It all began in 2002 in a backyard farm shed. Liana and Sonya, two sisters, started from sole dressmaking and over the passage of time it has was transformed into a successful online race wear and millinery site known as Sonlia Fashion. Sonlia Fashion in October 2015 closed their outlet and decided to go online to meet the high needs for the one-off creations throughout Australia. Sonlia Fashion has won numerous awards in the field of fashion and now they have customers winning Fashions throughout Australia.
Sonlia creations are all handmade in Mareeba, which includes ingenious Millinery perfect for any Race day. Liana is skilled in Millinery and has done numerous Millinery courses and not only that, but she has also completed a certificate II in Millinery. Liana has attended numerous workshops with Melbourne Milliner Waltraud Reiner and she keeps experimenting with different textures and designs to give Sonlia race wear a new dimension, to keep up with the modern trends and techniques Liana has also attended workshops with National & International Milliners.
Sonya was the fashion designer of the Sonlia Fashion, she has recently retired in her role as dressmaker and embarked on a new career. Sonya created stunning ready to wear outfits for race attending ladies throughout Australia. Each outfit by Sonya was a one-off creations, which guaranteed a unique product.
In Dec 2016 the business expanded and branched off to include other label clothing which offers a vast range of dresses, tops, skirts and pants. We now also have on offer ready to wear race outfits which we only order 1 specific design in and we pair up with one of our Sonlia Fashion one off creation millinery to offer a more exclusive service. New to our collection is a stunning range of Evening Dressing suiting for a Black Tie Event, Ball or Formal, again we decided to only order 1 of each design to try and keep this range as exclusive as possible.
