What’s better than finding an awesome vintage piece that is both timeless, and hot? Finding a NEW vintage-inspired piece that is both timeless and hot! Karen Zambos Vintage Couture manages to marry prints and styles of yesterday (think the best of disco meets 1960’s loungewear) with great cuts and fabrics of today.
Designer Zambos has been working in fashion almost all her life, but her career really took off when she began to dye vintage slips and sell them at Tracy Ross in L.A. Like yours truly, Zambos also made a name for herself by turning trash into treasure and reconstructing vintage pieces. Today, her fun and feminine styles mixed with menswear pieces are coveted by the stars, such as Gwen Stefani, Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and the Simpson sisters.
Check out Karen’s website for her wide variety of pieces for her Fall 2006 collection, as well as her “Elegently Waisted” collection of leather belts. I absolutely love the fluidity of her pieces, most of which look like they would flatter almost any figure. Hawt!
