Up and coming local designer Megan Waldrep will be showing her MEW collection on Friday at Charlotte NC Fashion Week. A lover of vintage clothing and classic Rock ‘n Roll T-shirts, Megan launched her first t-shirt collection, Mew Design, during her Junior year at the University of South Carolina. As her personal style developed, so have the designs. With an established business and reputation for a more rock ‘n roll style, Megan presents Mew, her foray into developing full collections that express her new found maturity and outlook on fashion. With the new Mew collection, she has achieved a more refined aesthetic of edgy meets sophisticated.

For the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Megan wanted to celebrate her love for Charleston, SC and the rich culture that thrives in the city where she lives. With 150 years since the Civil War, Mew’s influence represents Charleston’s history by bringing looks of the past into modern day life. What you will see is a perfect interpretation of people, places, and events of that time mixed with signature Mew style. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection showcases hints of Civil War style and Rock ‘n Roll as you’ve never seen before.

Megan was chosen as a finalist for Charleston Fashion Week 2008 and a semi-finalist for Project Runway. Let’s see what happens in Charlotte this weekend!
