If you read last week’s post then you know that many of our August releases were inspired and named after many of you. As promised, here are a few more “behind the name” stories that inspired our Fearless Collection.
Our first story comes from Representative Meagen Dehart-Ames. She wrote in to tell us about her niece, Clover. “Clover was born with Spina Bifida, which has given her many other health issues such as severe scoliosis, Chiari II Malformation, and Hydrocephalus—just to name a few. When Clover was only three months old the shunt placed in her brain failed, resulting in the paralysis on the left side of her face. Through it all Clover hasn’t stopped smiling. She is full of life and never lets her disability get in her way. She is an inspiration to many and brings a smile to anyone’s face that comes in contact with her. She is our ‘lucky clover.”
Our hearts melted upon seeing little Clover’s photo and we loved her nickname, so we just had to have a “lucky clover.”
Our next story comes from a daughter whose mother passed away just last year. Barb Jones had this to say, “My mother, Autumn, loved her Classic Miche Shells. Her favorite was her black and white Hope Shell, which was given to her by my cousin when she was diagnosed with cancer. The Hope Shell was her way of telling the world she was hopeful and that she had a ‘can-do’ attitude.”
Autumn was born in October and loved all things fall and the color green, so when it came to selecting and naming our fall collection there was no doubt that our beautiful teal-green Classic would be named Autumn.
Thank you so much to Clover and Autumn for living such inspired lives and thank you to their families for sharing their stories with us and being a source of inspiration for our fall Fearless Collection!
