interviewed: sarah seilbach

i reviewed the edelweiss by sarah line last october, and was seriously blown away by all the beautiful dresses. they give a heavy nod to the '40s and '50s like Sarah said, yet they feel totally modern and now. i interviewed Sarah for 21st and Ivy - all about her life in Brooklyn, designing with her husband, and where she derives inspiration.
it got me thinking about what separates me from someone like Sarah. i am not as intense as i once was, but even just last year (before my brain turned to mush due to nursing) i could spot pretty much anything in a magazine and tell you who designed it. one day in college i figured i loved clothes enough why shouldn't i try to make them myself? i bought a huge sketch pad and charcoal pencils and sat down and drew out my dream wardrobe. and by the same time the next day i forgot all about that sketch pad. 

what i am asking is what separates us from having and idea or desire & actually going for it? i've had multitudes of ideas, and many of them have come to fruition. most are forgotten. what made Sarah go from one drawing on a sketchpad to a studio in Brooklyn, and a 10 piece collection? it's a brain buster, but you can read the interview here...
