How I Price Product: What You're Paying for When you Buy from ME

How I Price Product: What You're Paying for When you Buy from ME

Ever wondered how a product is priced? In the fashion industry, it's pretty basic. Industry norm dictates that you take the cost of materials (e.g., fabric, zipper, labels) and labor (amount paid for someone to sew the garment) and multiply that number by four to six, sometimes more. 

Sneak Peek of Fall/Winter 2018

Sneak Peek of Fall/Winter 2018

I wish I could say that I will be releasing the Fall/Winter 2018 collection this week or next. But, it won't be ready until the end of this month or early November. And I'm OK with that. We're a slow fashion brand, after all.  We're working to improve the production schedule, and I'm excited that we're on track to release this year's "Winter" collection a month ahead of last year's with even more styles.

In anticipation of the new releases, I thought I'd share some "in progress" shots of a couple of the styles.

Meet the Maker & Tour our Manufacturer's Studio

Meet the Maker & Tour our Manufacturer's Studio

I'm so excited to introduce the maker behind the Meghan Evans brand and share the studio space where our clothing is manufactured with you. As you may already know, I design all ME styles, source the fabric, and work with a woman-owned small run production company located in Washington, DC to manufacture the line. 

Inspiration Behind The V-Neck Top

Sometimes this top gets overlooked. I get it. It's not as flashy as the double peplum. But, it's such a workhorse. Like a not so basic, basic. It looks good tucked in or left untucked thanks to the side-seam splits. And it's fitted without being too fitted (yet not boxy) thanks to the back yolk. The navy pinstripes function as a neutral and can be worn with just about anything. Pair it with your favorite work pants, denim, chinos, a pencil skirt, or shorts.

How I Got the Idea to Start a Clothing Line

How I Got the Idea to Start a Clothing Line

I've shared a little bit about how I got the idea to start this clothing line over the past year. But, I don't think I've told the entire story in one place and I was inspired to do so after sharing the above picture on Instagram stories.

Inspiration Behind The Pencil Skirt

Inspiration Behind The Pencil Skirt

I describe this skirt as "high waisted denim in skirt form". Why? Because it's made out of the same denim as your favorite skinny jeans. So it's stretchy, easy to move in, and my favorite part, it provides the same "holds you in" effect as high rise denim. Plus, it's appropriate for the office. So, it's the perfect piece of denim in my book.

My love for peplum tops knows no bounds. I find that they are extremely flattering no matter your height or shape. I know, some people are quick to say that they can't wear peplum tops. They've even tried some and they didn't work. But, I'm here to tell you that a peplum top can work for you, you just haven't found the right one.

Why Shorts?

Why Shorts?

I'm a dress girl, as you probably noticed. Three out of the first six pieces I designed and released for ME were dresses (and more were developed, I just haven't been able to produce them). But, since moving to DC, I realized the need for a good pair of shorts. But, shorts are hard to find. Especially if a basic pair of chinos or jean shorts aren't your thing. Which, in my case, they aren't. So, I spent a year buying and trying shorts, reading reviews, and talking to friends to figure out what worked and what didn't.

It's Our Anniversary - The Brand Turns 1

It's Our Anniversary - The Brand Turns 1

I can't believe it, but the ME brand turns one on August 1st! The year completely flew by and to be honest, the anniversary snuck up on me. But, I have something exciting in the works as a belated celebration, so stay tuned for more details!

The Sample Making Process & A Sneak Peek of Summer

The Sample Making Process & A Sneak Peek of Summer

I'm currently at the tail end of perfecting samples and have started production on the Summer collection. Because I offer such limited quantities of each style, the actual time it takes to manufacture the collection is relatively short (we will be releasing new pieces in early June).

Olympics vs. Fashion Week

Olympics vs. Fashion Week

I recently stumbled across the question "Would you rather go to the Olympics or Fashion Week?" on social media and I didn't hesitate to answer "Olympics". Almost immediately I felt guilty. Shouldn't I want to go to fashion week? I'm a designer (which is SO strange to say and I can't bring myself to say that I'm a fashion designer). I sell women's clothing. Yet, I'm not dying to go to fashion week.

Sustainable and Ethical Fashion at ME

Sustainable and Ethical Fashion at ME

Something I don't talk about much is how the ME collection is produced in an ethical, sustainable manner. It's a very important aspect of the brand and I wanted to share more about what it means.
