last september, i dared myself to do something i never thought i would do:
attend a few boston fashion week events, all by my lonesome.
luckily, i met up with some wonderful bloggers and also had the
chance to meet some amazing designers. one of which was the
very talented & lovely sara marhamo.
i recently got to ask the recent MassArt grad a few questions about her style
and what inspired her latest collection. here is what she had to say:
"my style is all about controlled chaos and that influences all of my designs.
deliberate visual excess. i really have a great appreciation for a sense of
craftsmanship & quality in clothing. i learned to sew when i was 14 by a
woman who was obsessed with building the perfect garment, and i think that
definitely influenced the way i create things today. my work is about knowing how
things are supposed to be put together and mixing it up a bit. i also have an
insane love of color. the girl in the little black dress will always look chic
at a party, but everyone will remember the girl in purple or red!"
if you are in boston (& intrigued!), check out ms. marhamo's designs in person
tomorrow night at the liberty hotel's "fashionably late" event!!
