Sarah Kate Byrne has established herself as a hugely in demand stylist specialising in occasion wear, especially around key horse-racing events such as Royal Ascot as well as events that comprise "the season". One of her high profile clients, Francesca Cumani of ITV Racing is regularly cited as a style icon off the back of the looks Sarah creates for her. Her client base tends to be HNW individuals as well as corporate entities such as The Jockey Club who come to her for her expertise and understanding of what works for quintessential British social events. An expert in sourcing one-of-a-kind pieces and coordinating unique looks, she teams the contemporary with the classic seamlessly.
Sarah is a champion of small boutiques & emerging talents within the millinery sphere. Recognising there was a gap in the market for an event dedicated to women’s occasion wear, Sarah established “Maison de Saison” - a curated luxury womenswear pop-up devoted to the classic British season. This specialised shopping destination features an edit of fashion, millinery & accessory brands supporting her design contacts & offering a space for clients to get race, polo or wedding ready.
Sarah mixes contemporary sustainable fashion with vintage & charity shop finds for her editorial, commerical & private client work. Collaborations with Georgia Toffolo, Vogue Williams & Francesca Cumani have changed how preloved, secondhand & ethical fashion is viewed.
She also acts as a brand ambassador for a select number of luxury lifestyle businesses ensuring the right fit for her international client database when their needs go beyond her expertise.
She works primarily in London but is willing to travel.
