David Meister (born February 23, 1962[1]) is an American fashion designer known for his women’s wear. As a young child in Cincinnati, David was heavily influenced by style-conscious TV shows such as Sonny & Cher, which fueled his aspiration of becoming a fashion designer.[2]

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Meister graduated from La Salle High School (Cincinnati, Ohio) in 1980. He then earned a degree in fashion design from The University of Cincinnati College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning in 1985. After graduation, he moved to New York City and secured a position at Danskin.[3]

In November 1998, Meister joined forces with a Californian division of Kellwood Company, to create a signature evening collection.[4] Five months later, he premiered his first fall line, a compilation of modern and elegant eveningwear.[4]

In August 2009, Meister launched his Signature collection exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman.[5]

He launched his exclusive Bridal Collection with Designer Bride in 2010 consisting of twelve styles available at bridal boutiques nationwide.[6][7]

His dresses, evening wear and couture red carpet designs have been worn by socialites and celebrities.[4] Diane Lane chose Meister for the 2009 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.[8] Meister is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.[9] His label can be found at venues such as Neiman Marcus,[10] Bloomingdale's and Saks Fifth Avenue.[11]
