QO: Tell us a little bit about yourself, both professionally and personally.
Mérida Miller: I’m originally from the East coast of the United States (FL, VA, MD). My parents were really resourceful and loved to work with their hands. I started sewing at 14 and ultimately studied fashion design in college. In 2017, while working with Under Armour, I moved to Amsterdam to design apparel within the Innovation Team.
I love being active, which is perfect in a city like Amsterdam, and love exploring this city via bike and foot with my fiancé Elliot. And baking – I love baking and decorating cakes. And not to toot my own horn, but I’m pretty good and tend to use that time to meditate. Oh – and I love my cat.
