Interview with Anya Sarre:  Television Fashion Expert, Red Carpet Celebrity Stylist & Designer:

From celebrity styling and red carpet trend spotting, to being interviewed about this season’s must-haves, Anya Sarre, is the go-to fashion force among Hollywood tastemakers.  I have seen Anya numerous times on television shows such as The Insider and Entertainment Tonight. I was always intrigued by her keen sense to be able to create the “look for less”, something most of us need help with if we do not have a hollywood budget behind us.

I caught up with Anya and wanted to find out the secrets to her success and what she is working on.  She was gracious enough to share her secrets and her insights with me.

When did you first realize you were destined to work in fashion?

When I was in kindergarten, my principal called my mom and said there was a problem because I would change my outfit five times a day and give the other kids make-overs.

Where did you go to college? Any additional training?

I went to USC and studied communication and business, and then I went to Parsons New School of Design for a graduate program in fashion design and trend spotting.

Who did you intern with?

I am a huge believer in internships because they help you find out what you want to do and what you don’t want to do. I interned at PR firms, advertising agencies and on movie sets. They gave me a greater understanding of all aspects of the business that help me tremendously every day.

Who do you credit for “mentoring” you?

I credit my parents for mentoring me. My mom always encouraged me to be creative and follow my dreams. My dad taught me a strong work ethic and to do something I love. They have every single magazine that I’ve been in and they record every single TV show I am on. I am very lucky to have that amazing support.

Who do you feel gave you your first “big break” that contributed to your success?

I credit my first big break to Hilary Duff. I was working on a movie and started working with her. That was a great time in my career, and everything grew from there.
