New York designer Zac Posen is best known for his cocktail dresses and gowns which accentuate the female figure. With a desire to create clothes from a young age, he enrolled for a fashion course at Central Saint Martins in London. He made a name for himself as a student when he made a gown for supermodel Naomi Campbell.
After graduation, Posen moved back to New York City and set up a workshop in the family’s home. He launched his first collection of feminine and sculptured dresses in 2002 and won rave reviews from the press and buyers. He soon received financing and support from celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Natalie Portman who wore his gowns regularly on the red carpet.
Posen opened his first store in New York in 2011 and produces 3 lines, his diffusion line Z Spoke and a contemporary line Zac By Zac Posen and his main line. Currently, he does not have any stores in Hong Kong selling his mainline but Zac By Zac Posen is sold in Harvey Nichols.
