Hi! Welcome to Meghan Evans, a clothing line for tall women designed and manufactured in Washington, DC.
I'm 5'10'' (admittedly on the shorter side of tall) with a really (really!) long torso. Given my long torso, I've struggled my entire life to find tops, dresses, blazers, and jackets that fit well. While retailers continue to expand their offerings when it comes to tall pants, the options for unique tops haven't seemed to grow at the same rate.
I eventually became so frustrated by the lack of options, I started buying dresses that I knew were too short and turning them into tops. You can always hem something, right? I loved finding dresses with unique fabric, sleeve detail or pattern and making a one-of-a-kind top out of them. My husband eventually asked why I didn't just make tops that fit tall women to begin with, and that's where I got the idea to launch this clothing line.
I am so excited to share the collection with you! Each item in the collection was designed to fill a hole in my own closet; pieces I knew I wanted, but could not find in tall sizes. As such, I selected fabric and design details to make them easy to wear every day of the week - from the workweek to the weekend. The line is filled with pieces that are classic with an unexpected twist which keeps them fun to wear, easy to mix and match with what you already own, and in style for years to come. They have become staples in my closet and I hope they become your most loved items, too.
Not only do I aim to make pieces that fit your tall frame, I want to produce quality items in an ethical manner. As such, I am critical when sourcing fabrics and trims. I personally wash and wear all samples before they go into production. I also work with a local, Washington, DC company to sample and produce all pieces in my collection. This affords me the ability to be very involved in the production process to guarantee a great garment.
