Designer of the Day…Mary Meyer
Sometimes I’m inspired by the most simplistic of styles, which is why I wanted to feature today’s designer, Mary Meyer of Mary Meyer Clothing. I love her collection of geometric graphic tops and dresses…
Mary Meyer, a Venice, CA native, has been creating these great prints since she learned printmaking, woodwoork, dying, and weaving at the California College of the Arts. She combined all these learnings with her love for fashion and created Mary Meyer Clothing in 2005. Since then, Meyer has expanded her prints (which are inspired by African Art, Pop Art, & 80’s imagery) to include her own “visual language”. The neat thing about this is that each hang tag on the garments tell you what phrase the top or dress is saying – it’s also encoded in the symbols of the surface design.
Meyer now lives in Brooklyn where she also runs an art house that showcases local art and festivities. Her garmenst have been seein on various celebs and can be found in stores in the CA & NY area…and in Tokyo if you happen to be lucky enough to shop there!
