We talked to Zhuorui Fu, founder of ZF Collection to learn more about her entrepreneurial journey, her continuously growing collection based on sustainability and her short and long term plans!

Take a look below:


Tell us a bit about you, where you’re from, your back ground, what you worked with? How you ended up in NYC?

My name is Zhu. I am a Chinese girl born and raised in Shenzhen, a young mega metropole of my age and the technological hub of the East, until I was 17. Before that, I exchanged to California, New York, and Finland.

From 17 onwards, I went to school at St. Andrews, which is the alma mater of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Because my Bachelor’s Degree was a joint-degree, I went to William & Mary in Virginia for two years. I got two diplomas from two schools within four years.

After that, I also went to UPenn for a Master’s Program. In between, I studied in France and went travelling, volunteering, studying in many countries for quite a bit.

I technically came to NYC before I went to University. Not the typical obedient student and born an urbanite, I was never into coursework and was always in the mega cities, London, New York, and Paris, when I was in school in Scotland, Virginia, and Philadelphia.

Being an ‘outsider’ entrepreneur, how has your journey in NYC been and what are the biggest challenges you find?

Since I came to NYC a while ago, NYC scenes were not unfamiliar to me. The entirety of my life is spent in the mega cities, so I am used to the fast-pace, sharpness, internationality, pollution, rudeness, in New York. It helped refine my edges and that coolness as a millennial working in a creative environment. Nevertheless, since I studied in Europe and was soaked in an intelligentsia environment, my taste tends to be more diverse.

NYC has been a blessing. In NY, I was always connecting with people I met from my schools, projects, people in the cafés, etc. Not all of my projects work out and many of them died, but whenever I want to work on something, NYC gives me hopes and resources.

The biggest challenge is surely the price. When I was in school, I had family’s supports. That was one of the major reasons I could afford a good education. After school, I had to rely on myself. NYC price is abnormal for a graduate unless he or she is working on a corporate job. For penniless entrepreneur, it is very difficult to afford anything in NY.

What’s ZFC about? How do you apply sustainability to your brand and your mission?

Zhuorui Fu Collection is a simple and classy style curation. It’s a haute-couture house whose elegant traditions married millennial attitude. We fit bespoke designs, 100% handmade and hand-stitched in France. It’s haute-couture, with products created by customization and small batches each cycle and never again, using vachette, the calfskin, from Italy.

ZFC is an ethical slow fashion brand. I do not feel comfortable using alligator skin or something. It champions a good style and taste, not necessarily fashion, by doing and having good investment pieces, to create that millennial timeless being.

I am a vegetarian and practice yoga since I was 14. Mother Nature, fair treating to people, are all very important to me and the brand.

Specifically, how ZFC carries out the mission, it came from below pillars.

First, ZFC only uses recyclable and perishable materials, with exceptions of collaborations with Zero Waste Daniel, who has already recycled parts of the synthetic wastes. I am not a big fan of plastics despite transparent plastics have been quite fashionable lately. We use leathers called vachette, which is the calfskin of cattle that is slaughtered as meat. Leather, paper boxes, cottons are the majority of the materials we. They are long-lasting, but they are naturally perishable if buried in soils.

Second, I knew my maker partner Roberto when I was studying French, in Nice. In fact, I lived right above his atelier. He dyed everything with homemade natural coloring. There are no chemical dyes that go into water and contaminate water, like many suppliers do when they make mass-produced garments.

Third, Roberto makes everything and he is well paid.

Lastly, fashion fades, style does not, as Yves Saint Laurent said: “Having a distinctive and cultivated style is already remarkably sustainable”.

How do you see ZFC fit into NYC’s fashion scene?

It fills in the haute-couture for young people, and does not chase the ever-changing trend.

NY’s fashion is very diverse. You can find all range of fashion because this is the ultimate fashion heaven. Nevertheless, NY’s fashion scene came to prominence only after war, when the American apparels gradually took European style to the mass, with the help of big department stores’ orders. In another word, NYC’s fashion can be very modern and street-culture inspired. NYC is a young city with almost 70% of the population under 45.

