Hello Sophia here- I am a wedding dressmaker and Pin-up model. Dressmaking has always been a big passion of mine. I love being able to bring my ideas to life! My designs are inspired by the 1950's Hollywood gowns. Having the gift of making clothes is very useful being a pin up model, as I make my own costumes & clothes for events. I have a BA in Fashion and have been making dresses for 20 years.
