ABOUT

Sarah Bonett began her career in 1999, when she was accepted into the prestigious Fashion Design Studio at East Sydney TAFE, undertaking and completing the Advanced Diploma of Fashion Design. Whilst still at college, she worked with some of Australia's notable designers Morrissey, Colette Dinnigan, and Akira Isogawa, and assisted at fashion PR agency’s in her spare time. Whilst Sarah enjoyed garment construction and producing a design from sketch to final sample, her passion was in conceptualising a creative vision and bringing the finished garments to life through pictures. During her final year at Fashion College, she  began an internship at Cosmopolitan, and volunteered with different fashion magazine’s in her spare time. Upon graduation from East Sydney in 2003, Sarah became employed full-time at Cosmopolitan, working her way up the ranks over 8 years, and working under three different Editors; Mia Freedman, Sarah Wilson and Bronwyn McCahon. She resigned in December 2010 to pursue freelance styling opportunities.  

As a freelance fashion stylist, Sarah has worked on many editorials and advertising briefs photographed by some of Australia’s top photographers. She has had the experience of shooting multiple stories in locations like the Gold Coast, Biarritz and San Sebastian, LA, Palm Springs, and Fiji, where she secured trip sponsors, and fully produced each shoot. The clients she has styled for has included L’Oreal, Redken, Crystelle, Maybelline New York, Who magazine, Harpers Bazaar, CLEO, Grazia, Lee Denim, Thomas Sabo, Speedo, Westfield, Austereo, Toyota,  Tony Bianco shoes, Jeanswest, Ipoh, Sunday Life, Van Heusen and Lend Lease. Agencies she has worked with are Collider, Studio Woo, M+C Saatchi, DDB Shop, ThinkGirl, Maud,  HM Communications and Cummings Agency. Her most recent work has involved mainly advertising campaign work, brand catalogues, and product styling.

Sarah's decision to move into Interiors came about after years of interest in residential styling and design, coupled with the ‘right time in life’ for a career merger. She recently graduated from the CATC Design School with a Diploma of Interior Design.  Sarah is now enjoying fusing her fashion experience with the new interior ideas. Her style is relaxed, polished, and minimalist with a preference for honest materials, natural light, clean colour palettes  and with feminine trims.

Sarah’s keen eye for colour, and passion for texture, combined with her awareness of International trends allows her to work together even the most unlikely combinations. Her studies’ in design and colour theory, coupled with the experience in designing and styling using products at all ends of the market have made her one of the industry’s most capable Designer / Stylists' with the broadest set of talents.

Sarah is a mama to one little girl, with another baby on the way. She currently resides in Sydney with her Husband, Daughter and Maltese x Poodle.
