Sophie Nzinga Sy, whose natural talent was developed while attending the prestigious design school, Parsons, has always been an avid art enthusiast. Senegalese born, she is constantly drawing inspiration from her travels and the fusion of the multiple cultures that have shaped her, from her African roots to her New York City education and entrepreneurial mindset.
She considers herself a citizen of the world and her designs are a distinctive blend of her artistic experiences and an eclectic cocktail of her voyages. Sophie’s design philosophy has remained to give the modern woman the key pieces to constantly reinvent her style while exuding confidence whether she is in a board meeting, attending a gala or traveling between New York and Lagos.
