If you have been following our blog…you probably read my post last year about one of our favorite designers SHERIDAN FRENCH!!! If you haven’t heard of her….here she is!
She is the cutest thing ever and not to mention designs amazing clothes! She is all about chic and easy to wear silouhettes made with hand woven and dyed fabrics created in Bali. She uses bright ikat designs adorned with colored trim and embellishments! I have really gotten to know Sheridan the past couple of seasons and she is so much fun! Her personality is just as fabulous as her designs!!! She lives in Fort Worth, TX with husband and two children…soon to be three. How is she doing all of this….a career that is blowing up, and raising her little munchkins? Find out here on her blog, “The Southern Eclectic” (http://sheridanfrench.blogspot.com/ ) this is her life as an open book and is definitely worth checking out. You will fall in love with Sheridan as soon as you start to read! This girl has a lot on her plate with two babies….another one on the way and a full time job! She handles her biz on her own and I give her a ton of credit for being able to juggle it as well as she does. We can’t wait to see what else is to come for this talented designer. She may take a much needed break after baby #3 arrives in the next few weeks…..but you haven’t seen the last of Sheridan French!
Here are some of our favorite styles for 2012! Hope you love them as much as we do…which one is your fav???

It was LOVE at first sight the day that this INCREDIBLY talented new designer, Sheridan French, sent me her first lookbook. Spring 2011 is her debut season and I am honored and so excited to be one of the first stores to carry her line. Let me just tell you…this girlie is going to make it big! Sheridan prospected stores across the country that she wanted to see her first collection in and MEADOW was lucky enough to be one of them! She put together the most beautiful lookbook I have ever seen from a young designer…really any designer….

When this baby was delivered by our trusty mailman I was blown away by EVERY detail….(yes, I am still talking about a lookbook). First let me just say that most mailers and lookbooks from designers and showrooms hardly get noticed….because we get SOOOO many. This beauty was a page turner…in fact I could hardly put it down! Needless to say…the next thing I did was pick up the phone and call to get more info! I had just finished working on orders from New York market and was really overbought for Spring…of course I managed to figure out a way to make room for these lovelies and I am so glad I did! Sheridan French is by far my favorite new line for Spring 2011!
An incredibly talented mother of two from Ft Worth, Texas who followed her dreams in starting her own label. Isn’t she adorable?

Sheridan’s collection is vibrant, chic, classic, and versatile. Her eye for textiles is impeccable and she has a true knack for design. Here are a couple of the pieces that have arrived and/or will be coming soon!
We have several other tunics that I don’t have photographed that will be here in the next couple of weeks! It is incredible the amount of local buzz she has gotten just from the Meadow girls chatting her up to our customers! I seriously had a waiting list to call when the first shipment arrived! If you see something you LOVE or have any inquiries about the line please don’t hesitate to call, e-mail us or post a comment!
Sheridan…Congrats on a fabulous first shipment! Everything is gorgeous…including your hang tags!!!
