Behind the Scenes, Pre Spring Photo Shoot

This is a little bit of a sneak-peek at our Pre Spring Collection. The jumper shown on the model is amazing - so cute, very easy to wear, and available in some great colors.

Karen is shown above styling the model with some of her amazing vintage jewelry. The photo shoot took place Friday, July 24th, and went very well because of our great team. The whole shoot was wrapped up in under 8 hours, and we have our amazing shots already done only 4 days later!

Karen's Influences

We thought it would be interesting to discuss the influences and inspiration that went into the creation of the Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Fall 2009 Collection. Karen Zambos is constantly inspired by elements of everyday life, specifically real women and the different ways that they put together and accessorize their outfits.

For this collection (and as with her line as a whole), Karen was inspired by the easy wearability of vintage fashion-she loves the worn in, owned-forever feel of vintage clothing as well as the fact that it is often made of unique fabrics and filled with amazing patterns and colors. Karen incorporated her love of vintage and vintage inspired pieces into the fall collection.

The Fall 2009 Collection features bold prints and colors such as coral and red, yet is anchored by more traditional fall colors and fabrics. Karen incorporated different textures and fun yet wearable prints into the Fall 2009 Collection, which resulted in a fun, fresh, wearable collection. The collection includes easy dresses and silky tops which are perfect for day or night and for layering, as well as a line of cozy, oversize sweaters which will be great as the nights begin to cool down towards the end of summer. The Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Fall 2009 Collection will be available in stores and online soon!

Keeping Up With Karen Zambos Vintage Couture

It has been a very busy last few weeks here at Karen Zambos Vintage Couture. Next week "Team Zambos" is heading to China for a whirlwind trip to attend meetings, visit with our distributers and manufacturers, and hopefully get in a little sightseeing. We will definitely post photos and blog about the experience! Last Friday we had a successful photo shoot for our Pre Spring collection, and everything looks amazing. The main colors of the collection are mint and coral, with some great neutrals as well. We are already excited for next spring (and this summer is not even over yet!). We will post a sneak peek photo from the shoot in the next few days. We have been extra busy sending out our orders for Fall and Holiday 2009, and there are some really amazing pieces which have been selling like crazy, such as our Nina Skirt (shown in the photo above). The clothes are making us long for fall when we can dress in cozy sweaters and soft layering pieces, as well as dress up for events and parties in the fabulous dresses and party-ready pieces from Karen Zambos Vintage Couture. Check out to shop the collections. Thanks for checking in, we will blog soon!
