Zizi Donohoe is a British born fashion designer. She studied Footwear Design at Cordwainers at the University of the Arts, London and graduated with First Class Honours. In 2015 she moved to the USA, initially to New York and then on to Hollywood. The following year, she founded her fashion label Zizi Donohoe.
From her Los Angeles based studio, Zizi creates her designs, which fuse Old Hollywood glamour with the decadence and excess of the eighties.
Praised by Vogue for the “elegance and timelessness” of her designs, Zizi Donohoe has rapidly become established in couture fashion and strives for greater sustainability, using natural and ethically sourced materials.
Her designs can be found in Moda Operandi and Galeries Lafayette Champs Élysées and have been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, L’Officiel, CR Fashion Book and Tatler.
When we invited Zizi Donohoe to hand-paint an Art Chess set for us, we knew she would create something eye-catching and unusual. Inspired by her previous work, her set features clouds in a blue sky and marble-inspired patterns.
