“I’m not into robotic, idealizations, of sexuality. I want emotion.”
“For this season it’s about creating your own existence, as an artist living today.”
~Zac Posen at his 2009 fall show
The mood for this fashion show was set of what was to come, when audience members had 5 grand pianos, playing on the runway. You knew right then, what was coming down the runway would be romantic, beautiful and luxurious. The way every woman loves to feel, when she puts on a piece of clothing.
Zac Posen is a designer who’s not afraid of taking risks, but his risks pay off greatly. In fact he has become one of the favorite designers for young Hollywood starlets, like Rachel Bilson and Clair Danes. This New York native with an education, from one of the most prestigious schools in London, Central Saint Martins; has become a regular on the red carpet and quickly becoming a household name. After his first major runway show in 2004, he was awarded the CFDA Swarovski-Perry Ellis Award for “Ready-to-Wear.” Not a small achievement for a young talented designer. As for his immediate future, he has the showing of his spring 2010 collection, this week at Fashion Week, fragrance and diffusion lines, sometime this year.
