Divine Life Of Ryley

Meg Ryley,designer

Meg has always been intensely creative. As a child, she would pick up a Barbie doll and her mother’s scarf and turn the doll into an African queen wrapped in purple striped silk, complete with a fantastic story to go with her. Or build a secret clubhouse with her sister using cushions, blankets and colorful findings. These early musings later manifested themselves in drawing, painting and sculpture. But it was her love of travel, creativity and the story told with cloth that set her on a path to being a designer.

Meg earned her degree from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology, New York, with additional training from Polimoda in Florence, Italy. During this period she participated in several shows, always drawing attention due to her quality of craftsmanship and uniquely beautiful  garments. With an internship at Oscar de la Renta under her belt and a concentration in couture dress making, she went on to work for the American Couture house “Maggie Norris”. Couture allowed her to create exclusive garments for some of the world’s most discerning clients such as HRH Princess Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece, International Actress Halle Berry, and many others. Working with the most exquisite materials in the world and couturiers in Paris solidified her love of the beauty and fantasy created by fashion.

During her career she has traveled extensively throughout the globe sourcing and seeking out artisans, experience that drives the creation of her collection each season. Visits to weaving houses and block printing studios, watching hand embroiderers draw a tale in beads and thread are all part of her inspiration.
Divine Life of Ryley is a collection designed around a passion for experience, beautiful clothing and amazing colors. Each collection has a history, and an inspiration or story drawn from the intense colors of the world, travels to distant places, and the happenings of life. All of these inspirations are pulled together and wrapped up in a simply beautiful, modern design with amazing quality. Sequins that mimic the glint of sunlight on the Bay of Bengal or a shade of gray that is reminiscent of the fading light of day in New York City. The collection is tailored for a woman who loves beauty without fuss. The collection has been presented in many international fashion weeks, including the Coterie in New York City, LA Fashion Week and Miami Fashion Week and is currently available in exclusive retail locations in the United States and United Kingdom.
