Sofia Vera is a luxury ready-to-wear label designed by French designer Sophie Redhon, specialising in creating timeless wardrobe pieces for the sophisticated woman, from the most luxurious natural fibre fabrics.
The Sofia Vera story began unexpectedly, with a chance encounter some years ago during a personal adventure exploring Indochina. Founder Sophie Redhon was introduced to Lotus silk fabric, and was instantly struck by the beauty, feel & uniqueness of this exquisite rare textile, made entirely from the stem of the Lotus Flower. 100% natural and made by skilled master artisan hands without any polluting inputs nor machinery, she couldn’t help but fall in love. She started her brand called Lotus Paradis which became Sofia Vera in 2023!
French by birth with Sardinian Italian & Basque roots, Sophie's upbringing in tropical countries like Niger & Ivory Coast paved the way for her adventurous soul and passion for all things of natural and authentic beauty.
Her designs are made with the purpose of bringing to life her admiration for timeless chic, catering to the sophisticated woman through flattering feminine collections all made from rare and luxurious 100% natural fabrics.
With authenticity being one of Sofia Vera’s core values, we aim to be transparent about how we conduct our business. Our desire is to continuously educate our community as well as ourselves, on the reality of the world of fashion and how to be better.
At Sofia Vera we do not mass produce, we make every garment upon order. This approach means that no clothes are made in excess, which benefits an already overloaded planet. It also means that we can take extra special care when making a new piece, ensuring that the quality meets our highest standards. We only ensure to always have sufficient stocks of our fabrics, since fabric production takes up most of the garment production time, and we know that fabric will never go to waste.

We have traceability all the way back to the thread for Lotus Silk fabric and can therefore know the exact environmental impact and social practices. We are proud to say that Lotus Silk fabric is made entirely without any environmentally-damaging inputs or processes, making it the most sustainable fabric in the world.
