Sarah-Jane Clarke (AM) is an Australian entrepreneur, fashion designer and wellness and mindset coach . Since co-founding and helming the internationally acclaimed denim and ready-to-wear fashion house, sass & bide, Clarke has shifted her focus to trans-seasonal resort pieces for her eponymous line, SARAH-JANE CLARKE, launched during the 2018 European summer.
During her three-year sabbatical after the 2014 sale of sass & bide, Clarke immersed herself in a period of extensive personal exploration – journeying across the world in search of inspiration and understanding. It was here that two fundamental principles emerged: a profound love and respect for the natural world, and an increased appreciation for the dedicated craftsmanship employed in quality artisanal products (also derivedfrom an intrinsic relationship with nature). These elements combined conjured avision for a spirited collection of timeless travel-wear essentials, made from the finest materials.
The result is a series of luxurious capsule collections, imbued with an elegance undefined by time. A label that treasures authenticity– with its considered footprint and reflection of a more graceful pace of life. SARAH-JANE CLARKE garments are crafted with genuine love, where the processitself is the creative muse.
Through the brand’s once-yearly capsules, SARAH-JANE CLARKE remains committed to honouring the best of the world around us; offering pieces that celebrate and promote simplicity, quality and a playfulness that defines both the respite and the vitality we seek from travel explorations beyond our everyday lives.
