After initially studying at Central Saint Martins (CSM) Sarah Ahn went on to complete BA (Hons) Cordwainers footwear: Product Design and Innovation at the London College of Fashion. We got the low down on industry standards, how she found the course and most importantly her final project.

Influenced by symbols driven by her interest in the writings of Dan Brown, Sarah produced two luxury yet wearable shoes.


Design was key for her project and it was great to get the opportunity to delve into her sketch book. The evolution of her designs were intricately documented. An a culmination of her ideas went into creating articles in indesign. Her crisp clean luxe collection was modelled on the theme ‘Alter Ego’. Light vs Dark, Good vs Evil. Wedges and flats brought versatility and beautiful leather brought high quality.

With one of her creations previously snapped up by Irregular Choice and seen worn by celebrities including Whoopi Goldberg , were sure we’ll be sing more of Sarah work very soon.
