Ancuta Sarca is the Romanian-born and London-based designer who's gained international recognition for her upcycled trainer and vintage heel hybrid footwear. An advocate for sustainable fashion, resisting fast fashion and proposing her upcycled kitten heels as an eco-friendly alternative. Sarca received a Masters degree in fashion from The Art and Design University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania and moved to London working with Meadham Kirchhoff and Ashish before venturing out on her own. Sarca made her debut at London Fashion Week Spring Summer 2020 with a footwear presentation as part of Fashion East and her limited edition capsule collection with retailer LNCC sold out within an hour soon after. Her Spring Summer 2020 collection will be available from Browns, LN-CC, Joyce Hong Kong and more soon. Autumn Winter 2020 will be Sarca's second with support from Fashion East.
