Sophia E. Berends
all round stylist and branding specialist
Sophia Berends was born and raised in The Netherlands and moved to the Caribbean island of Curacao during high school. In Curacao Sophia fell in love with the culture and nature and the power of bright colors. She spent her free time painting and taking photographs.
Sophia graduated in 2017 and moved to New York City to intern at Lala Anthony collections and Industry Chixx. She assisted the CEO’s at shoots and with the styling and editorial work as well as being in charge of the social media platforms. This job suited her perfectly since in 2013 Sophia became an influencer on Instagram with over 135,000 followers. Being part of the first group of influencers Sophia learned how social media marketing works and she has seen it grow and develop since the beginning.
At the age of 19 Sophia moved back to the Netherlands and started studying all round styling at Academie Artemis in Amsterdam, all whilst running a successful instagram on the side and working as a personal stylist at Hollands biggest department store the Bijenkorf. Sophia’s enthusiasm and eagerness to learn new skills and knowledge helped her come as far as she did and she is looking forward to expanding her skills even more.
