Freelance designer Sonja Bochmann designs footwear collections for luxury houses as well as for small independent start-ups.
The German-born designer graduated from the Marangoni Fashion School in Milan and started her career working as an in-house designer for international fashion companies. Her passion for shoes made her move in 2007 to San Mauro Pascoli, Italy, where she started working side by side with Sergio Rossi and other masters of the Italian luxury shoe industry. In 2010 Sonja opened her own design studio, ever since she has been working for a diverse portfolio of clients.
Her service spectrum ranges from trend research to production set-up with a strong focus on women’s shoes.
As a teacher at the International Footwear school CERCAL and professional trainer for companies such as Baldinini, she passionately passes on her knowledge to professionals and students from all over the world.
