Sofia Elin

FIDM Debut Designer

“My collection is called Rio, since it is inspired by Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. The Carnival is made up of a lavish mix of colors, vivid energy and spirit. The floats, dancers and colorful costumes are a fashion show unto themselves,” says Sofia.

The influences of living in Los Angeles, Spain and traveling internationally are suffused throughout Sofia’s collection.

Her favorite design houses are Oscar de la Renta, Dior, YSL, and Balmain. Since graduating from FIDM, Sofia has been working as an assistant fashion designer, as well as taking advantage of many exciting freelance opportunities.
