Designers to watch - Sarah Aphrodite
Sarah Aphrodite is Netherlands born and Massachusetts based. She graduated from the Arnhem Academy for Art & Fashion in the Netherlands. In 2006 she moved to New York City where she taught fashion at Parsons the new school for design and she worked for Susan Cianciolo. She then built her own brand in 2008 .
Her originality and outlook on fashion is what really sets her apart. She makes one of a kind hand made pieces using fabrics that are handpicked from all over the world and recycles existing & antique goods mixed with new materials. Some of her latest designs include a pleated skirt made to look like a belt, a bag made out of bangles and my favorite is her heart cut out t-shirt. The brand is working towards becoming a vegan brand and using organic fabrics as well.
I love the this brand because the pieces are truly amazing and the fact that everything is unique & made in small quantities make it even more special you get a sense of exclusivity so much so that it is no surprise that Sarah has caught the eye of several celebrities. Her creativity and her love for her craft shows in the clothes and accessories that she creates. In fashion its not always about being different but being different and making it look good! Sarah Aphrodites's clothes are available on her site at Sarahaphrodite.com.
