The Long-Time Friends Behind The Label
Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke are the dynamic BFF duo behind the genius Sass and Bide label. The pair met at school in Australia in 1992, and after attending separate colleges they moved to London to set up their label together. The name Sass and Bide is derived from both of their names - Sarah (Sass) and Heidi (Bide). The pair started out selling jeans at Portobello Road Market in 1999, and since then have gone from strength to strength as designers. Their firm, unshakeable friendship has been the backbone of their brand since day one, and the duo insist that they are always friends first, business partners second.
From Small Stalls To Sex And The City
Sass and Bide clothing began with a line of jeans being sold from a small stall at London’s Portobello Road Market in 1999. By 2002 they had begun ascending the ranks of fashion fame, participating in London Fashion Week that year. 2002 was also the year that Sass and Bide ended up securing a spot on TV’s most fashionable show - Sex And The City. After a chance encounter with Sarah Jessica Parker, she commissioned the brand to make some one-off items for her character on the show. This publicity proved pivotal to the brand. 2003 marked their transition to New York Fashion Week, where the brand showcased collection for eight years before returning to London. Today Sass and Bide is still run by BFFs Sarah and Heidi, and continues to create funky, unique clothing.
Avant-Garde At Its Awesomest
Sass and Bide clothing is unique, quirky and cool. The designers burst on the scene with an enviable collection of Sass and Bide jeans in 1999, and since then they’ve gone on to supply the world with stunning dresses, jackets, tops and other pieces. Their use of weird, unexpected materials gives them an edge over other brands. Shells, teeth, seeds, raffia, metal and other odd objects have been used to embellish their creations. Rihanna, Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian are all fond of the label, each with a Sass & Bide dress or two hanging in their closets.
