Presenting her first collection for Spring 2012, designer Sarah Nami Ahn’s NAMI collection expresses the young designer’s diverse past. A self proclaimed army brat, Sarah Ahn had already moved 22 times before her 18th birthday and that exposure to different worlds and cultures has strongly influenced her design.
Before pursuing a career in Fashion, Sarah Ahn earned a BS, MS & PHD in the Neurosciences from UCLA, definitely not the typical education of a designer. Only 6 months out of fashion school, she won a design competition and her dress design was sold as part of the Spring 2011 Collection of Laundry by Shelli Segal.
The early success prodded Sarah to launch her own collection NAMI which has been met with glowing reviews. Already in stores for Spring 2012, NAMI just presented its first Fall Collection in Los Angeles, proving that Sarah is not just a one hit wonder!
