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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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).
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.
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.
