The hit Netflix rom-com series Emily in Paris, except for the dreamy backdrop of Paris, the love and work adventures of Emily, the girl that moved from Chicago who went with her highly contagious enthusiasm to conquer Paris and the Parisians in every way, offers us plenty of fashion inspiration. Maybe Emily’s style is different, maybe it’s bold, but definitely it’s memorable and iconic.
Dressed in eclectic designer ensembles, Emily Copper (Lily Collins) parades on the streets of the “City of Light” with vividly colorful patterns and unexpected combinations, filling every scene with a different & striking fashion statement. Her overly maximalist wardrobe is full of neon jackets, checkered hats, elaborate gowns and other daring pieces that don’t follow fashion rules, but definitely are characterized by a signature très chic aesthetic that we absolutely adore.
On season 2 costume designer Marylin Fitoussi and costume consultant Patricia Field -known for her unique costume work on Sex and the City- decided to dress Emily’s bubbly personality with standout, highly coveted pieces created by designers from all over the world, who are worth knowing if you do not already know them.
Among them is also the Greek Designer, Vassilis Zoulias, who enchanted us with his jaw-dropping yellow floral oversized jacket, an elegant magenta A-line dress and the checkered corset peplum top. A total of 18 different pieces -really treats for the eyes- were selected from Vassilis Zoulias Prêt-à-Porter collection for Emily’s (and Sylvie’s) wardrobe, arousing our curiosity to learn more about the designer from Greece. What we realized is that it is not the first time Vassilis Zoulias clothes draw particular attention from the global fashion world.
Among his most impressive and memorable moments was the Golden Globes of 2018, when Allison Brie wore his stunning silk strapless dress with pants and she turned out to be one of the 5 best dressed of the night. The same year Vassilis Zoulias also undertook to dress Natasha Lyonne at the 70th EMMY Music Awards with a long red lace dress, Mindy Calling at the Met Gala in New York with a white gown and blue gloves and in 2019 he dressed the singer Gwen Stefani for the finale of The Voice.

Inspired by the past and with his eyes on the future, Vassilis Zoulias, is giving classic timeless designs a modern update, a twist, but always making sure to keep their old time feminine, charming and romantic character alive.
“My memories of my mother have really defined me. I remember her in the 60s, getting together with her impeccably dressed girlfriends for a game of Gin Rummy in the afternoons. I was positively haunted by twinsets, black pencil skirts and pearl necklaces. Their style burned a hole through my head.” Vassilis Zoulias explained.
Vassilis Zoulias started working in the fashion industry when he was still 15 years old. Growing up, his obsession with fashion led him to become, for at least 20 years, a fashion editor for fashion magazines including Vogue Greece in the 80s and 90s. One day he decided to make his lifelong dream of designing his own clothing and accessories come true and in 2002, he opened his boutique in Athens, Greece, where someone can find his Prêt-à-Porter, Haute Couture and Bridal Collection. From that moment until today he did not stop designing new clothes, looking for fabrics that flatter the female bodies and patterns that give effortless attitude to day-to-night dressing.
It is not a coincidence that his clothes were chosen not only for Emily Copper’s appearances in the series, but also for the celebrities’ big nights on the red carpet. Vassilis Zoulias creations are for those women who dare to have a different style that doesn’t blend with the mass.
