A lot has happened since we last talked. Sabrina Spanta has recently expanded to New York City. With the birth of the brand in Detroit and expansion to NYC, we can only imagine what the future has to hold. After all, New York City is the fashion capital of the world alongside Paris, London, and Milan. We ought to empower women and voice what it means to be a woman. Sabrina Spanta the brand is an unstoppable, driving force and we cannot wait to expand and discover. We hope to inspire women, one X-Pant at a time from Detroit to New York City and Beyond. Let’s not forget where it all started with Hour Detroit, one on one interview with Rachel Thomas.
“My personal style is … Boy-meets-girl, very much so. I’m not scared of mixing and matching and not wearing things in the normal way they were meant to be worn.
My go-to look: I will always have a blazer on. I always have [one] with me in the back of the car.
My design aesthetic: It’s bold — whether it’s with colors, the patterns, or the shape. It has parts of my Afghani roots in it. It’s edgy and it’s sophisticated. … I design for the modern woman who isn’t afraid to dress to be different.
My favorite designer at the moment: [Schiaparelli Artistic Director] Daniel Roseberry — I love his aesthetic. How he brings that artistic side of fashion and fashion expressionism. … I love that kind of passion, where you see something and you question it, and without even saying a word or trying to figure the look out, the art just evokes emotion.
If I weren’t a designer, I would be … A dancer, because it’s been a dream of mine to move the way dancers move their bodies, to express themselves in so many different ways.
How I get in a creative zone: I listen to all different types of music from all over the world, from K-pop to Russian to Spanish. That’s what gets me going.
My advice to aspiring designers: Follow your intuition, keep dreaming, and never lose hope. You’re going to have depressing-ass days where you’re going to doubt yourself. Don’t let that get in the way. Remember the law of attraction: The more beauty and creativity you put into your mind, the more that’s going to come out to the world — and the world’s going to give it right back to you.”
We are ever evolving as multidimensional individuals. We can't wait to share all of the amazing designs and creativity we have planned for this brand. We are in a city where anything is possible. Please don’t hesitate to reach out and connect. We want to hear your voice. Should you dare to dream?
