About Sarah Flint
Creative Director Sarah Flint launched her first collection in the Fall of 2013 at the age of 25. Prior to that, she spent many years determined to learn as much as she could about every aspect of the industry. She moved to New York to study design at Parsons, and graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After graduation, Sarah moved to Milan to learn pattern making and the technical aspects of handmade shoe manufacturing at Ars Sutoria.
This foundation has helped Sarah shape the brand and continues to influence all of her design decisions. The Italian factories themselves are a huge source of inspiration to Sarah. The passion put into each shoe by these third and fourth-generation cobblers is unparalleled. Sarah takes great pride in the details of her designs ensuring that they enhance the shoes rather than provide surface ornamentation. Sarah Flint shoes are easily recognizable for their signature origami used throughout the collections where supple leather is folded and layered to create a ripple effect. The collection focuses on feminine and delicate designs, taking a page from icons like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly who always looked sophisticated and sexy in an effortless way - something Sarah believes all women aspire to.
The Sarah Flint brand believes that sensuality lies in simplicity, that sophistication is achieved through subtlety and attention to detail. When a woman slips into a pair from the collection, she feels chic, empowered, and sexy.
Recently named a member of the CFDA, Sarah was touted by Footwear News in 2015 as ‘One to Watch’ in a cover story amongst the best new talent in the footwear industry. Amal Clooney, Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, Jessica Alba, and Kate Hudson have shown their devotion to the collection; wearing their Sarah Flint designs time and again. Sarah Flint has also become a fast favorite among some of the most influential international style bloggers in the world and key press outlets such as The New York Times, InStyle, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and W.
The Sarah Flint Collection is carried at select luxury retailers worldwide including Barneys, Bloomingdales, Shopbop, Moda Operandi, Barneys Japan, TheSeptember, and on SarahFlint.com.
