Sarah Harkins

Lecturer

Professional Biography

Sarah has over 20 years’ experience of working in the fashion and design industry, developing professional and creative skills which she now uses in the educational arena. Having graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1996, with an MA in Interior Design & Architecture, Sarah has worked for both large and small practices across the retail, leisure and workplace sectors.

Sarah has been teaching at the School of Fashion and Design, on the Interior Design BA since summer 2012, and on the integrated Foundation Course since 2015. She combines this with working as a practitioner and running her own company, Another Designer, since 2012, ensuring that she stays on top of current trends and innovations within design and architecture, continuing to build industry experience and expertise.

As part of Regent's' Design faculty, Sarah’s approach is to encourage the appreciation of design philosophy and how this can be woven into developing designed spaces that tell stories and create journeys – uniting narrative and pragmatism that occurs within the design process.
