Born and raised in Kigali – Rwanda, Sonia Mugabo has been passionate about fashion from an early age. As a child, she was fascinated by the design process; from colors, to cuts and textures.
As an outstanding scholar she took several creative classes which confirmed her love for design. It was this love of creation that encouraged Sonia to pursue a degree in the arts. In 2013, after graduating from university she returned to her native country Rwanda to make a name for herself as a fashion entrepreneur.
For the past 10 years, her eponymous brand employs local artisans to make high quality "Made in Rwanda" clothes. Focusing on versatility, detail and fabric, Sonia Mugabo builds a conscious brand centered on elegant and timeless creations.
A pioneer of Rwanda’s fashion industry, she is setting the standard for Rwandan fashion in global and local markets.
