Megan created Southern Femme as a way to share her fashion adventures, inspirations, and her most coveted style tips with Southern women.
At an early age, Megan had a keen eye for fashion and an undying passion for wardrobe styling. Her mother often laughs that Megan would come home from elementary school with her tunic tucked into her leggings, wanting to give herself a truly unique look on the playground. Throughout Megan’s formative years, there were shopping trips with her fabulously supportive family to stylish hubs such as Paris, London, and Florence. The moment Megan stepped foot on the Rue de St Honore in Paris, amidst her friends-Yves Saint Laurent, Fendi, and of course Colette– she knew she would live and breathe STYLE forever.
After studying a combination of French and Art History in college, Megan moved to the land of all things fashion: New York City. In the fashion capital of the world, her eye for style was honed further working for a famed Trend Forecaster. There she learned to analyze the runway collections and even predict ‘the next big thing’ in fashion. To take her fashion knowledge to the next level, Megan pursued a Masters from Parsons School of Design, where many of her favorite designers (i.e. Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, and Proenza Schouler) also studied.
But the South was wooing her back with its’ slower pace, picturesque landscape, and yes m’ams and no sirs. Megan’s biggest aspiration upon moving back to the heart of Dixie was spreading her insurmountable love for fashion with her fellow Southern women. Southern Femme spurred from this desire to educate her favorite women in the world on both the dream world of haute couture, high-end fashion, as well as your oh so important day-to-day wardrobe. Megan savors the ‘ah ha’ moments of her Style Coaching clients when they discover new outfit combinations in what they thought was their ‘boring’ wardrobe, or lighting up when that perfect outfit for their daughter’s wedding comes to life.
Megan is constantly inspired by the women she has the pleasure of lovingly coaching, as well as the creative juices that are allowed to flow when styling and producing fashion shoots for magazines, such as Birmingham Magazine, Alabama Magazine, and Seventeen. Megan still can’t quite believe she is living her dream of spreading the fashion gospel with those she cherishes most: Southern women.
