Senior fashion design student Sara Hinkle has never disappointed to impress. She was awarded the Illustration Merit Scholarship as a Sophomore, and also has the opportunity to intern with nationally-known and Nashville-based bridal designer Olia Zavozina. Sara was also the recipient for the Design Achievement Award last May for her Junior collection Contrast.
Her style philosophy is focused on making the wearer feel powerful.
“Fashion is creating garments that accentuate women’s beauty and make them feel confident about who they are,” she says. The inspiration for her collection was The Sphere, a sculpture in New York City’s Battery Park. “It is a beautiful piece of work before and after the tragedy of 9/11. There are different angles and shapes throughout the piece, and I wanted to focus on the angles and shapes that make up the body.”
O’More is looking forward to seeing Sara advance her skill and talent during her Senior year. Great things to come.
