Here, Sarah opens up to Hello! Canada about having found a fan in Meghan and other fashionable celebrities like Amal Clooney, Blake Lively and Mila Kunis.

How does it feel to see Meghan stepping out in your designs? Meghan has actually been wearing Sarah Flint for over a year, so I’ve been a fan of her work for quite a while. It’s always incredible to see the intensity of the spotlight in moments like this, but we wish her nothing but the best.

You've also found fans in Amal Clooney and other stars. What's it like having celebrities wear your shoes? It still feels so surreal! I’ve been lucky enough to have some amazing women wear my shoes and I love to see how they each style them. Just like real women, they each wear them in their own way, whether it’s with a feminine dress or ripped up denim.

Any exciting new designs coming in 2017? We have lots of new and exciting pieces in the works for 2017. My spring collection is inspired by flowers and many of the pieces feature hand painted petals.
