Reinventing the allure of bohemian charm, Karen Zambos creates a fun and flirty line that appeals to the confident and carefree spirit. Describing her personal style as eclectic and diverse, Karen designs her pieces – ranging from classic jackets to easy-going dresses – based on the textures and fabrics that entice her.
The Chicago native relocated to Los Angeles where she first explored her fashion wits at the contemporary boutique, Tracey Ross. As a buyer and creative stylist in each dressing room, she quickly recognized what every woman was looking for – chic and imaginative style without the fuss. As a child, Karen was always inspired by the originality and comfort of vintage designs and naturally, created a collection that successfully filled the gap in the fashion market for “Vintage Couture”. With the launch of “Elegantly Waisted”, a line of vibrantly unique belts still flourishing, Karen introduces leather handbags and clutches this season – Zambos and Siega – with longtime friend Lisa Siega, adding the finishing touch to any outfit.
With ten years of experience in the fashion industry, Karen attributes her success to believing in her work and taking everything one step at a time. Crediting Tracey Ross for the push forward, Karen Zambos exudes fresh creativity that has been receiving a great response from celebrities and media alike. It’s no wonder that from her humble beginnings of remodeling vintage clothing, Karen Zambos, through trial and error, has created a stunning collection that varies from fun-to-wear hippie-inspired pieces to classy and elegant designs. More than anything, Karen Zambos is happily dressing confident, sexy and playful women worldwide in vintage clothing with a modern twist.
Zambos & Siega
Old friends Lisa Siega and Karen Zambos met while working at fashion hub boutique Tracey Ross in Los Angeles. While Karen developed her Vintage Couture clothing line, Lisa designed shoes and handbags for Tracey Ross’s signature lines.
Now they have joined forces to create Zambos & Siega: a new line of handbags inspired by classic looks, using vintage fabrics as lining and custom hardware. They set out to create a line of unique handbags, and the result is a striking collection of elegant, high quality bags.
