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.
Sophie Darling is primarily a fashion and accessories label, however, Sophie’s foundations lie in fine art, having originally trained as a painter, its this fine art background that gives Sophie’s work a unique edge. Her work is multi layered and each piece is often embellished or embroidered adding a final touch. She started her own fashion label in 2013 after leaving her role as a design director in London. Prior to this she ran an acclaimed handbag company, Kimchi which has global recognition.
Sophie makes virtually all her work in house in her Brighton screen printing studio. Each print is a labour of love.
Sophie’s images offer the kind of individuality synonymous with contemporary British Design, celebrating individual style and personality through her expressive illustration and contemporary interpretations of print and pattern. SOPHIE DARLING WEBSITE
