Design Star

Ever since the first Sarah Janks gown came through our doors I've been in love. The craftsmanship and detailing is simply exquisite. Sarah is excited to announce the opening of her flagship studio in Sydney's North Shore, introducing her debut Tempus collection. Reinterpretating classic shapes with a modern slant, Sarah employs traditional techniques with impeccable fit and attention to detail. The dichotomy of fitted versus fluid is underlined by second skin bodices accompanied by ball gown or curvaceous hourglass skirts. Slinky bias cut dresses in chiffons, liquid satins and morocains balance the tailored pieces in the collection. The intricate embellishments and fabric manipulations are inspired by pressed flowers, old hand written love notes hidden in the folds of the skirt, small tokens of affection and a nostalgia of an era where romance blossomed into love.

Sarah has come a long way from leaving South Africa where she was born and raised to landing in London with just 300 pounds. Sarah found her first job at Kashkets, who were responsible for the outfits worn by Prince William, Prince Harry and the page boys at the recent Royal wedding of Will & Kate. Twelve years on and after almost a decade working for incredible designers such as Roland Mouret, Jonathan Saunders and Jenny Packam, Sarah moved to Australia and this week opened the doors to her Neutral Bay Studio.

Be sure to visit Sarah's studio at Shop 9, 7 Waters Road, Neutral Bay, Sydney 2089. Bridal and gown consultations are by appointment. Contact details can be found at www.sarahjanks.com.
