a leap of faith

In 2009, I left my job as a graphic designer for Gap Inc., to pursue a new dream born from a lifelong passion. With incredible support from my husband and my parents, I began creating concepts for a clothing line. After many seemingly endless days (and nights) of hard work, I am excited to be able to share my love of design and fashion here on SophyWong.com.

It's more out of passion than necessity that my husband and I do everything ourselves, from clothing construction to web
design. Our cat, MIDI, keeps us entertained through the many late working nights. Currently, everything in my line is made in
my San Francisco studio. I look forward to the day when I can hire seamstresses, but until then my incredible Mom helps out.

My designs are inspired by science and science fiction, fantasy, modern design and architecture, and the beauty of the natural world. And my first inspiration is my amazing mom who continues to inspire me, and taught me everything I know about textiles, garment design and sewing.

Whether you're browsing, shopping (thank you!) or considering your own next chapter…I encourage you to take that first step or even big leap toward your own dream. Thank you for visiting!
