Project Ethos: Intern Review

Designer: Sarah Seven

As one of Project Ethos's newest interns, I am so excited to have the opportunity to
research up and coming artists in the arenas of art, music and fashion. I have a love
for all things flirty and flowy with an edge, so when I stumbled upon Sarah Seven on
Etsy awhile ago, it was love at first sight.

Sarah Seven’s designs will sweep you off your feet in a beautifully draped whirlwind
of romance with an edge. The Portland-based designer has special occasion, ready
to wear and bridal collections.

Her dresses show careful attention to detail, often with pleating at the bust that
drapes down across the sides or front. The sweetheart necklines and silk fabrics
provide a whimsical aspect to her designs. Asymmetrical draping and modern belts
boost Sarah Seven past just another pretty dress, giving her designs a breath of fresh

Sarah Seven’s 2012 Spring collection doesn’t disappoint, delivering gorgeous
silhouettes with close attention to detail, especially in the bust area. Her dresses
often have a bustier built in, which is perfect because a lot of the dresses have a low
cut neckline. The sweetheart cut lends a classical, attractive shape, but the plunge
adds some sexy to the sweet.

Not only are her designs romantic with a modern edge, Sarah Seven is an independent designer who already knows the importance of giving back. For every sale she makes, she gives 5% to charity (3% to Compassion and 2% to International Justice Mission). She also embraces the green lifestyle, creating a lot of her designs out of natural fabrics.

Sarah Seven definitely fits the bill for an emerging artist with loads of talent,
just what Project Ethos looks for. Like so many other up and coming designers
Project Ethos follows, her clothing expresses a distinct culture - one that embraces
femininity, but incorporates the desire for individuality.
