Kirna Zabete

In 1999 Sarah co-founded Kirna Zabete, the multi-brand luxury fashion store in what was then no mans’ land: Soho, NYC. During her 17 year run at Kirna Zabete, Sarah brought boldface brands such as Alaia, Chloe, Balenciaga, Lanvin and Dior to downtown clientele tired of trekking uptown for their favorite fashion.

Perpetually ahead of trends, Sarah helped launch brands such as Rick Owens, Anthony Vaccarello, Thakoon, Proenza Schouler, Veronica Beard and Rosie Assoulin, being one the first retailers to carry their groundbreaking collections.

During her tenure at Kirna Zabete, Sarah also designed and launched high-profile collections for Target, Nine West, and Gilt.