My line is a classic haute-couture line that calls for multidimensional awareness of style, through reading, traveling, and loving. It is not necessarily luxurious, but it is heavier in value. It fits with NY’s history of high fashion and dense art scene. They are also sustainable pieces that New Yorkers like. It does not fit into the wasteful part, superficial aspect, and the pursuit of forever new, of NYC culture and NYC fashion.

For me, cherishing what we carefully purchased, created, and loved is important. If this goes in another route from the NY mainstream, I am fine to not follow the crowd.

Nevertheless, the line combines my taste, the one of a globally educated millennial, and the Franco-Italian traditions of Roberto. My take on the styling and details of ZFC comes from our current epoch. They are classy and traditional by looks, but inherently cool.

What are your top 3 styling tips for New Yorkers?

Colourful and simple accessories to suit the permanent black garments.

Wear the worldly cultures proudly on ourselves. New Yorkers tend to have history and roots besides NY. Those pieces from elsewhere are great additions to the big NY style and they are what make us different!

Work less, chase less, enjoy life, read a book, listen to music, appreciate arts, cherish the finiteness of life in the material cornucopia. Manners and passions are the ultimate fashion.

Shop Ladies and Gents ZF Collection Details Atelier

Which is your bestseller item?

Val. This is a small cross-body coming in a very irreplaceable cute shape. Female customers like this bag a lot. It can host a book or a water bottle.

Vincent the wallet, Arcobaleno bracelets, and L’Animal, the endangered animals-inspired keychains are also popular for the lower price points, easy look, and cute stories.

Where can people find ZFC, besides online? You mentioned about a few pop-up stores in NY – which/where are they?

We do more among acquaintance circle, for many customers want certain parts to be customized. In addition, we also do online, but definitely trying to do more. We put on events that are, for now, seasonal. For example, we had partnership with Camaraderie in NYC and Persian Women in Tech.

We do high-profile events, which are in talks and will be updated momentarily. We look to do more collaborations and be taken into concept stores, businesses, or even retailers at small batches.

What are your upcoming plans for the brand? Collaborations?

First, I want more people to know about the brand and our sales need to come up. We look to more collaborations with local businesses that have physical stores and great concepts.

Second, I do look to do more lines for the brand. Now we focus on accessories, but Zhuorui Fu Collection is a millennial curation about elegance and style, not a bag brand. I want to introduce maybe ready-to-wear, maybe contemporary lines, that fit into the pronounced aesthetics and ethical believes. Or books, or classes, or yoga, or something that compliment customers’ taste and make them happy. I may also want to explore more topics that have always perplexed me, life, death, balance, etc.

Third, I would love to have pieces that challenge the status quo. For example, the Made in China image. I have seen great designer and makers in China. Made in China has a bad connotation because many products are massively produced at a high environment cost. However, it does not mean for all the products. I know amazing haute-couture designs that have supplied the emperors or have been handmade the same way for hundreds of years with passions and a supreme quality. I would want to do that.

Lastly, I want to contribute to gender parity. Most of the fashion lines, whether womenswear or menswear, are led and owned by men, while most of the entry jobs in fashion are filled by women. I will be very happy to do menswear and figure out ways to bring sustainability into this.

Can you tell about the collaboration with Zero Waste Daniel? We are huge fans and did a great interview with him a while back.

Yes, Daniel is great. There was a point I lived in Williamsburg right next to Daniel’s store. I walked pass his store multiple times and had always been inspired by the mysteriously awesome designs from the outside. One day I decided to walk in and was immediately greeted by warm reception of the staff beside the sewing machine. Fewer things at a sustainable way have always been a belief of mine. He makes clothes from scraps, which is just a good innovation itself. The pieces look very Brooklyn chic.

I approached him and asked him if he would want to collaborate. We sat down and he told me his story, of how he started at fairs selling a few pieces. He said it was “very hard” at the beginning. After years, he now made it into a beautiful store.

In New York, you can always find overnight success stories of some hotshot designers, but most of the people don’t have their businesses like this. In fact, doing business from scratch when you have limited resources is very difficult. People just don’t really care about you or your products. I was just beginning my business and my business looked very dodgy when I met him. He was very happy to help and designed our brand three exclusively fitted pieces in red, blue, and grey, for the passions, sorrows, and neutrality of a typical start-up story, I guess.

