WHEN MEREDITH MELLING LEFT HER POST AS SENIOR MARKET EDITOR AT VOGUE AFTER MORE THAN 16 YEARS WITH THE MAGAZINE TO START LA MARQUE WITH VALERIE BOSTER, THE FASHION WORLD WAS BUZZING. SINCE, THE BRANDING FIRM HAS STRENGTHENED FASHION FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
With clients ranging from Theory to Carolina Herrera, Meredith and Valerie do anything and everything. Branding and editorial vision? Check. Social media? Check. Event production and personal styling? Check and check. When Meredith isn’t taking on the (fashion) world, she’s enjoying her husband and their two kids (with another on the way!) from a chic Noho apartment. Keep scrolling for Meredith’s next vacation, her pregnancy dressing musts and what she’s carrying with her this season.
Describe your style in 6 words or less.
New England meets bohemian.
How has your fashion sense changed since baby (or since you got pregnant)?
I wear a lot more black when I am pregnant for its slimming properties.

Mother/Child matching, yea or nay?
Nay, unless it happens organically. Just the other day my daughter and I were walking along the Bowery and I realized we were both in striped t-shirts (hers had a chiffon ruffle) and Birkenstocks (hers were gold glitter).
What traits are you hoping your child inherits from you?
Rational, considerate, adventurous

What bag are you currently carrying?
I’ve become quite minimal. I actually mainly carry a Claire Vivier credit card holder and put everything in my coat pockets. Since it’s summertime, I’ll probably soon return to my straw market bag.
If you could only keep 5 products in your bag for you and baby/child, what would they be?
Rosebud lip salve (for me), Cheerios (baby), iPhone (for me and child), Honest diapers (for baby), organic hand wipes (for all)
Where was your last vacation and where will your next one be? Kids, please or kid-free?
Our last vacation was to Turks and Caicos. Next vacation will be Martha’s Vineyard. Kids, please.
Top 3 ‘dos’ for dressing during pregnancy.
1 / Do go to Zara and buy a size or two or three up.
2 / Borrow from your man.
3 / Flats, flats,flats.
