Originally from the city of Shenzhen in China, Sarah moved to New Zealand to study and graduated from Whitirea Polytechnic with a NZDB in Marketing. After graduating, Sarah wanted to follow her passion and interest in clothing and fashion design and she knew then that she wanted to enroll in a course that would help her own her own fashion based business. After some research, she decided to take up the free trial offered at DAS Training and fell in love with the garment construction process, then went on to enroll in the S.I.T Zero Fees Design and Pattern Making course that was offered by DAS.
These courses have allowed Sarah to enter many competitions and fashion shows including the Miss World (NZ) pageant for 2014.
“My inspiration and motivation comes from the personal satisfaction I get, by enhancing the human form through fashion.”
Sarah’s next step will see her enroll in the SIT Bachelor of Fashion in Invercargill.
