Going Vogue. Living Vogue. Being Vogue.

As a 16 year old living outside of Washington, D.C., I am eager to express myself in a world of emerging fashion and conservative style. “Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.” – Yves Saint Laurent

Karen Zambos is a fashion designer who is originally from Chicago, but relocated to Los Angeles. She has always been inspired by the comfort and originality of vintage clothing, so she decided to fill the gap in the industry and for Vintage Couture. She designs for her Karen Zambos Couture clothing line as well as her belt brand, “Elegantly Waisted.” Her designs have been seen on major celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Kourtney Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, and Kelly Ripa. I am in love with the jeweled back dress as well as the long sleeve, pale pink flare dress-so original!

Catherine Deane is known for her detailed evening and bridal wear, as well as her custom creations. Her gowns are delicate with details such as layers of chiffon, pin-tucked ruffles, and dainty gold chains. Her brand is aimed at a vast age group, anyone from 18-45. Brides are one of the brands major custom groups, which is why Catherine makes all gowns available in oyster white. A highly worked Catherine Deane creation will run for about $4,000. Catherine Deane is a favorite of mine, as I have always admired her work. I love how all of her pieces have a balance of fluidity as well as rigidity. The draping of each dress is absolutely divine and hangs perfectly off the model, while the ruching and chain detail highlight the feminine features.
