Here at Verlon Ilene we value our "Texan" roots.
Meagan Woodall is the owner and creative director for Verlon Ilene.
Verlon Ilene, was Meagan's great grandmother and whom the lovely bridal brand is named after.
Verlon was a strong East Texas southern woman who sewed, baked, gardened, coached, taught, and always stayed active in her community and church. So much of Verlon inspires Meagan in the beautiful gowns she creates every day.
Meagan Woodall has had a long-term love for bridal and brought Verlon Ilene to life in 2017.
Growing up in a small Texas town south of Fort Worth, Meagan has paved her way through the fashion industry.
As a young girl, she was constantly sketching dresses and buying thrift store clothing to cut up and remake into something unique and beautiful. Meagan started making that dream into a reality and graduated from the University of North Texas with her BFA in Fashion Design. She then started gaining her love for custom fit and high couture sewing by working as a intern in school. Meagan worked beside her mentor and friend Lisa Dobson, by being a seamstress for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Working in this role started her love for tedious detail sewing and perfect craftsmanship. She then decided to take on the bridal world and is now making authentic handmade gowns for brides all over Texas. While in the fashion industry she has also worked for Taylor Lane Design, JC Penny Headquarters, and a soft home bedding company.
Meagan Woodall is a fairy god mother in her at home studio and is inspired by flowers, simplicity, and vintage. She has three precious fur babies who rule her world: Lady, Lucy, and Leroy. Meagan is also currently engaged to the love of her life Eric Tate. She enjoys reading anything related to fashion history and loves being in the presence of her family.
