Long before Sonja became a household name from her television appearances, she was a “mover and shaker” among New York City high-rollers and international jet-setters. Sonja was working towards her bachelor’s in marketing at The Fashion Institute of Technology and in-between her studies, she travelled the globe as a fashion model and actress. While making her home base New York City she also lived and worked in California, Colorado, Italy, and France. Sonja was voted Top 21 Best Dressed at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week by New York Magazine 2011 and was a Weekly Star Magazine Fashion Critic. After pursuing fashion retailing and wholesale in New York’s Garment District, Sonja became a Restaurant/Hotel and Fashion Luxury Brand Consultant for top establishments across the country. Whether representing an Italian custom tailor or consulting a new hot spot for Donald Trump, Sonja was the go to “it girl.”
Her international client-base relied on the expertise and guidance she provided. Sirio Maccioni of Le Cirque said “very few people have her talent in our business.” In fact John H. Mariani, author and Food and Travel Correspondent for Esquire Magazine, labeled her as “The Straw that Stirs the Drink” in the early 90’s. This is a moniker that still holds true today across the storyboards of Sonja’s life and career. “Everyday Luxury” is the perfect definition of Sonja Morgan’s style. Her fashion line features high quality fabrics, signature trimmings, and ageless silhouettes. Her Tipsy Girl Prosecco and Rose are made from the finest grapes from Italy and perfect additions for any gatherings. “I focused on the items that are essential to my lifestyle brands, only the best will do”. So it was only natural that she would team up with restaurateur Peter Guimaraes to develop the Tipsy Girl concept which includes wines, spirits and restaurant-bar-lounges.
Fresh cuisine featuring tapas and sharing plates along with unique cocktail recipes will make Tipsy Girl your favorite place to spend the evening. Our late night ambiance with live entertainment, djs and dancing will keep you and your friends partying till closing. Our wines and spirits line presently consists of a sparkling rose and prosecco. Vodka, tequila and other cordials to follow. Tipsy Girl wines are made in Veneto Italy. This region is known for the production of some of the best wines in the world and Tipsy Girl will not disappoint this legacy. Our vision is to open Tipsy Girl bars across the country, with our first location in Hartford, Ct. New York City, Miami, Vegas and Chicago to follow. Watch us on the hit Bravo television show, The Real Housewives of New York, along with Sonja Morgan and the rest of the housewives.
