-Full name & title?

Sarah Aghili, entrepreneur and jewelry designer. (이름은 Sarah Aghili, 직업은 쥬얼리 디자이너,경영자)


No and No. (미혼이에요)


-Education/professional background/any fun jobs before going into fashion?

Graduated from the University Of Texas in San Antonio with a degree in public relations.
(산안토니오에 있는 텍사스 대학에서 홍보 관련 공부를 했습니다)

-Any interesting or fun details/stories about your background that you don't mind sharing?           

I am Iranian. I have a brother who is one year older than me, we are polar opposites.
(저는 이란 사람이고, 1살 많은 오빠가 있는데 저와는 정말 성격이 다르답니다.)


-How do you describe your personal style?

Retro Bohemian- it really depends on my mood, some days I’m color crazy!
(스타일은 그날 기분에 따라 틀리지만 복고적이고 보헤미안 적인 스타일을 즐긴다고 할 수 있어요.
어떤 날엔 컬러를 너무 좋아하게 되고요!)

-Who are your favorite designers?

Emilio Pucci and Missoni. Colors and patterns are brilliant, and so alive.
(저는 컬러 패턴감이 뛰어난 에밀리오 푸치나 미쏘니를 사랑합니다)



-Why did you go into the fashion industry?

I always was cutting up necklaces and pieces I had to create something unique. I wanted to create affordable, on trend accessories for fashionista’s on a budget.
(패션계에 일하게 된 계기는 저는 항상 목걸이나 다른 악세사리들을 자르고 새로운 유니크한 피스를 만들길 좋아했어요. 그러다보니 패셔니스타들이 트렌디하지만 합리적인 가격대의 악세사리를 구매할수 있게 만들고 싶다는 생각을 했어요)

-Tell me about the evolution of your company//how & when did your biz come about?

After I graduated, I went to Iran with my parents (we have a home there), we took a trip to India and I had brought back some stones and took them to the jeweler in Iran… for days I was sitting with him explaining what I wanted him to do with them, finally I went behind his counters and used his tools to make my visions come to life.. this was the beginning of it all! That was 4 years ago, now we are in over 50 stores worldwide.

(회사를 차리게 된 스토리를 하자면, 졸업 후 부모님과 이란을 갔어요 - 집이 그곳에도 있거든요- 그 후 인도에 여행을 가서 스톤들을 가져오고 이란에 보석상에게 갔어요. 며칠동안 그 보석세공인과 제가 원하는 것을 설명하며 결국 제가 상상한 것들이 탄생하게 되었어요. 이 계기가 4년 전이었는데 이제 제 라인은 세계적으로 50여개의 가게에 입점해있답니다.)


-What is the extent of your line—how many items//what types of items//price range//how do you describe your collection to a stranger?

Huge selection. Lots of evil eye items, and hamsa hands. Affordable jewelry is my main focus. I try to create products that I would want at a more desirable price. Jewelry ranges from $4.50-$115.00. Our median is $12.50.
(아이템들은 정말 많아요. 합리적인 가격대가 중점이기에 가격대는 $4.50부터 $115 까지 다양합니다-약 5천원부터 12만원선-)

-Where do you sell//best retailer in Houston?

My favorite retailer in Houston is the Auxilary Gift Shops at the Texas Children’s Hospital! They are my favorite because all of the proceeds from the bracelets that are sold there are donated for pediatric cancer research. My favorite retailer we work with it Bloomingdale’s in Dubai.
(휴스턴에서 제가 제일 좋아하는 기프트 숍이 Auxilary라는 텍사스 어린이 병원에 위치한 가게가 있어요. 제가 제일 좋아하는 이유는 팔찌들의 이익으로 소아과의 암 연구소에 기부되기 때문이에요.
제 라인이 들어간 숍중 제일 좋아하는 곳은 두바이에 있는 블루밍데일 백화점입니다.)


-Describe your design aesthetic. (What sets your designs apart? Who/what inspires you?)

Lots of evil eye and karma pieces, I am inspired by love of art, culture, travels, and music, all of which are reflected in my designs. My collections are refined with influence and inspiration from travel. Giving back inspires me the most.
(디자인의 영감은 예술, 문화, 여행, 음악 등에서 받아요. 나눔을 주고 도와주는 것이 저에겐 큰 인스피레이션 입니다)

-Explain the philanthropy component of your biz.

Currently involved with over a dozen charities and organizations to raise awareness for common issues.
People Water is a project I am passionate about right now. We have teamed up to bring clean water to communities in need, People Water is a company that for every bottle of water you buy, they provide and equal amount of water to a community in need, by building wells. 

Hands For Africa is another project that is one of my favorites. Hands for Africa was borne out of the aftermath of the Blood Diamond industry in Sierra Leone. They support the hundreds of thousands of children, women and men who have been maimed by machetes or explosive devices. These are individuals who have lost not only their limbs, but oftentimes their livelihoods as farmers or vendors. With the loss of a dignified way to earn a living, often comes a loss of all hope.

Mother Miracle is our newest charity partner.
(with Mother Miracle school in Rishikesh, India to provide uniforms for the students.) In Rishikesh, children are not allowed to go to school without a uniform and this is a barrier that prevents many children fulfilling their potential through education. Every scarf purchased provides one school uniform.

You can view them all here:

(자선 단체와 많이 일하고 있습니다. People Water, Hands for Africa, Mother Miracle 등이 예인데
위에 사이트에서 더 많이 정보를 접하실 수 있을거에요)


-Why is this cause close to your heart?

I hope that one day I am able to change the way people understand the role their business has to positively impact our world.
(자선 단체에 관심을 가지게 된 이유는: 저는 언젠가 사람들이 자신의 사업을 통해 도움을 주면서 얼마나 세계에 영향을 주고 바꿀 수 있는지 알게 되기를 바랍니다.)

-Who is your typical customer?

Women from 18-25
(주 고객은 18-25세의 여성들입니다)




-Any celebs we can mention?

Hunger Games actress Isabelle Fuhrmam.

Press: Seen In: Life & Style, Glamour, SHAPE, People Style Watch, US Weekly, Women’s Health, Latina, Seventeen, Cosmopoliton, Redbook, All You, OK!, Fitness, Fit Pregnancy, American Cheerleader, Girls Life,…
(*헝거게임의 여배우 Isabelle Fuhrmam역시 Sarah Aghili의 피스들을 착용,
그외에 위에 잡지들에서도 자주 소개해주는 제품들이니 관심있으신 분들은 쉽게 접하실수 있을거에요!)
-What do you consider your biggest accomplishment/most proud of?

Being able to give back. So many people don’t realize how much they can give back, whatever their business may be…
(아까도 말했듯이, 저의 제일 큰 성취는 사람들에게 나눠줄 수 있다는 것입니다.
많은 사람들이 얼마나 자신들이 하는 일로 도움을 줄 수 있는지 모르고 있습니다)
