This one popped up in the news pappers and digital media today like a belated christmas present: Burkhard is one of three winners of the Umeå Creator Award 2013 (Umeå Skaparpris), category Design. The jurys motivation: “The jury chooses to reward Sara Burkhard, who with her accurate collection actively has taken fashion in Umeå a step further. Her design is daring, lasting and architectural, but can still be worn by many.” The official award ceremony and party will be hosted at Norrlands Operan in Umeå on January 17th.
Beginning of December the shooting for “OKKULT”, the SARA BURKHARD spring/summer collection 2013 was done. An amazing team consisting of two models, a hair- and makeup artist and a brilliant photographer did an incredible job in bringing the vision for OKKULT to life.
The collection will be available in stores from February/March on, by then the full lookbook will be published here. For now here is a short preview of the lookbook before packaging.
Two weeks ago SARA BURKHARD had the pleasure of showing a selection of “OKKULT”, the new collection for spring/summer 2013, to a selected Swedish crowd. During a showcase at the Designbar Aveny in Umeå the collection was on display, including accessoires like a scarf and a bag as well as the new signature print pattern.
“OKKULT” will be in stores spring 2013.
After working on it for almost a month the “PAPER BRIDE” dress was presented in a fashion show during the “See Västerbottens Hållbarhetsvecka”, the Sustainability Awareness Week for the north of Sweden. With its construction out of only recycled newspapers and its futuristic design resembling a human cocoon the jury thought it was really catching the essential thoughts of the competition and named it a winner.
On october 23rd, 2011, four fashion designers from Umeå, Sweden, participated in the runway show Kostym n°2. The designers were SARA BURKHARD, JohannaN, Frida Fahlström and Malin Marteliusson.

And it was worth the wait! For all who missed the show, did not get a ticket or just want to see the collections again – voilá. SARA BURKHARDs collection is last out in the movie.
