Born and raised in Hong Kong and Galway, Ireland, Zoë Wong graduated BSc(Hons) from Trinity College Dublin before moving to New York City to study Fashion Design at Parsons The New School for Design. Following graduation in 2009 she worked with International brands - TSE, Libra Leather and Pour La Victoire. It was during this period of apprenticeship that Zoë cultivated her knowledge of craftsmanship and raw materials, working in the fields of knitwear design, leather and shoe design. This innate respect for form, tempered with a modern sophistication, is evident throughout her work. In 2010 she explored the world of retail with her much-loved vintage store, Horse & June. After three years of invaluable experience at the buying/ sales coalface she folded the operation to concentrate upon her eponymous label, Zoë Carol.
