Sophia’s initial foray into the ‘fashion industry’ was through selling a few personally curated items on her eBay account. As her collection began to develop a cult following, she started her own online fashion retailer called Naughty Gal, and has since become known as one of the most innovative and important tastemakers in fashion. Now as CEO, she has led Naughty Gal to become one of the most popular online retailers and is expanding to brick and mortar sites. They opened their first retail storefront on Los Angeles’ famous Melrose Avenue. Sophia also has published a book, #GIRLBOSS , that explores her personal story and offers advice on entrepreneurship and provides guidance for young women starting their careers.
