This is what the business of fashion looks like: besides fabric, it’s buttons and elastic and zippers and more. Unless we sew our own clothes, these are not things we usually think about.
Unless the zipper sticks or the elastic pinches, we don’t much care about them.
But when you’re designing a garment they become very important, because they literally hold things together. This woman working is Sarah, whom I affectionately call “boss lady.” She has an education that includes the Pratt Institute, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and an MBA from the University of San Francisco.
Sarah is an entrepreneur in the truest sense: she juggles several projects at once and each matters. She draws people into her projects and business and makes connections not just to them but amongst them. She has an eye for both the near and far, the details and the big picture.
The fashion business is a very hard one, there are a million reasons to stay away from it.
One of the reasons to go into it is because you have a real passion that will get you through the hard times. Sarah has that passion, she has a passion not just for the details of designing a garment but for the women who will wear it. And I think you’ll agree, that is a very good thing.
