Sofia isn’t the only fashion designer in the Vergara clan: Meet Claudia Daniela, Sofia’s niece and the creative force behind the knitwear line, Violetta Rose! We caught up with the budding designer in New York City to chat about her personal style, what inspires her, and, of course, her aunt, Sofia Vergara.
Kmart Fashion: How would you describe your personal style?
Claudia Daniela: Definitely feminine, but always comfortable. That was the inspiration behind my knitwear line, Violetta Rose. With anything I wear though, I’m about wearing pieces that embrace my body shape and enhance my best assets. As Sofia likes to say, “Work what you got!”
KF: Sofia has amazing style – how has she influenced yours?
CD: Sofia is always glam. I call her “Lady Tiger” because even when she’s just at home, she wears these amazing printed caftans. She’s always encouraging me to be more glamorous in my everyday style.
KF: What is your favorite piece from Sofia’s collection?
CD: I love the color-block ponte sheath dress from her holiday collection! The black side panels are so flattering and the dress works on so many different body types.
KF: Let’s chat signature style pieces – what’s yours?
CD: Black leggings! Now that I live in New York City, I have an excuse to wear black all the time! When I want to dress up though, I love wearing the black Ponte pants from Sofia’s collection. They’re so versatile and are definitely a must-have for any woman.
KF: As someone who’s stylish and surrounds herself with all things fashion, could you share your style philosophy with our readers?
CD: Let your individuality shine in your style! Buy what you like and make it your own.
