In August I had the opportunity to interview Sara Patterson the owner of Migration Boutique located in The Bay Centre. I was really excited to meet with her because she is so supportive of local artisans and designer and carries of 50+ local designers at her boutique. If you haven’t been down to Migration I would highly recommend stopping by especially if you are looking for unique one of a kind locally made products.

1. What was your first job?

My 1st job was working at a Mall (ironically) at a kiosk selling imported fashion wear, accessories and jewelry.

2. Why did you start Migration Boutique?

Migration Boutique:

I had been designing and importing my own line “Lotus” for many years, working at festivals, and designer markets. 7 years ago, I decided to start a “Pop-Up” Collective at the Mall and thought it would be cool to include all of my Victoria and Vancouver Designer friends as there is so much local talent to be featured! (Especially in a mall setting).  We now have a collective of 50+ local designers at Migration.

Here is a blurb about my in house “Migration Line” and my reasons for starting Migration and “Lotus”.

I have been traveling for many years to various regions of the world and I have always been greeted with an overwhelming sense of community and family. The colors, cultures and people’s passion for life have kept me returning overseas and have driven me to combine my two loves of travel and design. The creativity of the local artisans has always been a point of inspiration for me. In every country I have been to I have always made a point to look for local crafts and designs.  All of the kindness and friendship I have received makes me believe in being as helpful to them as they have been to me.

3. Do you have any advice for young entrepreneurs and recent graduates trying to get their foot in the door?

Follow your instincts! Gather your creative and supportive people around you and trust in yourself and in your vision.

4. Who is your style Icon?

My friends, my community and what I am inspired by when I travel.

5. If you could go back in time where would you go and why?

I would go back to when I first started traveling in Asia. All of the colours and culture was a point of inspiration for me. Everything was new and exciting! 🙂
