A Stylish Bird • Sarah

Thursday, February 4, 2010

While riding the complementary shuttle bus between the Canali and Versace men's' shows, I had the pleasure of chatting with Sarah and her friends, and listening to their very thoughtful opinions about designers like Marc Jacobs and Alber Elbaz (Sarah respects Elbaz for his directness and adores his kindness.)

From our conversation, I gathered that Sarah is a part of the current generation of multitaskers (smitten with multitaskers this week) who, by their hands-on-approach, are taking the fashion industry by storm. They have boundless energy, and are an inspiration for me when I am exhausted and my imagination taxed.

Now based in Paris, Sarah hails from South Korea and spent her childhood in the US, UK, and are ready u ready for this, Namibia! Even though she just recently finished her studies at Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, she has already done design work for Balenciaga and Lanvin and has freelanced as a stylist. In addition to these impressive accomplishments, she also finds the time to design gorgeous jewelry. Like the necklace pictured above, she says that her creations tend to have "a very earthy, ethnic feel as well as very contrasting digital and geometric textures."

With all these accomplishments under her Lanvin belt, she now has her sights set on conquering the Magazine world! Knock 'em dead darling! Use those beautiful YSL mittens!
