Perhaps it was the fact her corrective shoes didn't match her party dresses growing up in Palm Beach, that inspired Sarah Mettler to become a shoe designer, but regardless, the girl was focused!
She was further convinced after classes at Parsons in Paris and New York, and working in master cobbler Roger Vivier's Madison Avenue store. On Mr Vivier's advice she applied to shoe pattern making school, and simultaneously was offered a prestigious position designing for the Ferragamo family in Florence Italy. She gladly accepted knowing their famous fit would be a complement to her skills, after recently having graduated from ARS Sutoria, in Milan Italy. Four plus years into her Italian experience she left Ferragamo and Italy, grateful for the knowledge learned, to return to New York and to launch her own line Sarah Mettler, and to design Perry Ellis's line. Ironically, the pinnacle of her career happened when Roger Vivier came back into her life, asking her to be the only person to ever apprentice under him, for his new line Roger Vivier for Delman.
Flash forward, happily married with four sons, she was content being "the lady in the shoe, teaching the neighborborhood kids about the craft she loves, until technology afforded her the opportunity to "Globally inspire next season's shoe designer."
