Kate Her­sch’s Au­gust Mor­gan (au­gust­mor­gan.com) boasts an in­ge­niously sim­ple charm. With her pop­u­lar em­broi­dered cock­tail nap­kins sport­ing whim­si­cal pat­terns—like a duck in wellies with the cap­tion “sloshed”— she cre­ates a clever bal­ance of so­phis­ti­ca­tion and charm­ing wit. Her­sch started col­lect­ing needle­point pil­lows more than 10 years ago and turned ob­ses­sion into oc­cu­pa­tion when she be­gan de­sign­ing nap­kins and glass­ware, which you can find at Neiman Mar­cus. In May, she launched her first cloth­ing col­lec­tion of col­or­ful and com­fort­able shirt­dresses, avail­able at Ade­lante and Ju­lian Gold. “I want to de­sign for all ages,” says Her­sch. “Ev­ery­one needs some­thing you can throw on and not have to worry about.”

“Peo­ple want a sim­ple, clas­sic look that they can in­ter­pret into their own style.”
