Closet Confidential: Zoe Boomer
Published 23/03/2010 | 08:30
Zoe Boomer is fast becoming a hot name on the Irish and international scene. Her collections are built on the most opulent silks in soft muted tones and beautiful tie-dye washes. While evening gowns are a celeb favourite, her separates manage to combine extreme femininity with functionality. With a host of celebrity fans, including Natasha Bedingfield, she’s certainly one to watch.
Favourite designer label
Lanvin. Alber is a genius.
Best bargain buy
A skirt I bought in a village in Italy. It wasn’t super cheap, probably €85, but I've worn it to death, to weddings special events etc. It’s about seven years old but it hasn’t dated and still gets compliments every time I wear it. It's so beautiful.
Most expensive item in your wardrobe
A cashmere zip-up jumper by Mathew Williamson. I didn’t actually realise the price until it was too late! Long story but I didn’t see the zero on the end of the price tag!
Top of your wish list
A new Burberry trench coat. I adore everything Christopher Bailey does but especially the coats.
Most stylist moment
Probably my wedding, I got to have everything exactly how I wanted it, from the location to flowers and decoration. My dress and all the bridesmaids were Zoe Boomer, the whole experience and day was perfect.
I don’t really have one but I love watching the style of women in movies from Audrey Hepburn's era, they are always so well dressed and elegant.
Favourite high street store
I love Zara.
Fashion or style
Style without question.
Finally, what did you have for breakfast this morning!?
A bowl of muesli, flaxseed, fruit and yogurt. Yum!
