After graduating from her undergraduate degree, Sofie interned for fashion houses: Natori, Thakoon and Yigal Azrouel in New York City. Sofie then moved back to the Philippines to take on a fashion buyer job with the SM Group of Companies, the largest retail corporation in the Philippines.

In August 2015, Sofie launched her first contemporary women’s fashion ready to wear label sofie.b.

sofie.b has recently expanded to custom made orders, bridal, children’s wear and exclusively sourced vintage and antique home and accessories, which now elevates the ready to wear brand as a lifestyle brand.
Sofie’s mission is to promote Filipino artisans, and their craft, in contemporary designs for global appreciation.