No need to say, Daniel is a super sweetheart and has great smile.

The Huffington Post: One of NYC’s Top Travel Entrepreneurs

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Huffington Post

Regardless of your profession, being featured on The Huffington Post is definitely one of the ultimate goals! Our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, was selected as one of NYC’s top Travel Entrepreneurs.

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Huffington Post

The day we got the news that our Founder, Fê, was featured on the Huffington Post as one of NYC’s top Travel Entrepreneurs, was memorable.

Not only for the tremendous honor and accomplishment in the Title, but because it was the day after her birthday!

What a gift, right?

The extremely talented Tech, Business & Lifestyle Brand Strategist, Sissi Johnson, was author responsible for the fantastic piece.

So, read below an excerpt of the article:


If you believe there is nothing like exploring a city through the eyes of a local, think again. Brazilian Fernanda Paronetto knows all of Big Apple’s best kept secrets.

“I always had this indescribable passion and curiosity for NY, so I was often here visiting, always uncovering the best hidden spots and events. The city is just so dynamic, alive, full of novelties, so multi-cultural, beautiful, with an intense energy – the list can go on forever.”

On starting Behind the Scenes NYC remotely, she said:

“A New York woman in her 40’s sent me a message saying: ‘Hi there! I was born in NYC and have lived here my entire life. But, I didn’t know about this restaurant you wrote about. So, I went to it last night, and simply loved it! Thank you for the tip!’ – I was like: WOW!

“I’m in Brazil, in my room at my mom’s house, giving tips to real New Yorkers who are actually enjoying them and thanking me! There must be something right about what I’m doing…”


As a final point, we are so grateful for this acknowledgement. Plus, it an honor to have Fernanda named as one of NYC’s Top Travel Entrepreneurs.

If you want to learn more about Fê, and her journey to New York City, you’ll simply love the article written by Hustle & Deal Flow – a movement for creators.

Our Founder’s NYC Passion Project for #BeSomebody

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Be Somebody

#Besomebody interviewed our Founder, Fê Paronetto in a short, but sweet article! After participating in a Speaking Engagement with them, she shared a few more details about her adventure of moving to New York!

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Be Somebody Speaking Engagement
The 1st “1Eleven” hosted by #BeSomebody.

We’re excited to share the link to an Interview our Founder, , did for #Besomebody!

They’ve created a project called the “Passion Project”. After participating at their 1st 1Eleven event, our Founder shared a bit about her passions for New York City, for people, for giving back and, for life!

#Besomebody 1Elevens are local events where speakers have one minute and 11 seconds to share anything they are passionate about.

Below, you can read her interview:


What is your project?

Behind the Scenes NYC started from my uncontrollable and inexplicable passion for New York.

It started from a humble little Instagram account, with myself as the 1st follower. Hahaha! I was living in Brazil, and worked on it for a 1 full year before moving to NY. The desire to move to NY so much that 5 months and 780 pages later, I got my Visa!

I wanted to share the best off-the-beaten-track places, events and brands in the State of NY. I wanted everyone to see NY like I see it, and feel what I feel when I’m here!

Behind the Scenes NYC is a platform created to share New York’s extremely unique vibe and energy. It’s amazingly dynamic, obviously multi-cultural…and the “hustle”? Wow…that’s really something to experience!

Behind the Scenes NYC has become exactly that. A platform of sharing stories of this diverse mix of people that you can only find in a city like this one. But it goes beyond. Behind the Scenes is not about tips in Manhattan. It’s about exploring this beautiful State, getting to know the stories of those that make this place so inspiring, learning about what else this State has to offer beyond the well-known touristic spots.

This was built as a platform for outsiders that want to explore the real New York, but also for locals in search of new experiences.

As John Legend once said:

“I regret profoundly that I was not an American and not born in Greenwich Village. It might be dying, and there might be a lot of dirt in the air you breathe, but this is where it’s happening.”

That’s the beauty of New York!

