In conversation with ZAC POSEN

Few young designers have reached the pinnacle of success as quickly as Zac Posen. By age 21, he had already interned with Tocca and Nicole Miller and his first collection was sold at Henri Bendel.  The New York born and raised designer was merely 22 years old when he wins the coveted Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation prize and went on to becoming the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.

He also caught the attention from fashion industry leaders including Vogue’s Anna Wintour but it didn’t stop there — the support by the Hollywood A-list roster catapulted the young designer into the stratosphere with stars like Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry, Gwenyth Paltrow, Lucy Liu, Rihanna, Jennifer Garner , Natalie Portman, Katy Perry, Freida Pinto and countless others donning his creations. You can count on hearing his name on the red carpet amongst the answers to “who are you wearing?” these days.

Zac Posen It’s no surprise, the award-winning designer is a favourite and  considered a “boy wonder” to many. His touch of Hollywood glamour combined with sophisticated sensibility has become his calling card.
