Meskita showed her fall/winter 2014/2015 collection at New York Fashion Week on Sunday, February 9, 2014 and received a standing ovation at the end of the show; a rare sight at fashion week! The models pranced down the runway in slick long ponytails wearing eye catching, wearable designs in bold shades of blue, red, fuchsia, classic black and white. The silhouettes offered both pencil and full skirts belted for an edgy yet ladylike vibe.

I had the honor of interviewing Meskita backstage after the show. She is an incredible inspiration to anyone interested in becoming a designer and/or starting a business in general. She learned how to sew, design, cut patterns and source fabric by the age of fifteen. Her Grandmother was her inspiration and continues to be a valuable source of inspiration for her. Her grandmother was a business woman and taught Meskita how to turn her design talents into a business. Meskita firmly believes a garment should be beautiful inside and out and takes special care to ensure the high quality of her collection not only in craftsmanship but in design.
