Sarah Sokol Millinery

ABOUT SARAH

Sarah Sokol received her BFA in Interior Design at Pratt Institute and spent three years designing commercial kitchens for clients like Alex Stupak, the Meatball Shop and Andre Balasz. However, 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.

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.”

“I went to a bookstore to browse and came across a book called Couture Hats. The second I opened the book I knew this is what I was meant to do. I fell in love with the imagination of the best couture milliners in the world. Every page I flipped through made me see clearer and clearer that this is what I need to do.” -Sarah Sokol

She has also studied millinery abroad in England under Ani Townsend (Milliner’s Guild, Bristol), from whom she learned to make a variety of new hat styles and work in new materials.
