Scripted 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. She also dressed a very popular girl group called Havok Jones, and Khadiyah "KD" from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. She was featured on BET.com in 2015 during AIFW. The collection has been featured in several magazines including Vocess Magazine, Linger Magazine and recent BONHEUR Fashion Magazine. Scripted1 is now located in Miami, FL and Atlanta, GA.
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!
