Sarah-Louise grew up in France, in a small town in the region of Alsace, with a British mother and a French father. The town was surrounded by beautiful vineyards. Sarah-Louise graduated from the European School in Strasbourg with a European Baccalaureate. At the age of 18 she made the bold move to relocate to London, to undertake a Foundation year in Art and Design.
She then followed this by taking a BA (Hons) in Fashion Design with Business studies at the University of Brighton, graduating in June 2020, and currently based in Portugal growing SLK Designs.
SLK has two key areas of the business. Firstly, Sarah-Louise will continue to design bespoke evening wear and show pieces. Secondly, a diffusion line has been created featuring more wearable garments and accessories. To try and reduce waste, the accessories in the diffusion line are made from leftover fabrics from her main collections.
SLK Designs aims to create show pieces that make the wearer feel empowered, confident and special. Her recent collection “This, Madame, is Versailles” is a high impact Couture luxury evening womenswear collection. SLK explores conceptual and architectural silhouettes, an avant-garde take on classic Haute Couture.
She uses innovative fabrics with technical craftsmanship features. Sarah-Louise sees her dresses as wearable art. Bold, dramatic, modern and colourful.
They suit the fashion consumer who is playful yet rebellious.
