About Us

The Skirt Company   |   The Designer   



In the beginning was the silk worm, the cottonseed and the lamb and those three had a purpose, their purpose was to produce silk, cotton and wool; enough silk, cotton and wool for us to design skirts for the brand we call Sofistafunk.

The same would be said about a babe who'd be born to become a lady, that lady would inherit the creativity to become a Skirt designer; she would combine her natural talents with those natural fibers to create an uninhibited, ageless and zero waste collection for ladies who love to funk.

This Holiday Season allow us to introduce you to...

#SkirtStories

Like an anthology and designed for layering our collection of Skirts are for story-telling and mood making by the woman who pens to the pages of her own book.   

Just as a haiku some of our bottom frocks are short, while like an epic others are Long and dramatic.

but surely all are Uninhiited enough to allow the wearer to narrate her own fable.

The Sofistafunk label was born in 1999 to Arlinda McIntosh and daughter-in-law Cheshire Boone-Mickens.  Bold, feminine and ultra versatile, the styles explore the alliances between the Elizabethan era through the Victorian period, on to the fields of the southern North Carolina terrain, creating a contemporary yet couture aesthetic; poetic in design the pieces awaken the memories of playing dress up all while maintaining the ability to transition from 9-5 to an after work affair with ease.

Best known for their uninhibited and ultra girly approach to skirt making, the label has become a favorite amongst clients for their timeless, grand and picturesque creations. "Our skirts are designed to make a lady feel as if she's about to attend any Royal event, but meant to be worn everyday on the streets of her casually elegant life." -Arlinda M. designer

So from this day all the way to where your imagination rules, Sofistafunk lives to serve as a reminder that "Life is a gift, meant to be celebrated everyday, Run, Skip, Dance - Wear what makes you feel happy and Do whatever makes you feel free"- Today is yours, Congratulations!

In our efforts to be more environmentally responsible, 99% of our silk, cotton and wool cuttings are re-purposed into other useable fashion moments, so they never reach the already overflowing land fields.
