Since graduating and completing her MA with a Distinction in Fashion Design from Cambridge School of Art in 2015, Sarah has worked for independent luxury lingerie brand Ayten Gasson, set up her own directional lingerie label and, in her previous lecturing role, provided design and technical expertise to Fashion Contour students at London College of Fashion. Returning to Cambridge School of Art to teach on the BA (Hons) Fashion Design course, Sarah is actively seeking both multi- and inter-disciplinary opportunities to collaborate, and therefore critically investigate, the concept of lingerie in the digital world.
