DISCOVER THE BRAND
'Putting people at the heart of Fashion'
As an ethical concept and bespoke designer not afraid to think and design ‘outside the box’, versatility within conceptual, statement and original designs is where Celine Zara’s creative flare lies. She holds a strong belief that any design should tell a story, create atmosphere, provoke emotion and most importantly, have meaning. Celine’s collections are often inspired by reflections on society and aim to produce a positive message to make people think and reflect. Using physical objects for design details and silhouette Celine produces creative, unique, structured designs with a strong emphasis on remaining true to the concept research. Passionate about using unconventional materials, her Graduate collection featured metal structures, inspired by the internal structures of Cavendish Pianos, which adorned the body, working beautifully with the garments in order to create the overall shape and look of the collection ‘Sonata in F’.
Throughout her degree at The University of Huddersfield, she found that the world of quality, Luxury Womenswear is where her passion and flare lies and is now bringing that same passion to her Studio based in The Ribble Valley, Lancashire. Having previously designed for HRH Princess Beatrice and having her Graduate collection featured in Drapers magazine as 'one to watch', her collection went onto walk the catwalk as part of Fashions Finest UK LFW's Closing Soiree in September where her design style caught the eye of established London based stylist Bernard Connolly. She has just returned from the World University Fashion Design Competition 2019, Qingdao, China where she was awarded the Sustainability Design Award which she is honoured to be able to bring back with her to the UK.
She thrives on using her unique creative vision to find beauty and inspiration in the most unconventional of places, pushing the boundaries of fashion in order to create something truly inspiring.
