Conversation with Sarah Timm

This was Sarah’s second time entering the Her Universe Fashion Show as a designer. Her cool-as-a-cucumber demeanor backstage shows how familiar and confident she has become just after her initial participation in 2018. For this year’s fashion show, her design was inspired by TV show Veronica Mars and modeled by Keetin Marchi.

Sarah talks about about the biggest different between her first fashion show and her second go-around and what she would do differently the next time she enters.
A huge thank you to Sarah for being a part of this episode. You can follow her on Instagram at @breathcue to see what she’s up to next.
