About Meg

A Couple of Questions for Meghan Kinney, designer of meg

Q: Did you always want to be a fashion designer?
A: It was either rock star or fashion designer—as I am practical and have no musical talent, fashion was really my only career choice. My mother and grandmother owned boutiques so I grew up in retail, which is why opening my own shops seemed natural. Truth is I almost lost my shirt in wholesale after four seasons and after sample selling out of my Chelsea apartment. I realized that if I could live in a storefront I only needed to sell 10 dresses at that time to pay rent. So that was how I started.

Q: If I said something was meg-tastic, what would that mean to you?
A: I try to dress women for their real lives, but give them just a hint of sophistication so the everyday isn’t boring. Dressed but not overdressed. A meg-tastic piece should make you feel fashionable, elegant and chic but also like you are wearing PJ's. Effortless fashion is always the goal!!
