SOFI + ISOBEL
Accessories – Philadelphia
I am a Philadelphia based designer. Born and raised in the Philippines, i came to the USA at the age of 9 and was very shy so i spent most of times reading books and watching old movies starring Audrey Hepburn. The 1st movie i watched with Audrey was Roman Holiday and i just couldn\'t get enough of her - thus began my love for vintage fashion. My family also enjoyed Archie comics and thru the characters of Betty and Veronica, i was also inspired by their styles especially strips from the 40\'s and 60\'s. As a designer, i like to integrate pieces of my culture that have a personal connection to me in my work.
