Me and my girl. It’s so cool and exciting to be in the opening page of Mom Crush.

(1) Hanh and her girls wear colorful collections of bracelets. Chloe designed Hanh’s heart-shaped ring. (2) Hanh and her husband purchased the Murano glass chandelier in Venice. “We went back and forth so many times to the store to see it. It was before we actually had a house.” (3) Hanh’s older brother made the “21”print as a wedding gift for Hanh and her husband. (4) Emma and Chloe love creating fashion sketches and art projects. (5) Hanh pairs t-shirts from Madewell with heirloom pieces like her Balenciaga vest. (6) Hanh keeps provisions for her weekly Saturday family feasts at the ready.

Mom Crush: Four Women Changing Dallas

They do interesting work, possess serious style, and are changing our city. And they just so happen to be moms. We took a peek inside their worlds to see how they do it. 

MOM CRUSH NO. 1 Hanh Merriman

New York Times street style photographer Bill Cunningham is selective about the people he snaps. But on a trip to Fashion Week this year, Hanh Merriman made the cut.  Cunningham photographed her wearing a mix of Jean Paul Gaultier, Rick Owens, and Comme des Garçons. The famously circumspect photographer even threw in a compliment.

That Hanh considers this “a moment I will adore forever” underscores a reverence for fashion that goes back to her childhood in rural Vietnam, when her reward for perfect grades was a trip to the city to see the latest clothes. Suffice it to say, she studied relentlessly.

In 1994, Hanh moved to Dallas to reunite with her family and study business management. She also took a job at a salon. There, a client introduced her to, winemaker Mike Merriman, and after two years of his mannered persistence, Hanh agreed to a lunch date. They married in 2000, and have two daughters, 8-year-old Chloe and 10-year-old Emma.

Both girls possess their mother’s eye for fashion, mixing styles and sketching outfits they’d someday like to create. On mother/daughter shopping pilgrimages Hanh encourages them to “buy only what you really love, don’t settle for something you just like, no matter the price.” When Hanh isn’t talking fashion, she’s playing badminton with the girls (their favorite pastime) or cooking weekly Saturday feasts for her extended family of more than 20. She also plans learning trips for the family, seeing “vacation as a time for the girls to get excited about new things.” They’ve made pasta in Venice, taken acting classes in New York, and watched whales in Vancouver.

Three years ago, Hanh launched her blog, Life in Travel, to chronicle her dual passions. Posts featuring her artful ensembles are shown alongside images of the family hiking and picking cherries in Portland. In fashion and life, she says, “You have to play and be adventurous, but not take it too seriously. Fashion is fun, but family is what’s really important.”
