About Silk & Steel

Silk&Steel has an undeniable aura of cool. With an unconventional approach to design, Sarah Cotterall is creating luxury fashion statements worthy of runways, celebrities, and women all across the country.

The Silk&Steel collection is based on juxtaposition. True beauty can come from the pairing of opposites. Using the unlikely pairings of unique textiles and gems with hand-sewn detailing and collectable vintage she crafts dramatic statement pieces. This unique approach is also used designing her main diffusion line of high-casual, boho-chic pieces.  This line is now available in boutiques across New Zealand and soon to be launched in Australia.

Hailing from London, Sarah’s inherent love of the city is obvious throughout her collection with a constant thread of edginess and metro chic.   This thread fused with luxurious undercurrents defines the signature of Silk&Steel.

In addition to the main collections Silk&Steel has been involved in a variety of exciting collaborations with leading New Zealand fashion designers including Yvonne Benneti and Trelise Cooper, working together to create unique one-off pieces to compliment their own collections.

Silk&Steel has been featured on the runway at NZ Fashion week numerous times since the collection launched in 2009, with Silk&Steel Bespoke clearly winning over stylists and fashionista’s at this event.  The collection has quickly become a darling of trend reports and fashion magazines as well as being sought out by New Zealand celebrities and international popstars.

Sarah is not afraid to challenge the conventions of her craft and the results are fresh, inspired and distinctly fashion forward.
