and Gucci Mane.

Jennifer HudsonThrough her fashion empire, Creative Solutionz LLC, is creating trends and setting standards in the urban fashion industry while still keeping it classy and timeless.

Her services are not just limited to wardrobing. Creative Solutionz offer an array of personal services that are as diverse as it’s clientele.

From personal styling and shopping, consulting to creating look books, organizing, maintaining and designing closets, this company has the answers to all of the fashion needs regardless of  the client’s  budget.

Shun’s ultimate goal is to make all of her clients feel and look like superstar’s.

As a native of Atlanta, she prides herself in starting her business in the south. This original Georgia Peach’s flare for fashion comes from her background in retail.

Her big break came when she worked at Atlanta’s exclusive shoe boutique, Jeffrey. Noticing her impeccable taste, her clients would trust her to find clothing to match the shoes they bought from her.

Entrepreneurship is all about taking risks and chances. After a dispute with her manager, Shun took a big risk by leaving her comfortable job at Jeffery’s and taking her passion to the next level. She called one of her best clients, who just happened to be R&B sensation Monica, and began doing wardrobe styling for her.


She eventually began making house calls for others and decided to invest her impeccable taste and talent into her own business.

The transition from shoe saleswoman to entrepreneur was quite easy for her, for she eats, sleeps and breathes fashion. Besides being dedicated and loving what she does, Shun studies her craft and this is what makes her a trailblazer!

As a personal stylist, Shun is an artist. She displays her masterpieces in a classy and confident way. Her signature style is timeless and clean and she incorporates this with her celebrity clients personalities.

She has transformed those that we see on the mainstream to inspire us to imitate their style.

This woman is so talented that through her stellar fashion sense, she is not just making people look fly, but also building their images. A prime example is through Atlanta rapper, Gucci Mane whose fashion mirror’s his street rhymes.

Yet, Gucci is also a business man and Shun shows that he is a great guy by giving his wardrobe balance by cleaning up his style while still keeping him edgy and young.

Shun is also the creative behind transforming Nene leaks’, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” wardrobe from ill fitting garments into classy ensembles.


As a stylist to a primarily urban-black clientele, Shun has found it hard to get white designers to send pieces to dress her clients in.

“ African Americans spend so much money on clothing, hair and makeup and I find it silly that they don’t target the young black celebrities .”

Instead of dwelling on this situation, she uses this disadvantage as motivation in which this modern day superwoman looks forward to adding  “clothing designer” to her resume. She  is currently working on a leather line for men and women.

Polished, passionate, personable and captivating sum up Shun’s talent. With the intentions of building a brand that is unparallel to none, Creative Solutionz will be a fashion resolution for those who want to look like a million bucks, but do not have the time to put it together.
