Melissa Fleis from "Project Runway" is one of the contestants in Season 10 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is a 31-year-old designer who grew up in Rogers City, Michigan, and is currently living in San Francisco, California.

Melissa Fleis ("Project Runway") knew that she wanted to be a designer ever since she was a little girl. The first garment she ever made was a skirt. She received an MFA in Fashion Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.

Fleis considers her design strengths to be that she has a forward, distinct look with couture garment construction and experimental design techniques and that she is hard-working and organized. She, however, professes her weakness to be overthinking it.

Fleis draws inspiration from historical art movements. While designing, she likes listening to Bauhaus, The Smiths, and Swann Danger. She considers a leather jacket to be a fashion must, whereas UGGS are a definite fashion faux pas in her book and drive her crazy! Her favorite designers are Ann Demeulemeester, Rick Owens and Yohji Yamamoto, while her favorite style icons are Nancy Cunard, Patti Smith and Daphne Guinness, and her super model muse is Kate Moss.
