I’ve been a fan of Meg Biram for years – her #GSD series is one of my very favorites, and I adore her personal style. I was excited when she launched the Meg Biram shop, and thrilled when she shared that the majority of the items in her shop are made in America (including A-list brand Elizabeth Dehn x One Love Organics)! Meg was kind enough to answer some of my questions… I can’t wait to see what comes next for her new shop! Thank you, Meg!
What drives you?
My drive is just an inner thing I can’t explain. I’ve always been the way I am. I didn’t realize it until after college while I was talking to a friend on the phone, that not everyone thought about business like I did. I’m an entrepreneur in my blood.
What makes your day?
Flowers. Anything my husband and I laugh really hard at. A good meal. A surprise. A great email in my inbox.
What are your style essentials?
All black everything. You need one of everything in black.
What piece of advice has been most helpful/would you give to other makers?
- Stick with your gut, your vision.
- Educate yourself about everything.
- If you aren’t obsessed with it, you won’t stick with it.
- Find a few people you can constantly go to for advice or for an opinion.
Where do you like to shop?
I do most of my shopping online. Mostly for convenience. I love shopping in person, but don’t make the time for it very often. I can also support small businesses around the US by shopping from their websites. Win win.
Where do you escape?
In the summer I head down to the pool at our building frequently. I love traveling, reading, painting, yoga — all of those things are escapes for me.
Why do you support brands that manufacture in America?
I love it when I find products I want to carry that are made in America. That makes me more inclined to want to purchase them for the shop and for myself. Knowing I’m supporting someone else’s dreams while purchasing something I love is an amazing feeling.
Why is your collection different/special?
My shop is very curated. Anything I carry in my shop I either love, use, own, would like to own myself, or would give as a gift. I felt like there was a hole in the online market for my specific aesthetic, so I saw the opportunity to fill it.
