I don’t do neutrals well. Ha! Seriously though, I just adore bright colors. They make you FEEL good. Literally! If you are down or not having the best day, throw on a bright pink top or fabulous orange dress and your mood is instantly lifted. It really is amazing, and I love channeling that through clothes. If I can design an article of clothing that will truly make someone uplifted when worn…well, that just might be the best job in the world!
You live in Fort Worth, Texas. How does that city influence your style, if at all?
In addition to your clothing designs you also run a blog, Southern Eclectic. How did you go about choosing the name?
You know it just suddenly came to me! I started my blog before I started my clothing line as a creative outlet to get my mind off of diapers and baby bottles. I was trying to think of the perfect name that would encompass me as a person. The Southern Eclectic literally popped into my head and I was like, yes! That is it!! If I could pick one word to describe my style, it would be eclectic, so it was instantly fitting.
Describe the woman who wears the Sheridan French line.
Well, as I said above, my primary goal was to design colorful pieces that would take women through the craziness of their days and still keep them chic. I also wanted to create pieces that would work for my teenage nieces as well as my mother. That is a big age span – 13 to 75 – but using classic lines solved the problem and now my nieces and mother wear my line beautifully! I am adding in several more styles for 2012 and cannot wait to show everyone…plus bags, baby and home!! Everything was designed for a fabulous life full of color…because there’s nothing better!
The Sheridan French line is available for purchase online or at a handful of retailers across the country.
