about sophy

Sophy Wong wears many hats – graphic designer, seamstress, crafter, nerd, classic movie addict, dreamer. Most recently, she worked as a graphic designer for Gap Inc. After deciding to pursue a new dream, she left Old Navy to delve deep into her creative brain and will now, before your very eyes, attempt to design clothing. This blog is a record of her journey.

Sophy’s ideas come from varied sources: animals and nature, film and theater costumes, vintage eras, subcultures (ex: steampunk and cosplay), characters from old books, and random objects like fountain pens and air mail envelopes. The purpose of this blog is to record and share her projects, inspiration, research and process with friends and interested strangers.
