Boston-Based Zack Lo Debuts Latest Shoe Collection in Taipei

Phantoma from the Panic shoe collection Zack Lo


“I have always been attracted by the power of the ancient goddesses: capricious and compassionate, often cruel but always fascinating. I drew on these feelings for Panic.” --Zack Lo

Zack Lo conjures up the female force of Panic: she moves fearlessly from day to night, effortlessly transforming from alarming to alluring. Pandemonium follows her with every step as she strides with the rhythm of an ancient deity emerging from the sea or a rock ‘n’ roll goddess mounting the stage before spellbound fans. The mistress of Panic weaves a tale of mystery and terror so mesmerizing you can’t take your eyes off of her. She is always in control, ensnaring those daring enough to approach.

Panic is the latest custom shoe collection by edgy designer Zack Lo, himself a master of materials and mystique. Panic, which features Lo’s signature workmanship, draws on the iconography of primal goddesses matched with exquisite detailing in leather, crystals, beads and other embellishments in an alchemy of style and function.

Panic will officially debut during Taipei IN Style 2013 on October 15 to 17, 2013, at the Taipei World Trade Center Nangang Exhibition Hall. More than 27,000 visitors are expected to attend this mega event, which will feature a range of runway collections by international designers, as well as showroom exhibitions by some of the hottest brands emerging on the world fashion stage.

Lo will showcase Panic, an exclusive line of custom footwear, which features shoes like Phantoma, an organic Cinnabar colored platform sandal with primal appeal, Susperia, a black suede platform shoe studded with hematite Swarovski crystals and the watchful gaze of an earth spirit, and Specter, a cutaway boot of quilted white leather and studs, equally suitable for disco or Roman saturnalia.

“I design from a place of intuition, drawn to what I consider ‘beautiful,’” says Lo. “I have always been attracted by the power of the ancient goddesses: capricious and compassionate, often cruel but always fascinating. I drew on these feelings for Panic.”

Zack Lo has been making waves in the fashion world since his debut shoe collection, Voodoo Circus, which was inspired by life in the West End London, and the experience of shopping on Carnaby Street and Oxford Circus. Other collections have followed, and Lo has expanded into handbags, statement jewelry and other accessories.

His fashion footwear has appeared in Glamour, InStyle and British Vogue, as well as other international print magazines and broadcast media. Zack Lo shoes have been featured at Fashion Week runways in New York City, Boston and Las Vegas, as well Couture Fashion Week exhibitions in New York City and Chicago. The brand has also enjoyed international exposure on runways in Hong Kong and Taipei. Lo won the 2012 Boston Fashion Award and his shoes are favored by young style-setting Hollywood actresses, such as Augie Duke (Bad Kids Go to Hell and The Mentalist) and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones).
