Megan’s degree in Industrial Design, from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn (1999), has given her a basis to explore fashion with a non-traditional approach, as well as cross over into other types of work such as design research, retail design, fashion communication and brand identity work. Her background in fine arts has allowed her to blur the lines of art, fashion and design. She presented Souvenir, a multimedia fashion-art installation, on November 15, 2012 at Space 2 in Atlanta, followed by the showing of her fall collection at Charleston Fashion Week in March of 2013. Figure Studies, a multi-media fashion performance focused on a capsule collection utilizing painted textiles, was shown on June 8, 2013 as part of the Design is Material Exhibition during of Modern Atlanta’s Design Week.
