HarperSage | Founder and Designer
Meghan Herman grew up in the 1990s, the youngest of five trying to keep up with her older brothers. She started playing soccer when she was 4 years old. Adults and peers were quick to label her a“tomboy.” She went on to play D1 soccer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison (UW), but she started to look for a creative outlet to balance out the grind of competition. She chose to study textile and fashion design at UW, eventually landing at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. She has designed for ultra-femme brands like Carolina Herrera and Anthropologie, where at times, her work was deemed too “masculine.” HarperSage was born from her desire to embrace her own duality. It’s the first ethical lifestyle brand to empower dynamic, multifaceted women through style and community. Herman hopes to inspire other women to believe they, too, can be anything they want, even if those things seem like opposites.
