Back to the post. I had the opportunity to interview fashion designer Heidi Merrick in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago at an event in her honor at Oliver & Lilly’s, the city’s exclusive retailer of her collection. I’ve been really into her Spring/Summer 2012 collection since I first peeped the lookbook ages ago and like Bill Hader’s Stefon would say, “it has something for everyone.” (Did you read that in his voice? I hope so.)
There are sorbet shades, gauze and lace dresses, bright canary yellows and other bold hues, lots of colour-blocked shift dresses and tunics (I Love-with-a-capital-L this one), and while varied, it still maintains Heidi Merrick’s signature laid-back California girl aesthetic, which totally exemplifies Heidi herself.
Heidi is a lot of fun and super easy-going, and I had a great time chatting with her about life, fashion, and the path she took to finding her fit as a designer. You can read the entire interview on MTV FORA here!
Oh, and when you're done doing that, can you pretty-please-and-thank-you go vote for me in Lifetime Collective's Spring Style Blogger Challenge? I double dog dare you to.
