For Inka, of ISM Mode, designing a collection is an organic process. She starts with a feel and shapes that she wants to create, then looks into fabrics might to satisfy her vision whilst letting the fabric inspire her. Every season she experiments with shapes on the mannequin and comes up with unique dye techniques to add color and patterns. ISM Mode is a sustainable and eco driven line.
About Inka Sherman, ISM Mode
Spending her formative years living in an alternative artist commune in Austria grounded Inka in her design and artistic investigation. She concentrated her craft studying fashion at FHTW-Berlin, where she graduated with a masters in fashion design. 

Internships in New York with fashion designer Anna Sui and in Sydney at the Australian Film Television and Radio School assisting the costume designer on the Oscar nominated short film, The Savior, refined her skills. Returning to Germany, Inka kept busy working with costume designers on commercials and films, including the Oscar wining best foreign film of 2007, The Counterfeiters. During that time she was also developing her collection for her label ISM that was launched upon her move to Los Angeles where she is now based.

The Fall/Winter 12-13 collection was inspired by lady-like silhouettes. Sarine Marie plays on both a classic yet edgy element. Accentuating all body types and lifestyles, the collection is prone to add chic sophistication in every ensemble. The Fall I group consists of delicate, feminine fabrics and silhouettes with tailored jackets and outerwear.

Laces, virgin wool, silk, and wool gabardine in light feminine colors such as nude, black, nude pink, ivory, and gold are also combined mixtures in the fall collection. The second group of the fall collection is edgier yet still maintains a feminine air. With feminine silhouettes, tailored jackets, mixed fabrics and textures like leather, metallic, and various colored tweed, both groups of the fall collection display different sides of the Sarine Marie
