After 10 years of theoretical and practical activity in architecture, in 2016 Sarah engaged in a reflection on the uses of accessories during her Master's at Ensav La Cambre. Her first collection, for which she was awarded the Prix Artagon in 2018 and the public prize at the Hyères Festival in 2019, adopts an experimental approach to accessories, inspired by our contemporary behaviors. This project evolved in the Habit Series which proposes a playful gallery of body extensions designed to offer material solutions, both practical and offbeat, to the transportation of objects that accompany us in our daily lives.
While pursuing this personal project, Sarah collaborates as a freelance accessory designer with French houses such as Hermès, Marine Serre, and Patou. The two approaches to accessory design are complementary for Sarah and fuel her creative process.
Sarah Levy's commitment to a sustainable approach is implemented in every aspect of production, respect for manufacturers, upcycling for deadstock materials are her priorities. To do so, Sarah has the support of Maison Delvaux that offers her their leather from the best French tanneries.
