Sarah Silverman from East Hampton (US) is my age (no – seriously) and in the short space of just over a month, has gotten her very own label well and truly off the ground (every little girl’s dream!). With her youthful and flirty approach to her fabrics and a little Juliet Capulet, I think Sarah and her label, Sarah Leora, is well on her way to bringing back the carefree femininity that floated down runways before Freja’s androgyny came about. I asked Sarah to share with you guys some of the key points in her work and where she’s headed. Keep ears open for this super sweet name, ladies and gentlemen:
I launched my clothing line, Sarah Leora on September 19th 2010. I’m still in high school but I’m totally ready for the fashion world! I haven’t been to design school but maybe that allows me to think outside the box rather than going along with the rules. This is my first collection and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do.
Sarah Leora is all about being feminine and girly at the same time. I think there’s too many tomboy imagery in today’s fashion. I’d like to bring back the feeling of femininity.
For my first collection I was inspired by iconic french actresses like Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve. I was also inspired by this French movie with Catherine Deneuve, Le Parapluies De Cherbourg, it’s filled with beautiful colors!
I see myself living in New York City or maybe Paris. I’ll probably be in my third year of college and very stressed! My clothing line will probably grow and big department stores will start carrying my clothing. That will be amazing!
I think Bloggers have helped the fashion community in a tremendous way. It’s easier to learn about new things recognize new people
Thanks Sarah! Definitely one to watch. Also check out this video for Sarah’s first collection that I find super cute :)
On a side note, I am fantastically in love with that first Princess Dress! So old world, but fun.

P.S. Tomorrow will be the unveiling of the first of a series of super exciting events. The second being me finishing exams forever on Wednesday. :)
