Sharing Closets / Sharing Style with Sarah

May 13th, 2012

Meet Sarah LaFleur, the brains behind Mémé LAFLEUR- a womenswear line for stylish ladies in the corporate sector. Sarah and I met about five months ago through a mutual friend to discuss branding and design, and it’s been an absolute pleasure getting to know her. Her mother is Japanese and her father is American and as you can imagine, she’s been heavily influenced by her mother’s style.

In her own words…

The trend that repeats itself, if it is a trend at all, is comfort, represented by our favorite, big, chunky sweaters.   I’m pretty sure my mom still has this white one. Both she and I worked long hours in a corporate environment and wore wool suits, button-ups and tights all day. She would jump into her over-sized sweaters and yoga pants (or “leggings” as she’d say) as soon as she got home and lounge around the house in those until she went to bed. 35 years later, I do exactly the same.

    I love this – I’m the same way, even though I do work in a casual environment. Looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

    Hello Shayna,

    I’m so thrilled to find out that you put up my and Sarah’s photos with your warm and kind comment. I must say today is my best Mother’s Day !

    I love fashion as I believe it’s like having attractive flower at home for yourself and for others to enjoy. People often say it’s absurd to spend time and money for fashion and thoese who pay attention to fashion is not intelligent. I disagree.

    I think fashion is the easiest way to express your artistic ideas. One must be always creative but I enjoy it.

    Wishing you all the best!

    Keiko,

    Thank you for writing- I couldn’t agree more. Fashion is reflective of the period & culture and when the wearer has confidence, any and all frivolity drips away.

    So happy you had a nice Mother’s Day!
