‘RHONY’: Is Sonja Morgan’s Clothing Line Real?

In 2008 Bravo premiered The Real Housewives of New York City. Since then the cast has become very popular, and viewers have gotten to know and love the famous housewives pretty well. Sonja Morgan became a permanent housewife in season three. As Bravo simply put it, “Sonja Morgan is a fixture of New York City society.” Before the star took on her reality show endeavors she had a successful career as a model. Since she has joined the series, Morgan’s reputation to stir the pot and spice things up speaks for itself. However, Morgan definitely has an entrepreneurial and business-driven side to her as well. See why everyone is talking about Morgan and her storyline.

Sonja Morgan from The Real Housewives of New York City had a fashion show of her clothing line during New York Fashion Week

So many viewers from the show appreciate Morgan’s style, according to Elle. It only makes sense that she would create a new clothing line. Sonja By Sonja Morgan is the affordable and cute clothing and jewelry line that Morgan recently created and designed. The clothing line is a clear reflection of the famous housewife’s fun and stylish personality. On the website, you can even see Morgan wearing some of the pieces from her day-to-day life. Not to mention, the prices are pretty manageable. 

This past September Morgan got to premier her new clothing line during New York Fashion Week. Footage from season 12 of The Real Housewives of New York showed Morgan chaotically running around. The stress of the fashion show definitely seemed to be getting to Morgan. According to OK Magazine, sources shared that her frustrations were very visible throughout the presentation and Morgan was even seen yelling behind the scenes. Morgan and New York City usually go hand-in-hand, but Morgan really seemed to struggle when it came to the New York Fashion Week.

Fans and viewers of The Real Housewives of New York City had mixed reviews in regard to Morgan’s fashion show. However, some fans expressed that they believed the clothing line is actually fake or a ripoff. A Reddit thread captured some of the frustration that many fans and viewers are feeling. One user stated, “Sonja’s brand is literal garbage. Aside from her beauty line and some of her ‘signature collection,’ literally everything on her site is from AliExpress.” This viewer didn’t like the style of the clothing line or how it appears to be functioning at its core.

The user went on to explain, “95% of everything on her site is dropshipped. That means that when you place an order on her site, you’re effectively placing an order directly through AliExpress, and AliExpress is shipping you your item from a ton of different suppliers and warehouses across China. Sonja doesn’t touch the inventory except to buy one sample, then give it to Sonja to wear. No one is checking if the bulk shipment is OK quality at all. She is charging hundreds of dollars to be a middle man and is doing effectively no additional work.” If these accusations were true, Morgan’s reputation and clothing line could greatly suffer. 

What have been some of Sonja Morgan’s past business endeavors? 

Sonja By Sonja Morgan isn’t the first clothing line this reality television star has taken on. In 2015, the housewife started the clothing line Sonja Morgan New York. TipsyGirl was another business endeavor Morgan has brought to life over the years. TipsyGirl is a Prosecco and sparkling Rosé line. Morgan is also famous for talking about her groundbreaking toaster oven and recipes on The Real Housewives of New York City. Even though the toaster oven never came to fruition, the reality television star is known to share a recipe or two based on her well-known business idea. 

Despite the controversy surrounding Morgan’s clothing line she has still managed to capture America’s attention with her unique and innovative toaster oven recipes. Morgan’s fans and viewers are looking forward to what the New York City housewife will do next.
