Melbourne based Zoë from Unempire is getting shit done. It's not even a year ago that she put an end to working for 'the man' before starting her own line of socks for your feet. If you meet this tall, beautiful, lithe, whimsical creature you will be enamoured by her sincere and endearingly quirky personality. Her designs are as random as the clothes she wears herself. Not only is she a bit of a head turner, you will find that your head will kind of tilt to one side, as one's head does when you are in the presence of something peculiar...odd even. But in a good way! Like how strong cheddar and apricot jam go together.
Speaking of cheese, that is just one of her original sock designs. You will also find prawns, tuna cans, egg and soldiers as well as a selection of bread products. A perfect Secret Santa gift for your gluten free friends! Did you know Rob Kardashian's standard polka dot and zebra stripe sock company has an alleged net worth of of $3.5m? No, I'm not joking. Go against the grain and fight the boring and the Kardashians and embrace Zoë and her socks for yours and your loved one's feet. Remember what I always say...beige is not a colour, it's a lifestyle choice.
Zoë, how do you take your coffee?
COAL BLACK AND DIAMOND STRENGTH! I'm sorry, but sugar is for pussies
What are your thoughts on religion, politics and clean eating?
Ummm, MY thoughts on these three topics are they are personal. More personal than say your sex life or your salary. I've got opinions and beliefs but they are implemented in my own life...it's my bizznizz and I'm not going to make it yours.
Tell us something really embarrassing that has happened to you...
OH there are so many...SO SO SO many...I can't pick just one...I'm going to pick a different question...I'm waisting time here...
OK, is there such a thing as a fashion faux pas?
My first answer was no, as many people that know me would probably consider me one big walking, talking fashion faux pas. But then I changed my mind. Fashion is the easiest, most instant, most direct way one can express themselves. I think a fashion faux pas can occur when someone is clearly expressing someone ELSE'S vision/personality/mood OR projecting a vision/personality/mood that they believe others want to see, resulting in looking insecure, uncomfortable hype beasts and fashion slaves which emanates the kind of wavering self esteem that bullies can smell from a mile away.
Wear whatever you God damn please! Just own it.
Have you ever experienced the searingly white hot pain of a broken heart?
Ummmm Yyyeppppp. But now that I've got that feeling in my emotional repertoire, I've got a broader emotional repertoire! And, a re-shuffling of the 'ol perspective is never a bad thing. What's considered 'shit' and what's considered 'good' is going to change throughout life...it doesn't mean you're not doing it right.
What is the coolest thing about right now?
The coolest thing about right now is Endless Love by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross just came onto iTunes shuffle and into my heart.
