Introducing the beautiful and ever talented Sarah Stuart, friend and muse of Carlson. Sarah is Head Fashion Stylist at Warner Bros, Discovery, Newshub and Prime News, is also an Ambassador for New Zealand Fashion Week and much more. 

Sarah, has styled/collaborated with Carlson for numerous projects including fashion shows and photoshoots, custom designed outfits for Aotearoa Celebrities  such as Samantha Hayes, Kanoa Lloyd, Melissa Davies. 

 "Someone who absolutely sparks joy for me and my staff is stylist Sarah Stuart. We met when Sarah had returned from London in 2016, Sarah had been appointed stylist for Media Works. She came in to the workroom on a recommendation from the great Anna Caselberg. That initial meeting led to a wonderful, creative partnership that is so easy. I have the utmost admiration for her laser sharp focus, her playful approach to colour and pattern, and always her incredible eye. Over the years we have collaborated on many designs and have become the firmest of friends."

Sarah is an inspiration and truly a muse to us - Tanya

 It was a natural progression to start styling our runway shows, including our 20th year anniversary off site NZFW show
