As a former commercial interior designer, Atlanta’s Ellen Meier loved creating beautiful spaces and colorful interiors. But several years ago, the Emory University grad shifted her design focus.

With the help of one seamstress in Roswell, Meier decided to design, make and sell a unique, eco-friendly line of children’s clothes. In 2010, she started Emme boucou from her Druid Hills home. Using discontinued fabrics, new remnants and unused vintage textiles, the clothes have a fun, modern edge.

To reach fashion-minded families, Meier sold her children’s clothes sizes 0-8 at trunk shows. Then she tried selective holiday markets and weekend festivals. In April, she landed a spot at The Beehive in Atlanta’s Edgewood retail district.

The colorful, A-line dresses ($45 to $55) are top sellers. So are the kimono tops ($45 to $55) and the matching booty diaper shorts ($28). Other favorites include appliqué shirts ($15 to $22) with coordinating shorts ($15 to $30). New for fall: vintage-style coats and teepee tents.

To purchase, visit The Beehive, 1250 Caroline St., C-120, Atlanta, or http://thebeehiveatl.com/collections/emm-e-boucou. For more about Meier, check www.emmeboucou.com
