It was not my intention to buy myself a gift. I already own a Meredith Franck original, purchased many years ago. I simply wanted to interview her and write about her newest designs, influenced by her interest in abstract art. But there’s something magical about walking down the shadowy path beside her house, through the tiny backyard filled with plants and comfy cushioned seating areas, and into the cottage that is her showroom. All (well, most) budget concerns are left on the street. This is a place for draping myself in luscious fabrics, donning fashions flattering to any figure, and telling myself I deserve a little self-indulgence.
