Nassif was born into a family of seamstresses, and while those skills left her long ago, she still has a strong appreciation for truly sumptuous fabric that is expertly sewn to construct a lovely finished product with a flattering fit. After retiring from a successful career founding home goods companies like Caldrea and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Nassif became frustrated by the lack of well-made sleepwear and loungewear available.
“When I finally had time to relax, it was impossible to find elegant and comfortable sleepwear. In my search I learned I had three choices: frumpy flannel nightgowns, tart wear that was not made for lounging, or my own personal fallback, broken-in athletic wear,” recalled the Sophia Graydon founder. “I quickly realized my retirement was over. I had to create a line that perfects the art of leisure through beautiful pieces that don’t sacrifice style, quality or comfort,” continued Nassif.
