NYFW: Zac Posen


By: Maddison Brown

It is difficult to formulate an opinion about Zac Posen’s Fall 13 collection when you are continuously left speechless. His line consisted of a mixture of mature business formal pantsuits, with tweed jackets and embroidery. He didn’t feature many jackets but the ones that were shown were simplistic and classic. These designs were quite muted compared to what followed; stunning evening gowns that literally left us speechless. The gowns were featured in jewel tones of deep navy blues, chocolate brown, gold and crimson followed by sophisticated lilac and an eye-catching yellow. 

They fit beautifully, in a classic Hollywood style with stunning silhouettes. The necklines were an enormous focal point, with little to no accessories distracting from the beauty of the natural bias-cut neckline. Something else that was kept consistent was the use of folds and draping, as well as delicate embellishments. This is one show of many that I wish I could have seen in person, as even the models make-up and hair were perfectly striking and dramatic. You can’t expect anything less from Zac Posen.
