Meredith Acton was born and raised in Massachusetts. After completing her B.A. in Apparel Design and Retailing, she went on to intern at Michael Azu London, Hasbro, and the Boston Ballet, before pursing her M.F.A. in Fashion Design in the School of Fashion. Meredith was inspired by Lewis Hine’s investigative photography of child laborers in the early 1900s. Meredith combined traditionally utilitarian fabrics such as cotton shirting with more refined fabrics including silk chiffon and organza. Hints of transparency highlight the collection, adding a subtle softness.
