    Sariah Park


    Sariah Park is an interdisciplinary artist with over seventeen years of experience in fiber, print, and fashion design. Sariah Park’s BFA thesis collection from Parsons won the prestigious Gold Thimble Award for her silkscreened sportswear and handwoven designs. Her thesis collection was bought by Barneys New York directly out of school and catapulted her career into fashion. Park’s work has also been featured and sold around the world with select retailers like Neiman Marcus, Louis Boston, Creatures of Comfort, Barneys Japan, and United Arrows. She has collaborated with Anthropologie to produce a line of her signature printed apparel. Her work has been featured in Hyperallergic, the Wall Street Journal, WWD, Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar. Park is the recent recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Fellowship and CERF+ Artist Grant. Her work is included in many professional portfolios, traveling exhibitions, and private collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Sariah’s current research is focused on Indigenous Studies, decentering whiteness within art and fashion, and the development of sustainable land-based practices for textile production. Her work explores her Indigeneity and addresses issues of waste within fashion.  Sariah's most recent body of work features the upcycling and repurposing of dead stock and damaged printed textiles into new forms and printing with waste to create large-scale works on paper. In addition to having her own practice, Sariah Park has been teaching fashion and textile design at Parsons for the last ten years.
