About Zoe Lem
Your wedding day is one of the biggest days of your life but many of us girls nowadays are so independent, career focused and have such high standards that we wait a little longer before deciding to get married. Your wedding day is therefore much more about maintaining your personality and creating a day that represents who you are in a silhouette that feels natural to your own style.
Following 15 years as fashion and celebrity stylist Zoe Lem has created a collection of dresses celebrating the classic vintage styles from the 1920s to the 1960s along with the ideal body shapes for each era.
Zoe has worked in the vintage scene for many years but has noticed that though it has now become much more accessible and covered by mainstream media very few girls actually understand what the defining silhouettes and shapes are from each of the eras not least which would best suit their shape.
‘Many brides come with a decade that they love and are desperate to recreate’ says Zoe ‘but unfortunately it doesn’t always love them, so it is best to find the perfect shape from whichever era and then adapt it, style it to suit the bride style, taste and wedding ideas.’
Zoe offers a relaxed but well informed service utilising her many years as a stylist dressing celebrities such as Cat Deeley, Trinny & Susannah and Myleene Klass, models and real women.