Who is it helping/serving and/or how will it benefit others?

Our Mission: “Strengthening the local community and disrupting the status quo of NY tourism far from the touristy scene!”

We showcase small businesses and autonomous people that are making a difference.

Plus, we want to foster tourism in the State of NY, in a special, unique way. After all, there’s nothing better than visiting places and feel like a real local, right?

For New Yorkers, we want to teach them what’s beyond the default places they are comfortable with and invite them to explore their own city, with more curiosity.

They always get amazed with what they “find”!

What do you need to grow your project?

Spread the word!

We’re always looking for Partners that support the project and are interested in sharing our story and their stories too. This can happen in different ways. It can be a media outlet writing about us or companies that are hosting clients or meetings in New York and want to organize something unique.

Plus, we are always interested in learning people’s stories.

So, we are continuously looking to partner up with like-minded people, companies and causes. For example, we want to engage more with local charities and small businesses.

How can others get involved?

Explore our website and write to us with your ideas to contact@behindthescenesnyc.com.

Furthermore, we are very, VERY eager and open to talk about new ideas, projects and how we can collaborate.

In addition, Behind the Scenes NYC has helped companies host events, offered media support to several causes, promoted small businesses or unique experiences in New York, or just shared great stories.

…we’d love to listen!

Hustle & Deal Flow Magazine Interviews Our Founder

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Hustle and Deal Flow Magazine Fernanda Paronetto

Hustle & Deal Flow Magazine published an awesome interview with our Founder, Fê Paronetto. It not only talks about her journey to New York, but also goes deep into her professional and personal life.

About BTSNYC What The Press Says Hustle and Deal Flow Magazine Fernanda ParonettoAbout BTSNYC What The Press Says Hustle and Deal Flow Magazine Fernanda Paronetto

Our Founder, Fernanda Paronetto, was featured on Hustle & Deal Flow™ Magazine.  H&DF is an online publication that features the stories and journeys of talented entrepreneurs, people, creatives and inspiring/rising growth brands that are disrupt the status quo within their industry.

In short, pretty much anyone who truly demonstrates “The Hustle”.

Fê talks about how she started Behind the Scenes NYC before moving to NY. How she left a great job, a long term relationship and a very comfortable life, plus friends & family, in search of more. SO much more!

In addition, she talks about her family, her years at Vogue Magazine and other companies she’s work for. Plus, what New York means to her.

Now, how she’s changing and disrupting the status quo of New York’s tourism!

Come #UnCover New York through her eyes!

Below is an excerpt that will intrigue you to read more:


Words of Wisdom: Resilience. I guess this is number 1. You will gets lots of no’s, but it’ll just make you rethink things around. Why the person gave you a negative response – learn from it! What and why is it not appealing to them, as it is to me? If I was seeing this for the first time, would I be in ‘awe’? – Create questions to yourself base on their big fat ‘no’.”

The media industry can be a tough business. Especially online.

It’s often characterized by critics with harsh reviews, “top 10” lists with the newest accolades, oligarchs of traffic and often a shortness of substance and depth.

Much like the reasons we at HDFMagazine (along with PRSUIT) set down a course to change the entire approach to online media publications by bringing purpose driven content, so too did Fernanda Paronetto, founder & editor-in-chief of the inspiring Behind the Scenes NYC – a platform dedicated to disrupting the status quo to New York tourism.

As Fernanda puts it:

“I want to share the best of the off the beaten track places, brands and events in the state of NY. I wanted people to see NY like I see it and feel what I feel when I’m here!”

Her caveat is simple, there’s too much focus on negative reviews and criticism. Not to mention, the newest “it” spots on all the latest trending lists, that it begs the questions:

What about all the spots people don’t know about? And, what about all the unknown “stars” of their industry that are often overlooked or no longer being featured? What about the places that make up the cultural essence of New York in the first place?

“I want to write about the best hidden spots in the State of New York, far away from the crazy, touristy scene. I want to teach people that New York is definitely not synonymous to Manhattan, talk about UpState NY, engage with the local community and tell the story through the eyes of the owner.”

