Sariah Park, now based in New York’s Hudson Valley, grew up in Texas with a background in visual arts. Sariah learned to sew and weave from her mother at a very early age. It was the appreciation of craft that inspired her to go on to study fashion at Parsons School of Design in New York and Parsons Paris. While studying in Paris, Sariah apprenticed for Mahlia Kent, the weaving company famous for creating Chanel’s wovens. Sariah’s BFA thesis collection won the prestigious Gold Thimble Award for her silk screened sportswear and hand woven designs. Her thesis collection was bought by Barneys New York directly out of school and catapulted her career into fashion. In addition to working with Barneys, Sariah’s collection has been sold around the world with select retailers like Neiman Marcus, Louis Boston, Creatures of Comfort, Barneys Japan, and United Arrows. Sariah also collaborated with Anthropologie stores to produce a line of her signature printed apparel. Sariah’s work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue.com, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Sariah’s designs have donned the red carpet on the likes of Kerry Washington, featured on the silver screen on Juliette Lewis, and was a favorite among Leighton Meester’s wardrobe on the set of Gossip Girl. In addition to creating her own work and raising a family, Sariah Park enjoys teaching fashion design and textiles as an adjunct professor at her alma mater, helping the next generation of designers get their start.
