From freelance stylist to The Rachel Zoe Project to creating her own label, the iconic American celebrity fashionista has certainly moved mountains to etch her name into fashion lore. Without any formal fashion training, Rachel Zoe started off as a fashion assistant for YM magazine and accelerated up the editorial ladder. She then went off and became a freelance stylist. Her fashion guidebook in 2007, “Style A To Zoe,” became an instant hit leading to her hugely popular show on Bravo that aired in 2008. Surrounding herself in fashion, it was only natural to begin designing. Her luxury handbag collaboration with Judith Leiber in 2006 started it all. She then gave a hand at QVC creating the Luxe line with jewelry, accessories and outerwear. Rachel Zoe then launched her own fashion line in 2011. The collections draw upon vintage inspiration with patterns and designs encapsulated by the spirit of the 1960’s and 70’s.
