“The greatest fashion faux pas is looking in the mirror and seeing someone else.”

— Iris Apfel

About

This year marks my sweet 16th year working in the various aspects of the multi-faceted fashion industry. While I have worked for many recognized designers and fashion publications, I continue to come back to my passion for personal styling. I began my career interning as a writer and stylist with former fashion editor, Amy Spindler and former Fashion Director, Anne Christensen. My experience at the New York Times Fashion Magazine (Fashion Of The Times) kick-started my love affair, passion, and dedication to a lifelong career in the fashion world.

I have worked in fashion editorial on and off, writing, and styling models and celebrities for publications such as The New York Times, WWD and Salon News, V Magazine, and Style.com, (among many more), but after working for four years as a personal shopper for Bloomingdales and Henri Bendel, I realized that my true passion lies with real women on the sidewalks, not models on the pages of magazines. Wanting to fulfill my clients’ needs from a 360 degree approach, in 2009, I made the decision to branch out on my own – thus, the birth of StylishSarah – my own personal styling and fashion consultancy.

I’ve been lucky enough to work in house with designers like Zac Posen and with renowned editors such as Dirk Standon of Style.com, Sophia Chabbot and Arthur Friedman of WWD, and photographer Bill Cunningham. I am a proud member of both The Couture Council of the Museum at FIT and All Walks Beyond the Catwalk. You can also find me on the Fashion Police page in UsWeekly magazine. These valuable experiences allowed me to cultivate the comprehensive skill set that I now apply to personal styling.
