Sarah is obsessed with FASHION!! saying,

“I live, work and breath fashion.”
“I studied fashion design at uni and have been working in the industry for over 5 years. I currently work for a fashion wholesaler who designs and make clothes for some major retailers. I also work on plus size accounts which is really fun!”


“The thing I love most about fashion is that you can transform yourself into anything you want to be. “


My personal style is a mix of the new and the old. My style is a mixture of 50’s, boho chic and the sleek look of minimalism.”

Best summer fashion tip?

I love summer but fear the whole chaffing issue… my summer tip would be to invest in BB cream! It allows me to wear all those cute summer dresses and skirts without having to worry.

 Do you have a piece of clothing you just can’t part with even though you don’t or can’t use anymore? What is it and why do you love it?
When I was younger I was a dancer and I have a collection of dance costumes that I would never get rid of. Obviously I will never ever wear them again however I could never get rid of them because they bring back so many great memories. In fact, I think they are the source of my absolute love of sequins and anything that glitters
What do you think should be in every ladies wardrobe?

My essential is a really great Leather Jacket. I’ve had mine for over 7 years now and I can’t tell you how many times it has saved my outfit! It’s just so versatile, you can wear it with a cool t-shirt and a pair of jeans and back with a dress or skirt. My only issue is finding one in plus size, I think there needs to be more out in the market.

 Why are you having a stall at A Plus?

Over my time working in the fashion industry I have collected my fair share of clothes! It would be nice to make some room in my wardrobe to buy new ones!


 What are you selling?

I have a good mix of dresses, tops, jackets, pants and skirts in sizes ranging from 16-20. Some of the items are samples that I worked on that never made it into retail stores (so they are one-offs)


Come and raid Sarah’s outfits, THIS SUNDAY!
