What's New?
My latest collection is comprised of unique lingerie pieces, both naughty and nice, for women who appreciate vintage pinup styles with a modern twist!

The Look: Feminine lingerie inspired garments for the modern girl with a playful chic style. A few have a free spirited rebel/punk flair and a few are sweet, whimsical and doll-like prim.

About Me:

My name is Isolda Marie Meade and I'm a freelance designer based in Columbus, Ohio.  However, I travel frequently and have a solid client base in New York City and the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.  Isolda Couture is a collection of my designs, which was presented for the first time at NOVA Fashion Week on March 1st, 2009. 

I graduated with a B.A. in Fashion Design from Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia and have attended various courses at FIT.  My experience includes being an outsourced vendor for alterations for Lane Bryant and JCrew, working as a Technical Design Temp at Abercrombie & Fitch in 2009 and as a Design Intern for Betsey Johnson's Corporate Office in 2003.  Furthermore, I have worked as a fashion, brand and stage stylist for local bands and completed various freelance design projects including some while living abroad in London, England during the Summer of 2007.

My designs consist of vintage, bohemian, and lingerie styled looks.  I hope you like what you see!  To become a MySpace friend, please visit: (although, I'm rarely on that site these days).

I would like to use this site as a means to network with fashion photographers, models, hair stylists and make-up artists for runway shows and organized photo shoots involving my designs.
Model Preferences:

Please note that the preferences listed are for runway and print work.  Also note that I will consider anyone if the overall look is right.

Model Type 1:  Overall, I tend to look for modern pin-up type models with a somewhat curvy-looking figure and a bouncy personality.  Preferably she is around a sewing size 6 (Bust: 34.5", Waist: 25.5", Hips: 35.5"), 19-25y/o, with medium to long blonde or chocolate brown hair and has dramatic eyes.  Think Dita Von Teese, Natalie Dormer or Adriana Lima as they have inspired past lines.

Model Type 2:  To compliment my pinup models, I'm also on the look out for adorable alternative style models with piercings and/or tattoos along with an overall Punk/Goth look and attitude (during the shoot).  Preferably she is around a sewing size 6 (Bust: 34.5", Waist: 25.5", Hips: 35.5"), 19-25y/o, with any color hair and has dramatic eyes.  Think Zui Suicide, Audrey Kitching, Raquel Reed or Mosh.

Model Type 3: For a new project I'm working on, I'm looking for models that can be styled as Georgian era women who possess natural grace and poise.  Preferably she is around a sewing size 6 (Bust: 34.5", Waist: 25.5", Hips: 35.5"), 19-25y/o, with medium to long blonde, chocolate or ginger colored hair and has dramatic eyes.  Think Gemma Ward and Coco Rocha.

Model Type 4: In search of the nation's most stunning plus size models!  If you meet any of the general looks listed above, but happen to be curvier, please message me for portfolio review!

Thank you for your interest!

I try to work with models who meet the industry standard of 5'8"-6'3" tall.  However I'm always willing to make exceptions if the overall look is right and the project allows for flexibility on height.
