Footwear Designer Sarah Flint Showcases Spring; Sets Sights on E-Commerce

Up-and-coming American designer Sarah Flint recently unveiled her spring/summer 2014 shoe collection at New York’s chic Carlyle Hotel. Drawing inspiration from feminine 1940s silhouettes and the delicate folds of Japanese origami, the 17 sophisticated new styles pick up where Flint left off last season—which, impressively, was also her debut showing.

At the core of Flint’s classic, ladylike aesthetic is expert leatherwork in top quality skins, from supple suede and calfskin to touches of exotic lizard trim, with a meticulous eye for both design and fit. The Parsons and FIT grad is well-versed in the art of the sole: Having studied footwear pattern-making and prototyping at the prestigious Ars Sutoria school in Milan, she returned stateside for stints at Diane von Furstenberg and Proenza Schouler before setting out to create her eponymous line.

In just two seasons, Flint’s timeless, ultra-wearable designs have garnered the attention of buyers from top independent retailers like Edon Manor in New York—and as of August 15th, shoe fiends can get their fix online anytime with the official launch of e-commerce on While she might not be a household name just yet, the future looks bright for Sarah Flint.
