I get to make women feel empowered and beautiful. In a world where we're so often pitted against one another, I think that's really special.
Sophie started her career by winning a coveted apprenticeship at Royal Opera House as a Costume and Footwear Technician. During her time she gained a wide range of expertise working with the unparalleled quality of the costumes and knowledge of those working in Covent Garden. She spent her final 6 months in the ladies workroom, learning and honing her craft from some of the best makers in the world.
Designing veils is more than a sketch.
It's about real connection, that depth of understanding with a bride, and creating a piece that will not only be beautiful on the day, but treasured in years to come.
After completing her apprenticeship, Sophie went onto a bridal boutique in Central London, learning the couture techniques. She then landed a job making for Disney's Aladdin. She created over 150 intricately beaded headdresses for both stage and screen, for productions around the world. She also worked on many productions such as Phantom of the Opera for Paris and Game of Thrones.
Her meticulous attention to design and detail set her on a path of creativity to set up Unveiled by Sophie in 2017.
Within two months of running the company full time, Unveiled was featured in Vogue magazine.
From setting up Unveiled from my bedroom, to being featured in Vogue. It was a real pinch me moment
