There are a lot of creative people who have shared their skills and knowledge with me to help make my ideas for Fin+Zee come to life.

A conversation with Sarah Kirk

We had a great opportunity to have a small conversation with Sarah from @godsavethescene and to see some beautiful corners in her house in Middleburg, Virginia. It has been our privilege to see her enjoying styling her little ones with Fin+Zee’s garments.   Could you tell us a little bit about you and your family?   My husband and I lived in London for six years before getting married. We had the most charming little mews house in Parsons Green. I used to work in art museums. When we decided to start a family, we knew we wanted our children to have a similar upbringing as we did. My husband grew up in the Cotswolds and I was raised in...
