One to watch out for is the designer Sara Shepherd. Yes, she is here in San Francisco, but hails from England. Not only is she a full-time fashion professor at the Academy of Art, but she is an incredibly talented designer and tailor. She is dedicated to fit, style and cut.
After getting studying design foundations at the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London, she went on to get her degree in design at the Academy of Art here in San Francisco. Simon Ungless is in charge of the program and her mentor. Simon attended Central St Martins with Alexander McQueen and tutored Sarah Burton.
You can look at each garment and see her attention to detail including: French seams, draping and textiles chosen for the individual silhouette.
Her Fall 2012 collection is simply stellar. It is sophisticated urban chic. Seasonless and Ageless. Each piece is an essential item to a woman’s wardrobe and can mix with other looks.
SURPRISE- take a look at the back at all the incredible detail in that delicious leather vest. This look is strong, yet fluid. Projecting her target woman into the real world.
Sara’s aesthetic is clean, modern, simple yet tons of attention to detail.
To put on one of her garments is the only way to understand what fit and why I call her a master tailor.
Her line is one where a woman can actually build a wardrobe. Each season she can invest in a few garments and build upon the previous season.
Look at the lines, the cut of the black jacket below. Absolute perfection and the ultimate wardrobe must-have.
And yes, she loves to incorporate femininity along with strong tailoring within each look.
I asked Sara what she thought her brand was all about and she answered: ” Classic British tailoring combined with American ease and functionality.”
To know her as a friend is wonderful, she is humble about her craft and just has the desire to create beautiful garments. To wear one of her items is a treat. Get to know her as a designer and start collecting her pieces, as her future is about to explode on the fashion horizon.
Price ranges $250.00 and up. Available in San Francisco at MAC boutiques.
