The Great Designers: Rachel Zoe
Hey loves! I believe everyone interested in fashion has heard about Rachel Zoe and knows who she is! One of the most influential faces in fashion today was raised in Short hills, New Jersey where her parents introduced her to the world of fashion and art at a very young age. After finishing her bachelor degree in psychology and sociology miss Zoe moved to New York to take on fashion! She started as a fashion assistant at a fashion magazine and within two years was promoted to senior fashion editor. This wasn't enough to satisfy the talented lady and she started working with celebrities to create their images and contributing to several fashion magazines.
After a decade in New York city Rachel decided to move to Los Angeles where she could merge the worlds of fasgion and movies, as she was a fan of the old Hollywood glamour since early childhood. Thanks to her love for the vintage style from the 1960's and 1970's her name soon became well-known among celebrities and high profile personalities. Not long after she moved she became famous for the unexpected red carpet looks she creates mixing prints, colors and avant-garde trends. Following her instincts and implementing her love and knowledge of haute couture Rachel Zoe soon became the go-to-stylist of the Hollywood elite.
In October, 2007 her first book was released. "Style A to Zoe" highlights Zoe's insight and experience throughout her career and encompasses everything glamour from home decor to jet setting and from entertainment to getting dressed. With this book Rachel made her style accessible to everyone. A year later, in September, 2008, "The Rachel Zoe Project" debuted on Bravo. The show airs in fifteen countries and documents everything from high profile photo shoots to exclusive events and parties.
Rachel's career as a designer started in 2006 with a collection of luxury handbags for Judith Lieber and in 2009 she launched her own collection of jewelry, bags, scarves, sunglasses and outwear exclusively sold on QVC. The success broke every record and now her brand is globally recognized for its vintage-inspired, sophisticated and sexy allure. The pieces she creates are meant for the modern woman who's got job to do, places to be at and wants to look fabulous at all times!
These are my favorite pieces from the Spring 2012 collection! I would wear each and every single one!
