Shivonne started designing and sewing at an early age learning from her grandmother who was a seamstress in Gasparillo, Trinidad. Realizing her call to the Fashion Industry, she migrated to Florida to attend Miami International University of Art & Design to pursue a degree in Fashion Design.

After graduating from Miami International University, she continued with her exciting journey in the Fashion World.

She began working in the wardrobe department of Feld Entertainment, making and refurbishing costumes for Ringling Bros Circus and Disney on Ice. Shortly after, she was hired by a well known bridal company where she worked for almost ten years.

Recently, Shivonne launched her own collection, Sofie Couture Inc. incorporating her distinct aesthetic. This collection has her signature of femininity and glamour with pieces which are comfortable and elegant. The creation consists of modern daytime looks and evening glamour with a touch of class. Shivonne has traveled extensively gaining a wealth of knowledge in the industry which has helped her in designing her line of clothing.

The love of fashion remains the source of inspiration and this collection is synonymous with the sophisticated, fun woman.
When asked what her inspiration is, she replied,

“I strive to make fashion that is timeless and always elegant.”
