CEE FARDOE IS A CANADIAN WRITER WITH A PASSION FOR TRAVEL, FASHION AND HER SECOND HOME – PARIS. SHE SHARES ALL OF THAT, ALONG WITH HER TIPS FOR EFFORTLESS, INTELLIGENT DRESSING, ON COCO & VERA.
A love of simple, understated, elegant style drove Cee Fardoe to create Coco & Vera in June 2010. A business professional by day with a creative flair and a love of the written word – she holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing – Cee hopes to inspire women and to show them how to add a little bit of Parisian je ne sais quoi to their everyday lives. Cee firmly believes that you can always fit style into your schedule, no matter how busy you may be. And she knows a bit about that, because she continues to work 9-5 while running Coco & Vera. She currently resides in Winnipeg, Manitoba with her husband. They make frequent trips to their second home, Paris, and love discovering new cities together.
Ian Lloyd, Cee’s husband and partner in crime, is the award-winning photographer behind Coco & Vera. A Paris-trained chef by day, Ian has worked as a freelance photographer for over a decade. He has found time to photograph events and campaigns for Estée Lauder, Lacoste, Laduree, Vera Wang, Mavi, American Eagle and many more respected brands, while continuing to work as a professional chef.
Coco & Vera reaches thousands of fashion lovers daily and continues to grow every day. Cee and Ian’s work has been featured in publications such as Glitter Guide and Vanity Fair Italia. They have collaborated with many numerous brands and boutiques, including Holt Renfrew, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Floriane Fosso, Obakki, REVOLVE, Shopbop, NARS, Ever New and Olive + Piper.
Cee is a member of the FASHION Canada Style Panel and a former member of the StyleList Canada Style Council. She published her first book, “After Shots” in 2014, and is currently editing her second novel, which she hopes to release in earl 2018.
