Sonja Motley bio

My first experience in the fashion industry was at age 22, as a fashion illustrator on my way to New York. I quickly was sidetracked by a Boulder company of twelve women’s specialty clothing boutiques—they offered me a big job and I took it. I loved it!

“Clutter Free Closet is my business…combining my knowledge of women’s bodies, fashion history, organization and a wonderful skill for dressing women the way they want to look: creative, complete and with effortless style.”

Next stop: Layout artist for a major department store. I moved onto booker and runway trainer for a modeling agency, and an agent for eight illustrators and fashion photographers.

I then took on a sales rep job for 14 lines of clothing and jewelry for a six-state area and showroom. Heading back to the boutique world, I landed at a very high end boutique where in addition to sales, I created the store displays and coordinated special events.

I took a break from clothing to sell diamonds for seven years. But the love of clothing returned, and I went back to another great boutique, for two years. Now…here I am.
