About Us

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 fashion designer; she would combine her natural talents with those natural fibers to create an uninhibited and ageless collection for ladies who love to funk.
To everything there is a Season, this Season the ladies at Sofistafunk introduce you to...

A collection of skirts and accessories designed for the woman who's hips sway to the beat of her own music and her personal mantra is "attend but never blend"

The Sofistafunk label was born in 1999 to Arlinda McIntosh and daughter-in-law Cheshire Boone-Mickens. Bold, feminine and ultra versatile, the designs explore the alliances between the Elizabethan era through the Victorian period, and on to the late forties, creating a contemporary yet couture aesthetic; poetic in design the pieces awaken the memories of being a little girl 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 the ball, 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.
