Sophie Albou grew up in the fashion industry after her parents co-founded the “Le Garage” brand of shirts in the 1980's. While studying management and journalism, her own passion for fashion began to emerge. She continued her studies in Fashion Business at IFM and later completed an internship at Azzedine Alaïa before officially joining the family business. Later, she founded Paul & Joe, which is named after her two sons. The Paul & Joe woman resembles its creator - active and bubbly. She loves to travel and mix and match her own wardrobe, and to accessorize according to her moods. Paul & Joe is above all a state of mind: fashion, friendly, spontaneous, happy.
