Australian-born but certainly a child of the world, 26 year-old fashion designer Zoe Twitt has been garnering a steadily growing number of eyes for her designs each season. What draws us to Zoe, even though it is so early in her career, is difficult to pin down. It’s partially because the leap in sophistication of concept and execution between her Fall 2010 and her Spring 2011 collections was so great, but that’s not entirely it. She designs what she’s feeling at the time. Her work mirrors her with an intimate closeness that creates a vulnerability to her as a designer that makes her very engaging. This also makes her collections vary greatly from season to season, which is a very special kind of fashion daring, but perhaps sound because the core of each collection is Zoe herself. The collection you see in this shoot is from a romantic young woman touched by romance. It is an artistic expression of her heart and mind. Zoe has a powerful combination of imagination and technical skills. She does all of the unique touches and shows the kind of quality workmanship that makes her a designer to be taken seriously.
