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.
The design and sample making process is a wild ride. Sometimes, a design comes to life exactly as I had imagined. Sometimes a piece turns out even better than I could have imagined. But, sometimes, the initial sample just doesn't live up to my dreams. So, I have to work and re-work the design or fabric selection until it's perfect.

Today I thought I'd share ten facts with y'all that you may not know about me. I always love reading these types of posts, so I hope you enjoy. I'd love to get to know you better, so please feel free to share something in the comments or my latest Instagram or Facebook post.
1. I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina. I moved to Washington, DC in May 2015 after I got married.
2. I attended UNC and met my husband through a good friend of mine who was also his cousin while he was at Duke. My friend and I (his cousin) were born a day apart in the same hospital and went to kindergarten (and later high school) together. We were always the two tallest kids in class.
