After completing the Bachelor of Design (Fashion)(Honours) at RMIT University, Sarah Hope Schofield completed a postgraduate program majoring in accessories at the Institut Français de la Mode in Paris and gained 7 years of industry experience in design positions at Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton, Nina Ricci, Versace and Jacquemus. In this time Sarah also developed her own brand, ASSK which showed in New York Fashion Week, was stocked at more than 30 of the world leading stores and was a favourite of Rihanna.
