Where does my inspiration come from? This is always a question that people ask but one that I find almost impossible to answer.

It comes from everywhere yet nowhere in particular. It is a constant progression from one season to the next. We always aim to create a new statement each season, a fresh sprit and vibe from the previous but always maintaining the essence of MEGAN PARK.

A peek into Megan Park's personal wardrobe of vintage finds!

I collect and love antique textiles.  I collect with no particular season in mind and sometimes I reference something I picked up 15 years ago. I trawl Parisian flea markets and love the vintage shops of London. I love travelling and will hunt out traditional or antique textiles wherever I go. I never copy these embroideries but the techniques and intricate beauty of these works is beyond inspiring.
