Every designer dreams of owning their own shop and gaining recognition in the global scene. Though this dream, for some, might seem like a shot to the moon, others find their own way of making it come true with a lot of hard work and patience.
Designer Charina Sarte has already made of those dreams a reality. In fact, her store actually just celebrated its 4th anniversary. With this milestone, she is also happy to announce that her line will now be carried at a boutique in Paris. We’re hoping that it won’t be long before she’s able to make her mark in the global scene. Read on as we stop by for a quick chat with the designer.

Describe the Charina Sarte woman.
The Charina Sarte woman is a lover of life. She knows what she wants and she works for it.
What's been the most challenging experience for you as a designer so far?
What’s most challenging for me as a designer is consistently staying inspired and being able to merge these ideas with business. When you have a store, you need to constantly have creations that people would want to buy.
What's next for Charina Sarte?
I am happy to announce that I will be available in Paris next year. I just signed a deal with a boutique to carry my line. Hopefully I’ll have more international sales after that too.
