Born in Toronto to a Japanese mother and Canadian father, Zoe Lee is a British footwear and accessories designer, based in London. A graduate of Central St Martins and The Royal College of Art, Zoe was tutored by Manolo Blanhik and began her career in 2003 at Vivienne Westwood. Since then Zoe has worked with a number of British designers and in January 2012 she launched her own eponymous collection of luxury women's shoes.
For her own collection Zoe has sourced the finest of materials and used one of the most prestigious Italian factories, in the Venice area, to manufacture and develop the collection.
The Zoe Lee collection is a luxury footwear line, which focuses on silhouette, texture and unusual use of material. The collection will offer a beautifully crafted product that stands the test of time by not being led by current trends. Whilst it is possible to find timeless durable pieces amongst the collections of more established labels, this is an entire line of modern footwear that offers this as a whole concept. The label's focus is on high quality strong materials and leathers that will endure and become more beautiful with each wear. This includes a restraint in over-designing and allowing quality and silhouette to take precedence. Zoe Lee products are modern, timeless wearable pieces with a hand finished look. Textures over muted colours, stand out metallic, foil printed suedes, embossed vegetable tans and gold finishings.
