ABOUT

Sarah Bonett's career in Design began 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 fashion 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 bringing the finished garments to life through pictures and creative concepts. During her final year at Fashion College, she volunteered with manyh magazines before beginning an internship at Cosmopolitan magazine. Upon graduation from East Sydney in 2003, Sarah became employed full-time at Cosmopolitan, working there for 8 1/2 years, and working under three different Editors; Mia Freedman, Sarah Wilson and Bronwyn McCahon. She resigned in December 2010 to explore different creative markets and to pursue freelance styling opportunities.
