Megan Huntz makes a women's Ready-to-Wear collection built on the belief that elegance can be an easy, everyday practice.
With a degree in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute (1999), Megan went to Milan to pursue her Masters in Fashion Design at Domus Academy in 2003. After spending nearly a decade in Europe, she took inspiration in the craft and style associated with Italian fashion.
With a mantra of "local, ethical, sustainable," her line of fine clothing is entirely produced in her hometown of Atlanta by a small community of sewing craftsmen, in the tradition she learned in Italy. Apart from silk being her favorite medium, she mostly uses all natural fibers like linen and wool, which last longer and make a lower environmental impact. She also creates limited edition runs using dead-stock fabrics and remnants - which play a part in taking something that could be wasted and turning it into something beautiful, coveted and perhaps most importantly, indispensable. (Which happens to be a southern theme, applied to the times we live in today.)
With a practical eye, a love for silk, and modern influences, her collection includes dresses and separates that transition from day to evening and transcend the seasons. Known for its clean lines yet undeniable feminine touch, the line has become a favorite of creative women of all ages and all backgrounds. In September of 2018, she opened her flagship shop, now located in the Morningside Village neighborhood of Atlanta.
