1. What motivated you to team up with QVC for Styled by Joe Zee?
I’ve always loved everything that QVC stood for. I love the idea that I could bring all the incredible trends that I see on the runway, on the streets, on the red carpet and break it down in a wearable, stylish way for women everywhere and be able to dress women around the country of all ages and sizes. That was important to me that smart, stylish clothes be available for everyone.
2. Who are some of your fashion icons?
I have many fashion icons, as different people inspire me for different reasons. I love the simplicity and elegance of someone like Michelle Obama and the daring risk of someone like Kate Moss and the wittiness of someone like Sarah Jessica Parker. I love that fashion can define a woman’s personality in such a subtle way.
3. If you could give your 22-year-old self any advice, what would it be?
Ha! That was the year I moved to NYC, so it was a pivotal year for me, as it was the beginning of a new chapter and I wanted to move to NYC and work in fashion and magazines. I think I would have advised myself to have the trust and believe in myself. It was a tough time settling in to a new crazy city and a new world but I was determined. A little bit of reassurance from the present me would have been great.
