Founder, Sonata Rapalyte
How/Where did it all Begin?
Born In Lithuania, Sonata Rapalyte started her love affair with beautiful fabrics when she was just a small child, dancing around her mother’s bedroom - whilst dressing up in lavish dresses - "It made me feel pretty and... happy..."
Sonata first picked up a needle and thread at the tender age of seven. She always knew where her passion lay, but really came into her own when she moved to London and worked for a string of lingerie designers including Damaris with whom Sonata launched the first ever Damaris collection. Living and working in London for a number of years Sonata realised there was a market for beautiful, luxurious lingerie. With ambition, she decided to create her own lingerie line.
With a love for travel as well as her passion for lingerie, Sonata moved to the Sardinian coast, it was there that Sonata designed her entire first collection, she says of her inspiration - "I was surrounded by unmistakable and breathtaking beauty on the Island..... It was so inspirational. I used to take a boat and sail out to the middle of the ocean, sit in the sun with the breeze, waves - and just design"
