“Nothing makes me happier than several perfectly placed buttons marching neatly down a garment,” says Sarah Prost, designer of Yellow Clover. “My work is very detail focused. I love to include special touches like patterned pocket linings or hand embroidery. Maybe only the wearer knows about it, but it makes her feel special every time she puts it on.” Sarah, who lives in New Hampshire, grew up on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. She spent some time backpacking through Australia, Japan and Europe before returning to Canada to enroll at Helen Lefeaux School of Fashion Design. Her Yellow Clover Spring/Summer 2013 collection, Kopanitse, reflects that worldliness and was inspired by her husband’s Slovakian heritage. “Slovakians are known for their use of bright colors in their handcrafts – like embroidery, folk art, glass and crystals,” Sarah describes. On the runway, look for printed cottons, bright embroidery, hand-painted glass buttons and jewelry by Boston designer Magdalena Stokalska. “One of the main reasons I became a designer is because I love the fast-paced, ever changing aspect of it,” Sarah says. “There is always something waiting to be tried. Most of all I love the look on a person’s face when she tries on one of my pieces and absolutely loves it. That melts my heart.” Yellow Clover is available at boutiques throughout the country. Sarah Prost will be presenting at 8pm on Friday, August 31 at the Providence Biltmore.
