Hi all! First, I want to thank you for taking the time to check out my project. I hope you like what you see! I am a designer creating my namesake ready-to-wear line in Philadelphia. 

I have crafted every single one of my pieces by hand from start to finish since creating my line three years ago. The process is fun, but in order to deliver my garments to a wider audience I need to begin a wide scale production process. All of the pieces from the Megan Swansen line will be created in the US and will be finished with hand crafted details. I will be distressing and dyeing many of the pieces myself and I have hired the very talented Pan Handle Printers to hand screen print each tee. A hand touch will always be important to the pieces I create. 

Your donations will help to cover the many costs of production (sourcing, pattern digitization, sample production, wholesale production, and tags). I have set up a series of rewards to compensate you for your donation. Rewards include paper dolls, screen printed posters and pieces from the line. If you have any questions or would like more details please feel free to e-mail me any time at mkswansen@gmail.com. I'll keep you all updated along the way. 

Thank you and much love!