Pretty inspiring for a woman who started this mission nearly 5,000 miles away from NYC in her home country of Brazil.

Fernanda had such a passion for the city that never sleeps. She began to journal and visually express her experiences of New York by way of Instagram.

So much so, that even residents of New York contacted her to thank her for revealing parts unknown to them.

With an extreme vision in mind and an unwillingness to compromise her soul, Fernanda set out to bring her project into a full fledged thriving business in New York.

What’s more is the story behind the storyteller herself…

Our Founder, Fê Paronetto, Featured On Bond Street

About BTSNYC What The Press Says On Bond Street Featured

Our Founder, Fê Paronetto, was recently featured on Bond Street. They are a startup focused on transforming small business lending through technology, data and design.

About BTSNYC What The Press Says On Bond Street

Our Founder, Fê Paronetto, was recently featured on Bond Street.

See below an excerpt of the interview, but she sure to read in full. Fê talks about how she landed in New York City after dreaming for over 10 years about it.

Plus, her inspirations, the Visa process, why New York City, how it was to run a business form over seas. Wait! And still, how the curation process works, favorite collaborations and what’s the most rewarding part of her work!


Fernanda Paronetto always wanted to move to New York City. It was something that was constantly on her mind, even as she danced between a variety of different professional pursuits at home in Brazil. She made frequent visits to the Big Apple, but it wasn’t until 2014 that she made the resolution that in a year, she would be a resident of the city of her dreams.

Prior to visiting New York in April 2014, Fernanda started an Instagram account to highlight local haunts out of the spotlight — a tourist guide for those who wanted to experience NYC in an non-touristy way, so to speak. Although under a different name, Behind the Scenes NYC was born, and quickly picked up traction gaining nearly 60,000 followers in the following two years.

Although Paronetto is now a full-time resident of Fort Greene, her first year of BTSNYC operation was run from her bedroom at her mother’s house in Brazil — 5,000 miles away. And this was on top of a full-time job.

What distinguishes Fernanda Paronetto from others in the booming Instagram category is her commitment to delivering top-notch content, uncontaminated by monetization.

That’s right, since the beginning, Paronetto has built BTSNYC into a thriving platform without selling out. Rather, she has expanded upon her original vision by monetizing offline with concierge services — corporate and private travel planning and management, art tours, private event organization and relocation services to name a few.

With a website launched this March, Paronetto has given anyone — from tourists to natives — the opportunity to discover a unique restaurant, rooftop bar, beauty salon, day trip or other miscellaneous finding that they never knew existed. Not to mention, each recommendation is packed with enough additional information to serve as a mini-brochure for the respective spot.

Below, we talk with Fernanda Paronetto about her “Aha” moment, the value of collaboration and how she has built a business without compromising her values….

Moving to New York City: you can change your life anytime

About BTSNYC What The Press Says PR Suit Interview

Our founder, Fernanda Paronetto, was featured in a great interview on PRSuit. It was named “Moving to New York City: you can change your life anytime” and talked about her journey to NYC!

About BTSNYC What The Press Says PR Suit Interview

To start, below is an excerpt from the interview:

“Moving to New York City: From Vogue Magazine in Brazil to Instagramming the streets of the Big Apple.

I am Brazilian and have lived in Brazil my whole life but I’ve always had an indescribable passion and curiosity for New York. I have traveled there frequently, always uncovering and documenting the best hidden spots and events. The city is just so dynamic, alive, full of novelties, so multi-cultural, beautiful, with an intense energy… the list can go on forever.

Initially, I wanted to move there right after college. I had plans to do so, but then you start working, having serious relationships… and suddenly BOOM!…you’re in your 30’s and still back home in Brazil. Bummer.

In addition, I desperately tried (and when I say this, I mean it to the extreme) to move to NYC in 2011. So, I spent an entire year sending emails, spending hours on LinkedIn, researching every single MBA and 1-year-course at multiple schools in the most diverse fields that I was interested in, conducting crazy hours of Skype interviews, reaching out for contacts through friends living in NYC, etc. It was c-r-a-z-y, and exhausting! But…

Conclusion: Nothing worked….”
