Saskatchewan-born, Vancouver-based Sara Armstrong has been showing at Vancouver Fashion Week for the past three seasons. I caught up with Armstrong in her studio to take a closer look at the collection and to find out what’s inspiring her these days.
What led you to become a fashion designer? Growing up I always wanted to be an artist, a painter. I did my first degrees in sculpture but when I graduated I realized that public sculpture, which is what I was interested in, is just very long term projects; what I like about creating is the story. I love the process. I feel like fashion to me can be public sculpture but it’s accessible in a different way.
