What Florist and Stylist Sara Jane Camacho is Crushing On

The local event and wedding maven dishes on her latest inspirations and go-to places.

By Olivia Tinsley

Our Crushing On series highlights Seattle designers, tastemakers, and off-the-beaten-path boutique owners to ask what chic coiffures, budding blogs, and local eateries are making them tick right now.

Sara Jane Camacho has always been one with nature. She grew up working alongside her family in the tobacco fields and looked on as her mother turned a passion for botanicals into a successful career as a florist. With a knack for bouquets and business acumen in her blood, it seems only logical that Camacho would go on to launch a flower business of her own at the age of 18.

After college, she took a pause from petals, working as a human rights educator and serving on the U.S. Attorney’s anti-human trafficking task force for five years. Now, in addition to heading her event styling biz, Camacho combines her passion for blooms and labor justice as the manager and wedding coordinator of Terra Bella Flowers—the first flower shop in the country to source organic flowers from local farms with fair-trade and sustainable practices.

Favorite source of fashion inspiration? Lately I’ve been obsessed with the Fog Linen site and every item they create. I just bought a Grainline Studio pattern and some linen to start making shirts for summer. Seattle’s Velouria also is a regular go-to for inspiration and shopping.

Best Instagram feed? Father John Misty and St. Vincent keep me laughing and a little more grounded in Instaworld. Also, Emily Katz, creator of Modern Macrame inspires me with her interiors, macramé, and plant-based designs.

Who does your hair? Sara March at Seven Salon Downtown. We talk pastries, pups, and dark-and-moody flower and hair collabs.
