Sonia was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, grew up in Connecticut, and spent her childhood summer vacations in
Portugal, where her parents are from, and where she got her European sense of style. Sonia’s passion for fashion
was evident at an early age…whether she was helping her mother with her sewing, or designing paper clothes for
her paper dolls, or designing her high school prom dress. She debuted her first collection of dresses during her
senior year at Boston College, and after graduation, was hired as a buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City.
Sonia quickly moved up the corporate ladder at Saks, where she spent 13 successful years, and then was recruited
by Victoria’s Secret to oversee merchandising and design for the swimsuit division. After having two children, Sonia
decided it was time to fulfill her lifelong dream of creating her own company and so… PRETA LOBUE was born.
