Anara Original

Always on the prowl for the Unique and Innovative Designers, I was recently connected to Sara Crawford, visionary creator of Anara Original’s House of Design.  At the young age of 12, Sara knew she wanted to be a designer. Inheriting artistic traits of drawing and sewing from her parents, I guess you could say Sara’s dream was Destiny’s Creation in the making!

Inspired by art, Sara considers her collection just that, “Wearable Art” constructed with simplistic design and edgy detail.  Using artistic forms such as airbrushing, free hand drawing and painting while using studded and jeweled detailing Sara’s Unique Designs are oh so Chic, Modern and Trendy!
Allowing herself to never be swayed by the “trends of the season” Sara uses her imagination and creativity to invent her collections! I’m sure you’ll find yourself lusting over Sara’s designs as they are unique and captivating.

Currently working on her Fall collection set to release August 19th, Sara is also working on a line of Fashionable Art called AO Deco set to launch September 2nd.  Sara is also partnering on a shoe and phone case project that you can look forward to in the upcoming months as well.
