I’m very excited about my special feature and after coming across this very new designer on Twitter a few months ago, this new collection is a beautiful and elegant twist on the classic and if you have any weddings to attend then this designer is a must see!
Sophie has recently finished her degree is Fashion Design at Birmingham City University and is already destined for great things, for one having her first collection under her belt and available to buy on the website www.sophiebelinda.com. This is the first but not last from this fab young designer. The collection takes vintage elements and mixes with classic lines and fabrics, Sophie also offers a completely bespoke service too so you really can have a one of a kind piece for your collection.
Sophie has kindly given us an insight into the new collection and what’s in store for the bright young designer:
When was your collection created and reasons for starting this brand?
I’ve being creating bits and bobs from the collection for about two months now, its only just recently
that every things gone up for sale on the website, so it’s all very exciting!
I wanted to start up the brand purely because of my love of fashion and all things handmade!
I’ve just recently finished my degree at Birmingham City Uni where I studied Fashion Design for 3 years.
Sophie, what inspires your items?
My inspiration comes from various different things, I’ve always loved things pretty and girly! Floral prints, pastel colours. I suppose you could say weddings were part of my main inspiration, I love the whole romance of it, and I think it comes across well in my lace collection!!
What are your aspirations for Sophie Belinda Clothing and the future?
I have high hopes for the brand! Start small, but think Big !
This year over the Christmas period I’m going to be creating a collection of party dresses, so keep a look out! I’m also going to be at various fashion events this year, Cheltenham fashion week being one of them!
Sophie Belinda Clothing is an inspiration to all aspiring designers and the small but intimate collection is the first of many. Check out the new website at www.sophiebelinda.com and follow via the social media links below:
