It’s fashion week again and as long as my favorite designer is involved, then so am I!
Notable fashion designer and television host Zac Posen will be debuting his 2017 spring and summer clothing collection at Fashion Week in New York City on Monday, September 12th, 2016. He’s best known for constructing unique and ritzy gowns for celebrities and couture-based department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus. He is also a co-host for the Lifetime network’s ‘Project Runway’ since January 2013.
Every season, Posen’s shows remain unpredictable. For his 2016 fall and winter collection in February, he introduced his campaign “Black Models Matter” where he cast mostly models of color to fight for more diversity in the fashion industry. The show featured supermodels Naomi Campbell and Veronica Webb wearing Posen’s gowns. Campbell and Posen closed the show together walking side by side down the runway.
In May 2016 at the New York City Metropolitan Gala, the Project Runway host designed a shimmering baby blue glow-in-the-dark gown for his long-time friend, actress Claire Danes. Reviews and photos of the design flooded both local and international media, including social media. “I like to make people dream,” Posen said when asked about the Cinderella-like design at the Met Gala. “That’s my job.”
V.I.P. tickets to his show this season sold out in the first few days after they were posted for purchase online. The tickets included V.I.P. seats, a backstage tour of the show, and a meet and greet with Zac Posen himself. Posen is also offering internships to college students who are studying and interested in public relations, sales, and fashion design. Application details and more information are available on zacposen.com.
