Wedding Wear for the Every Day
With Meredith Stoecklein of LEIN
On “making it” in New York City, ready-to-wear bridal fashion, and a front row seat to a new concept of wedding wear
with Meredith Stoecklein – Founder and Designer of LEIN
After spending 10 years in New York City building LEIN, a bespoke bridal collection made for the big day and every day, Founder and Designer Meredith Stoecklein packed her bags and hopped on a one-way flight to her family home in Sun Valley, Idaho – amid the global pandemic of 2020. On this episode of End of the Night Meredith shared the intimate details into how the decision ultimately helped her overall design stating, “Idaho felt great for my mental space of being outside, and being able to go on hikes, and see my family.”
While fresh air and horseback riding have their perks, during this episode, Meredith and I discuss the challenges the designer continues to face living “outside” the fashion district. We dive into how LEIN has restructured their business model, defined the importance of ease in a bridal look, and what it’s like to have her work worn to events where designers like Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta have pieces in the room. LEIN Bridal walks a cool line of crafting pieces suitable for any event.
Whether you’re longing to learn more about this emerging concept of ready-to-wear bridal fashion, what it takes to “make it” in New York City, or are looking for insight on forging an eco-friendly brand, you’re sure to enjoy this episode of End of the Night.
