Sunday evening in Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, Zac Posen’s Spring 2013 was one of glamour, beauty and absolute sophistication. Reminding us again why he is undoubtedly deserving of being a top red carpet choice, his dress, suits and multiple gowns dazzled. Booking the stars of the new show The Face, Naomi Campbell, Karolina Kurkova and Coco Rocha, it may seem at first it was a walking advertisement for the production company, but it was more likely he was sticking to what he believes is an effective marketing decision. Posen has stated he isn’t interested in finding a new face for each season, but would rather have a girl that is a brand all her own [referring to Coco in a recent NY Times article].
Regardless of his loyalty and appreciation of his models, he’s skills in design were quite apparent with seemingly endless floor-sweeping gowns, feminine necklines, sculpted waists and fabrics of organza, silk, tulle and chiffon masterfully crafted into works of couture art. Have a look.
