Sarah Sokol, inspired by the creativity of the Burning Man Community, Sarah set out to strike a balance between her lifelong love of fashion with her training in design.
Sarah Sokol’s latest work can be found in Cardi B’s “Money” Music Video.
The Ivy Showroom, located in Atlanta, has a range of Sarah Sokol originals, that have been rented out to celebrities, such as Alexis Skyy, Phaedra, Jojo Zarur, and more.
When Sarah went to Burning Man for the first time, she discovered the limitlessness of the imagination and a desire to create quality headpieces which expressed her inner self as well. Having been further inspired by Anya Caliendo’s work, Sarah went to study under the milliner in her Advanced Couture Millinery course. There, she learned detailed techniques of couture millinery; techniques she practices today in her studio. Taking two dimensional materials and creating a sculptural statement to be worn on top of a human head became the most amazing challenge to Sarah — both structurally and creatively.
“I had this passion flowing through me and wasn't sure what to do with it."
Sarah Sokol currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, in the neighborhood where she was born and raised, where she owns and operates Sarah Sokol Millinery, Inc.
