Chavon Fortson, the designer of Chavon Shree is an Arkansas native and majored in apparel studies and received a bachelor’s degree in Human Environmental Science from the University of Arkansas. Her first home economics class in middle school was the light bulb moment for her to realize she wanted to be a fashion designer. Just seeing the finish product of the pillowcases and pajama pants they were making was so fascinating to her, so the rest was history from there.
