About The Designer
Scripted1 began back in 2000 with a sketch pad and colored pencils and a vision that could stretch across a football field. It was not until the year 2007 that the first piece was created, and hand sewn by Shay, who is a self-taught designer. Shay received a BFA in Graphic Design in 2006 but decided to add her love of design and use it in a form of fashion as her form of poetry in motion. The name “Scripted" originates from her love and passion of poetry: a writer herself since the age of 12, she uses her poetry and describes her emotions through fabric. Scripted creates pieces which are outspoken and eccentric.
Throughout the years, the line has evolved and developed, adding additional high fashion and swimwear pieces. Shay has dressed up and coming artists such as D’ Zire from Los Angeles, CA; Angie Gruver from Philadelphia, PA; and Bianca Ingram from Philadelphia, PA. In addition, she has also dressed Reality TV Star Jules Thomas from Fear Factor 2006, Vince Sims from CBS46 Atlanta, and Khadiyah from Love and Hip Hop. The collection has been featured in several magazines including VOCESS Magazine, Sheen Magazine, BONHEUR Magazine and Linger Magazine. Most recently the brand was also featured on BET.com for Atlanta International Fashion Week.
By the age of 30 she has already done 6 of her own shows and has been featured in 30+ more from New York to Columbia SC including The Style Exhibition 2009, 2010 & 2012, gracing the stage with the Celebrity Designer from Project Runway Ra' Mon Lawrence and NYC Fashion Runway with Celebrity Guest Designer KL Allen. In 2015 Scripted showcased both collections to the world at Atlanta International Fashion Week which the collection opened the show both nights it was showcased and Walk Fashion Show. In 2016 PBFW was born to help spread awareness about domestic violence and child abuse. In 2017 the brand traveled to NYFW and showcased during SBFW among some of the most notable aspiring designers!
Throughout the years the line has evolved and developed and has become what is known today as Scripted1 for the Couture Market and SAINT XIV for the RTW Market. Both brands are now housed under the household name “The Collections:”. Currently Scripted is working on contracts for showrooms in LA, looking for silent investors and celebrity brand endorsements both brands are located in Atlanta, GA.
