Stars + Ravens is a women's clothing line designed by Sarah Borruso. As a native San Franciscan, Sarah has
created the line taking inspiration from San Francisco history and culture – including such incidents as the
1906 earthquake, the late 60s Summer of Love and the early 80s punk scene. The name, Stars + Ravens, reflects
contrasts, just as these episodes did: disaster and rebirth, violence and peace, angst and expression. The line
itself plays with such contrasts – light and dark, old and new, understated and outspoken – defining an overall
aesthetic that mixes visions of the past and the future.

After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of California at Berkeley, Sarah spent time working
in the art and journalism worlds before returning to school to study fashion at Parsons School of Design. She
owes a large debt to the incredible influence that came from working at such places as the San Francisco Museum
of Modern Art and Wired magazine, to name a few. She currently lives and works, of course, in San Francisco.
