Sophie is quite a character–uncompromising and loyal, in friendship and in life. When she was working here in Paris with me, it was always very intense; we worked a lot but we had a lot of fun as well, because she was always full of energy and positivity. I was so happy for Sophie when I saw Mrs. Obama wearing one of her dresses.
Sophie has always been deeply determined, and she has worked greatly for her success. She has created a lovely style, feminine, elegant, but unassuming. She deserves all her success and I’m incredibly happy for her. She began as my right hand, and now she is my friend.

“Sophie Theallet….has among the best color sense of any designer
in New-York or Europe. Some old pros say it reminds them
of Saint Laurent’s.”
