In addition to attracting legendary European fashion houses and cult-cool labels, LA is also a magnet for fresh international talent, like 27-year-old Lebanese designer Charbel Zoé. Now that he's dressed J. Lo, Fergie, and Golden Globes girl Greer Grammer, the couturier is moving one step closer to his famous fans with his first stateside showroom in West Hollywood.
Located at Bella Fabrics's former space in the overlapping West Hollywood Design and Melrose Districts, the 1,200-square-foot space will showcase the young talent's Swarovski-bedazzled stunners, red carpet-ready evening gowns, and more made-to-measure numbers. Zoé's LA appointment-only atelier will make its official debut Tuesday, March 17th; to get dressed by the designer for your next fancy event, call (310) 975-5117.
