Sophie has been involved in design for over twenty years. Her foundations lie in fine art, having originally trained as a painter, and it’s this fine fine art background that gives Sophie’s work a unique edge. Following a successful career as an art director in London she now runs her own global fashion and arts brand, Sophie Darling, from her studio in Brighton.
Every Sophie Darling design starts with a drawing. Each brush mark and line is considered. Designs are re-imagined and interpreted onto fabric and paper. Her work is multi-layered and each piece is often embellished or embroidered adding a final touch. Sophie celebrates individual style and personality through her expressive illustration and unique print aesthetic. Her designs offer the kind of individuality synonymous with contemporary British design.
During her career, Sophie has worked for global brands as well as sold collections in London, Paris, New York, Sydney and Tokyo. SOPHIE DARLING WEBSITE
