Welcome to my Atelier!
Hi there! I’m Sofía, the designer & pattern maker behind The Atelier. I love working with lingerie, swimwear and bridal brands, helping them stand out with unique designs and carefully crafted garments.
In the past few years, I’ve been lucky to collaborate with brands from around the world like Desigual, Understatement, Body Editions and Vanity Fair. I also have a soft spot for new brands, as I know first-hand how hard it can be to find your place in this industry! I did the whole brand journey myself in 2017 when I started my own couture lingerie label, which is currently focused on creating exclusive made-to-measure items.
Aside from my hands-on work in the industry, I also teach Lingerie & Corsetry at several design schools like IDEP Barcelona. I love seeing my students improve and, in turn, I feel like I learn too from their fresh and spontaneous approach. Let me tell you, teaching is so fun!
As a whole, I feel like my work experience has given me a solid skill set in design and pattern drafting, and made me aware of the challenges most brands face. So, I’ll be able to help you through all steps of creating an excellent product: from design and fabric research to product development, including pattern making, grading and professional tech packs that factories can understand.
