Sonja Morgan is a fixture of New York City society. She got her start modeling in Paris and Milan and studying marketing at the Fashion Institute of Technology, representing high-end luxury brands while keeping her Berkshire-bred sensibilities and values. Sonja used her business acumen and social skills—along with rock-and-rollers, royalty, and the power set—to launch several award-winning luxury fashion brands and successful hot spots across the country. Sonja captured America's attention with her groundbreaking toaster oven recipes, which inspired the all-encompassing international fashion lifestyle brand she plans to grow globally with her partners. In 2015, Sonja launched Sonja Morgan New York, her signature fashion line at New York Fall Fashion Week. In 2017 Sonja introduced her heritage brand shoe line Sonja Morgan by French Sole. In 2018, she added Sonja By Sonja Morgan, a curated selection of affordable luxury fashions and accessories under $200 and her recently released Sonja Morgan New York Parfum, a unisex scent of exquisitely aged natural essential oils.
As a divorced mother, Sonja dedicates her time to her college aged daughter, her businesses, and her philanthropy, which includes work with children, artists, the LGBTQ+ community, and animals. A lover of the arts, Sonja enjoys producing, writing, and performing her inspirational "caburlesque" sing song skits at her Sonja in the City events that benefit her charities. In 1990 at the St. Regis Hotel as a Singular Sensation Sonja received an award for her charity work as a young single woman alongside Vanessa Noel and Mira Sorvino. She received a New York State Senate award in July 2013 for her entrepreneurial business savvy, her use of the media, and, again, her charity work. She was interviewed on those topics and her "Philanthrocapitalism" by The Economist Magazine at the New York Stock Exchange for Bloomberg TV. She made her Off-Broadway acting debut in 2016’s Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man, in which Sonja was able to play her alter-ego in the character of a sexually repressed teacher while still incorporating her signature bawdy, sexy sense of humor that viewers know her for. In 2018, Sonja continued her comedic climb with Improv Asylum and touring 2021 at City Vineyards highlighting her Sonja Sangria red and white wine at the venue cross country. In 2019, Sonja by Sonja Morgan launched at Century 21 Stores (15) and Sonja as their Chief Lifestyle Officer. In 2021, Sonja by Sonja Morgan, launched ready-to-wear fashion at Walmart.
Sonja's motto remains, "Live each day as if you have nothing to lose and everything to gain,” and she is embracing a new chapter centered on self-love and self-care.
