We're so excited to introduce you to our intern turned Design Room Assistant, Sarah Gray.
Sarah started with Tigerlily just over a year ago and has quickly established herself as an integral part of the team. Never one to shy away from a challenge Sarah has seen the design team through many late nights getting things exactly right for our upcoming collections.
We sat down with her to learn more about how she got started working in the fashion industry and to hear what inspires her.

Do you prefer the beach or are you more of a sitting poolside with a cocktail person? I’m a beach girl! But also would never say no to a cocktail.

Where is your ultimate summer holiday destination? I’d love to visit the Coco’s Islands for a beach getaway.
