Shortly after graduating from LaSalle College in Fashion design and acquiring experience as an intern in trends at a style office in Paris, Sofia Sokoloff will in turn be hired as a seamstress for the Cirque du Soleil and designer for La Senza, once in Canadian soil. She will later go back to school to adequately respond to entrepreneurship’s call. It was in 2012, as she was completing her bachelor's degree in industrial management, that she decided to launch Sokoloff Lingerie.

Of course, the designer’s experience strongly oriented her professional choice, but it is rather the feeling of a market to fill that inspired her to join the lingerie industry. Halfway between industrial range and high-end underwear too often unaffordable, Sokoloff products meet young, mature and trendy women’s requirements: a handmade quality product at an affordable price.

Skilfully designed by Sofia, Sokoloff Lingerie’s collections aim to represent a woman’s authenticity. Through the strong, creative and eclectic personalities of its muses, the company wishes to promote a powerful and healthy image of feminine beauty, to which it is easy to relate.
