Tell us about yourself and your personal style…

My style is pretty diverse. I don’t really follow trends, but buy pieces I truly love. You can find me in simple silhouettes that are well cut, or jeans and a loose fitting top, to more structured statement pieces. I am drawn to  bold digital prints and bold colours. And tend to dress down most of my pieces for a pretty relaxed look.

Tell us where you would wear this outfit and why you think it works for you…

I wear this pretty much everywhere – to work, out with friends or meetings. Its super versatile and can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with a leather jacket. These days I tend to wear outfits that are stylish but comfortable.

What I love most about the Sara C tops is that they’re loose, so are not only comfy but super flattering, but are also really versatile and can be worn dressed up or down. As you can also probably tell I love colour, so for me its an easy way to inject some colour into my day whilst still being comfy.

Tell us about Sara C:

Born from the depths of the English winter countryside, my debut collection was inspired by the sheer natural beauty of an untouched England – a picturesque landscape where nature whispers millions of tiny stories to those there to listen.The prints that make up my first collection have all been photographed or hand drawn by me, before being digitally printed onto 100% bamboo silk for a luxuriously soft, high quality finish. Graphic natural shapes are infused with bright washes of colour, reflecting the wild beauty of the English countryside.

I believe in producing my collection in a determinedly low impact way. I have coined the phrase “Bamboo Couture” to describe my creation and production process. Each print is crafted so it works perfectly within the shape of each garment, that way I can decide exactly where each print is placed and how each front and back will match. Each garment is placement printed, and despite spiralling costs each garment is hand cut and sewn in Britain. Sara C only uses organic, natural fibres such as bamboo and peace silk and eco-friendly dyes.
