Zoe’s collection has been picked up by several major retailers in the US and is about to sign with two UK stores – details of which are yet to be released. The line is receiving rave reviews for its sharply tailored 70′s-inspired trouser suits, faux fur and ‘strong’ outerwear.
Last month, there was a kerfuffle over a sequined black and white dress she designed, when a reporter from Teen Vogue noticed it was almost identical to a vintage item Zoe had used in a shoot for the magazine.
Of the controversy, Zoe told Style.com: “I’ve been subconsciously building this collection in my mind for a long time. There are a million vintage pieces that have inspired me, and every other designer in the world.”
One of the line’s best sellers so far is a black batwing top with rows of gold sequins. The collection launches in US stores for Autumn 2011 and, judging by the hype, looks to be an instant sell-out.
