Zoe Schlacter from Nashville, Tennessee is a 16 year old gal who creates floral and embellished hat decors and much more artistic fashionable items. Wearing multi-color lipsticks, mixed 90s and vintage clothing, and displaying her delightful and crafty headpieces, she definitely knows how to speak her artistic statement through fashion!
