Sarah Ann Murray
Sarah Ann Murray is a freelance fashion stylist and creative director, styling and art directing photoshoots for magazines, styling celebrities and working closely with brands on their visual campaigns and collection designs.
Having graduated Birmingham University with a Law with French degree - a far cry from the fashion world - and after travelling some 28 countries, Sarah moved to a more creative calling when she attended the London College of Fashion to hone her styling skills.
When living in Singapore she joined a luxury men’s magazine as their Fashion Director and spent six years writing about luxury, attending fashion weeks, and styling some fascinating people, including Samuel L. Jackson, Charles Dance, Serena Williams and Eric Cantona.
Since going freelance and setting up her own business, Sarah has been lucky enough to continue working with some of the industry’s most recognizable names, from photographer’s like Rankin, to styling Massimo Dutti’s Spring imagery, dressing David Beckham and more recently, becoming personal stylist to Brian May, for Queen’s world tour and for their Oscar’s performance. Here, she put together a full tour wardrobe planning every look Brian would wear on stage and for press and TV events. She even got to play on his guitar and hang out with Brian’s cat!
Since moving to the Algarve a year and a half ago, Sarah is finally about to undertake a shoot here, making the most of the beauty of the region for a British shoe brand’s Spring Summer campaign, before flying back to London to collaborate with British brand, Private White VC for their AW collection.
When not styling or researching topics for the Tomorrow magazine’s fashion page, Sarah teaches her own brand of functional yoga to sports enthusiasts and total beginners, called Stretch & Flex, she trains private clients as a PT, plays netball with Tomorrow magazine’s editor, Sophie, she runs with local Algarve running Club, MDR Project, with her first race of the season pending, and with the last remaining bit of energy, she is still, very slowly, learning to surf.
