Creating a product that is durable, long-lasting, ethically made, and sustainable, while still being fashion-forward and colorful is our top priority. Blair Mead Designs aims to improve our earth, the workplace, and people’s closets, one piece at a time.
The Blair Mead Promise:
Hello, I'm Blair Mead! I first began drawing on notepads as a distraction from my studies while an undergraduate at Georgetown University in the 90's. The sketches eventually gave way to colorful drawings which evolved into paintings and murals. In the early 2000s, I became interested in transferring my art onto fabrics. Digital textile printing was an emerging technology at the time, and it was quickly becoming available to amateur artists like myself. It was also more sustainable; the process uses low impact dyes that are more eco-friendly than traditional forms of printing. Creating a sustainable brand was, and remains, a priority for me.
I eventually taught myself how to sew, and it was at this point that I learned to merge my love of fashion with my passion for art, textiles, and the environment. I started designing clothes and accessories for friends and family members. The feedback they gave me was very encouraging. It gave me confidence to start my own business. In 2017, I established Blair Mead Designs as a full time operation dedicated to creating a unique line of accessories and apparel for women that came with a "greener" message. In a world where the throw away closet has dominated the fashion industry for so long, I found myself striving to do something different: to create a product that is durable and long-lasting; ethically made; and sustainable. My line is not only about artistic expression,but also setting a new standard for the future of fashion. A greener, better experience.
