Now that award season is over and the fashion shows have come to a close, I caught up with Ana Teixeira de Sousa, my friend and the woman behind the sophisticated evening wear label, Sophia Kah. Here, we disucss her inspiration and the celebrity she would most love to dress.
What does Sophia Kah mean to you?
Sophia Kah is an expression of my taste for fiercely feminine, exceptionally made clothes.
Who is the ideal Sophia Kah woman?
Self confident, intriguing, playful, feminine and fun – a woman who claims her rights to be noticed and admired. My dresses come as a powerful accessory that should enhance a woman’s strong personality, as well as her inner beauty.
What inspires your own day-to-day style?
I pick up on street style in cities like NYC, Milan or Madrid. My style is definitely very feminine and I am a big fan of classics pieces, such as a timeless Birkin bag, a nice pair of jeans, or a well cut black blazer – with that you can never go wrong.
Who are your favourite designers?
I love the work of Josep Font, Creative Director at Del Pozo – super modern, feminine and still very chic.
What has been your career highlight?
When Florence Welsh wore one of my dresses – I really love her.
Where do you find your inspiration for Sophia Kah?
Travel mostly – my inspiration can come from different places – a city, a place I visit, a good art exhibition, or woman I admire…
After launching in 2010, Sophia Kah has already seen an impressive amount of red carpet attention, including most recently at the BAFTAS on the beautiful Sophie Kennedy Clark, from Philomena. What other actresses would you love to dress?
Diane Kruger. I love her style.
What’s next for Sophia Kah?
We are expanding in to new markets and for the first time, we will be presenting on the official calendar of London Fashion Week in September!
Exciting news! With already such celebrated clientele, we imagine that Sophia Kah will have quite the lineup on the FROW…Watch this space –
