Her name is Sara Colacicco, she is English, but, as you can understand from her surname, she has Italian origins. The designer founded her headwear label Sara Tiara, in 2011 with her husband Pier Bosma.
Sara has been working in design and fashion all her life. Growing up in the midst of the noise of Notting Hill antiques, she started her business on the famous Portobello Road selling vintage clothes and coats designed and created by her.
After several years she decided to put together her three biggest passions: ecological fashion, vintage fabrics and elegant hats with an exquisitely English flavor. This is how he began to create headwear (headbands and hats) unique in its kind.
Sara and Pier have created their own atelier in Dorset to develop a brand totally Made in England that would sum up the style of the English heritage.
Since then, Sara and her highly skilled team of milling and sewing addicted have been working closely together to create unique headgear and clothing including the sustainability as part of the business.
The Sara Tiara label has become synonymous with Harris Tweed patchwork, a non-conformist tailoring and timeless models reminiscent of the Victorian era.
The collection presents a surprising series of unique pieces, made with unusual and recycled fabrics, including tweed, cashmere, antique lace, feathers, retro jewelry and beads.
The customers of her shop in Portobello Road are the main source of Sara’s inspiration and that is why a large part of his work consists in creating tailored garments.
Sara Tiara’s design is suitable for all occasions and all personalities. Not just weddings and Ascot. In fact, many pieces can be worn every day to embellish and make casual clothing unique.
Recently, the designer has created a capsule collection that is simply extraordinary, in collaboration with the Italian influencer Carolina Ogliaro.
The collection, made of 6 model of hats, includes a variety of styles suitable for different occasions, ranging from the Calypso headdress designed as a holiday accessory, to the Phoenix model, a conspicuously nonconformist piece.
Both Carolina and Sara have created this collection by following a strong mantra that they have in common according to which, you don’t always need a real opportunity to wear a hat.
And as Isabella Blow once said: “I don’t use a hat for support. I use it as part of me.”
