SOPHIA BENYAHIA

Growing up watching a sophisticated and elegant Moroccan mother practice the ritual of designing traditional garments for many occasions with master artisans in their ateliers is a strong memory, which Sophia Benyahia holds to this day.

Accompanying her to historic souks in search of unique fabrics and delicate hand crafted trimmings to embellish each garment, Sophia had seen and learnt the production of creating a kaftan unfold from an early age.

Inspired by the beautiful process and techniques involved in creating these pieces of art, Sophia Benyahia offers a wealth of creative direction to her collections inspired by traditional Moroccan tailoring. Her touch is sophisticated, traditional yet glamorous, embodying her roots through fashion.

A creative spirit with limitless boundaries, her approach to design is fresh and original without forgetting the luxurious and regal history that compliments the aesthetics of her kaftans. Inspired by her surroundings and cultural aspects of her country, references of Moroccan tiling, stone carvings and henna designs are absorbed into her ideas for each collection.

Understanding the evolution which traditional garments can undertake without losing their age old charm has allowed Sophia Benyahia to design a collection for women who are fashion forward and cosmopolitan. Incorporating simple aspects of western designs into her looks, she has ensured the signature Moroccan kaftan style is at the heart of every design.

Sophia Benyahia, like her customer, is women who is stylish yet traditional, confident yet modest and allows her personality to shine through in her clothes and the detail which goes into every piece in each collection.
