Beginning sewing at young age, with her mum teaching her, led Sarah to study Fashion & Textile Design in Colaiste Ide. She went onto IADT Dun Laoghaire and developed her own fabric medium whilst receiving a BA in Visual Arts Practice Sculpture.
Sarah began her own Millinery Design company in 2016 called Saraden Designs Millinery Atelier. Here she uses her own fabric made in house, called Saraden Fabric, to create millinery designs described as pieces of wearable art. Saraden Designs is a slow fashion brand which prides itself on not wasting any fabrics as cut offs are reworked into new creations.
Sarah has been on the runways of London Fashion Week, London Hat Week, Belfast Fashion Week, Leicester Fashion Week, Fashion Revolutions Sustainable Fashion Show and has exhibited pieces in London, Dorset, Birmingham, The Netherlands, Dublin and Palma. She’s also had her work featured in various publications throughout Europe. She has won a number of awards : Milliner of the Year 2019 in The Cointreau HiStyle Awards, Creative Professional in the Network Ireland Meath Awards 2021, Event Expert in the Irish Micro Business Awards 2021, Emerging Business in The Meath Business & Tourism Awards 2021, Milliner of the Year in the HiStyle Awards 2021 and Event Expert overall winner in the Irish & UK Micros Business Awards 2022.
