Rachel Zoe Collection FW18 Mood Board

Rachel Zoe Collection FW 18 Mood Board

It’s no secret Rachel Zoe is inspired by 1970’s glamour, frequently referencing the likes of Bianca Jagger in her mood boards. This season she wanted to celebrate the complexity of the modern woman, speaking in particular to the duality of femininity and masculinity that lives within all of us, so who better to look to than David Bowie? The ultimate glam-rock icon was a master of high-octane dressing, blending glitz with grit and doing it all with head-turning flair. Here, take a peek at her mood board as well as some of the sketches for the collection.
