The end of August means back to school for students of all ages, including Sophie Berner, our Pinup of the Month for September. For many of you who have browsed our shop in Orlando’s blooming Audubon Park Garden District this Summer, Sophie may be a familiar face behind the counter. Now that Fall has arrived, she is returning to her college studies at Savannah’s renowned SCAD. This semester, all of us at Vince Taj will miss her — and her amazing love for vintage style.

“Since high school, I’ve had a love of vintage fashion,” she says. “Every day it’s a chance to learn something new and an opportunity to express myself through clothing.”

It’s this love that led to her current studies. “Being around fashion has encouraged me to follow my dreams and major in fashion marketing. It’s a way to make my passion for style a permanent part of my life. I’ve had fun playing dress up since I was a kid, and there’s no doubt that I’ll continue until I’m 60 or 70 or older.”

Check out Sophie’s Instagram for the latest photos of her signature style. To see her in other stunning Vince Taj vintage looks throughout the month, be sure to follow Vince on Instagram.
