Darling – Talking Shop, Motherhood and Magic with California’s Coolest Designer

If you could personify the best parts of the West Coast — welcoming, warm, free, a creative joie de vivrethat makes you feel like you can conquer the globe — then you’d get Heidi Merrick. As a Los Angeles-based fashion designer, her line evokes a simplicity that can only come through talent, through an ability to take delicate, feminine forms and preserve them so that they’re universal.

Heidi’s also careful to preserve the deeper aspects of who she is as a woman, too. While her success as a designer isn’t something she holds lightly, it’s easy to see that her roles as a wife and mother of two (not to mention as daughter of iconic surfboard shaper Al Merrick) never take second place. And while we know it’s a myth to “effortlessly do it all,” we couldn’t resist chatting with Heidi to see if a little precious golden dust might just rub off.
