Sofia Sanchez Barrenechea, Buenos Aires native, is an NYC based it girl fashionista that works as a creative director for Vogue.
I am so proud to say that she is from Argentina and that she is such a prominent figure in the fashion world. She also works as a fashion consultant, and has worked alongside huge names in the industry like Derek Lam, Jimmy Choo, H Stern amongst many.
Moreover, she founded an online store that showcases Argentine designers -that would otherwise go unnoticed to the international fashion elite. The website, which she started with her equally jet-setting sisters is called Under Our Sky.
The brand's mission Statement reads:
Founder, Sofía Sanchez Barrenechea, having been born and raised in Buenos Aires, felt a keen need to bring her home-country talents beyond borders after years of world traveling. Partnering with her two sisters, Lucia, based between Paris and Sao Paolo, and Catalina, in Buenos Aires, Sofía found the perfect mix and support for this project. Together, the three sisters carefully select the brands, hand pick each piece to sell, and even collaborate with the designers to develop pieces exclusive to Under Our Sky.
The Vogue It girl doesn't only have an amazing sense of style, but she is also a model for various brands and has appeared on several editorials.

What do you think? Sofia has such an inspiring and successful career, and the Under Our Sky website has such a great premise of broadcasting Argentine designers worldwide. It is also so nice that she cofounded the company with her sisters.
Who are your inspirational people?
