Sophie Conran - Designer, Mother & Cook
Sophie Conran is the only daughter of designer and restaurateur Sir Terence Conran and food writer Caroline Conran. Sister to fashion designer Jasper, restaurateurs Tom and Ned and product designer Sebastian, Sophie is married and has 2 wonderful children.
Sophie left school early and worked through a variety of different jobs including working as an apprentice to Stephen Jones the couture milliner, working in Jasper’s fashion empire, running a supper club and delving into the world of interior design with various home and retail projects. She has worked as a buyer for the Design Museum’s shop and set up her own ‘corner shop of the world’ – Wong Singh Jones in Notting Hill.
After a couple of years living in Australia, Sophie returned to the UK and launched Sophie Conran Pies – a gourmet collection of handmade top quality pies – winners of 4 medals at the Great Taste Awards. This lead to her debut cookbook ‘Pies’ published in November 2006, ‘Easy Pies’ for Marks and Spencers and ‘Soups and Stews’ published in 2008.
March 2006 saw the launch of Sophie’s hugely successful range with Portmeirion. The range has won many prestigious awards and is now sold in 33 countries with the range ever expanding.
Sophie now works with many amazing companies creating stunning, well-known ranges. She partnered with Arthouse in 2008 to develop a range of wallpapers for B & Q and now also has luxury wallpaper design pattern books. In 2010 she joined forces with British cutlery manufacturer Arthur Price and launches her second full range design with them in 2016. 2010 was also the start of her relationship with Burgon and Ball and their ever-growing range of garden tools and accessories.
SophieConran.com was launched in 2013 and brings Sophie’s licensed ranges together with exclusive collections that she has developed and curated from suppliers and manufacturers all over the world. Sophieconran.com is now a go-to destination for the whole home with exciting new launches happening all the time.
