The Daily Telegraph – 15 May 2006
Violinist Sophie Solomon has a sense of style that is as wild and flamboyant as the way she plays music.

Sophie Solomon is known as the Keith Richards of the violin.
But, at first glance, it is hard to see what the strapping six-footer could have in common with the Rolling Stones guitarist. At 27, she is less than half his age and her blond hair is cropped into punkish spikes. But when she attacks her 19th century violin as if it was a Fender Telecaster, and begins leaping around the stage like a whirling dervish, occasionally pausing to swig from a bottle of Jack Daniels, it is not hard to understand how she earned her sobriquet.

Her “look”, she says, is as much a reflection of where she’s been as how she moves on stage. “I’d say my style is tribal plus creative. It’s all a mix really – just like my music.”

Sophie Solomon wears a jacket featuring a 19th century suzani embroidery and an ikat-weave silk skirt, both Tamerlane’s Daughters.
