The Couture Connoisseur
Fashion designer FE ZANDI was a baby of haute couture. She spent her early 20s in Paris apprenticing with masters such as Jean Patou and Pierre Balmain. Today, Zandi's limited-edition collections, available at her salon on El Paseo, offer some of the world's most elegant, high-fashion, feminine ensembles. "I design with love because I am a woman," Zandi explains. "I design for women, and I bring out the best in women."

She'll Always Have Paris
After graduating at the top of her class from the Paris Academy of Fashion Design in London, Fe Zandi became a costume designer for the Sadler's Wells Theatre. A year later, she opened her first collection at the Hilton Hotel with a formal show to much acclaim. Zandi brought her talent for fashion design to the United States opening a haute couture salon in Beverly Hills and a second one on El Paseo in Palm Desert. She sources her own material, which she personally buys from Paris.
