SPRING 2013


Design is in Sheridan French's blood. Inspired by her great grandmother, Sheridan, age 12, created her first ball gown and has never looked back. Sheridan has pursued her passion for design while studying in Europe for a Masters degree, both modeling on the runway and designing her own collections. Sheridan then cemented her fashion credentials in Prada's London Press Office. Now back in her home town of Fort Worth, Texas raising a family of her own, Sheridan's lifelong dream of owning her own label was realized with the launch of Sheridan French, a chic line of womenswear that is a fusion of exceptional prints and classic, flawless design. Sheridan's garments reflect her eye for gorgeous textiles and a fresh, artistic approach to fashion design in the twenty-first century. By combining unique, hand-woven prints with timeless lines, the Sheridan French brand encompasses a truly vibrant collection of wearable pieces (essential!) that are undeniably fun, effortlessly chic and made with your lifestyle in mind. Sheridan's brand is a celebration of color and her own inimitable zest for life, and her wish for you is to feel as extraordinary wearing her designs as she has been enthusiastic in creating them, allowing your individuality to shine through. Pure perfection.

SPRING 2013 third time’s a charm.


FOR THIS COLLECTION, I stayed true to my ikat roots of the previous two spring collections, but incorporated other elements that hinted at travels from abroad as well. Alligators, elephants, oversized palm leaves and what I love to call the India Floral print jump from style to style this year, in bright, attention-getting colors on everything from cotton to silk.

SONGKET M U LT I

“ My most colorful print on a skirt that should be hanging in everyone's closet. Throw on a blouse for work, or a tank top for the weekend - done and done! As for the dress, boning in the bodice and a hidden zipper really makes this one a treasure. �

I loved having the opportunity to create a colorful and vibrant mix of patterns that complimented and enhanced one another, while tweaking every shape, every piece of negative space and every measurement until the perfect balance was achieved.
