Zac Posen’s dresses are glamorous, heavy, impeccably tailored and incredibly flattering for a female body. His pre-fall 2014 collection is really impressive and features beautiful sculptural red carpet gowns made out of luxurious fabrics such as duchess satin, printed jacquards and black organza. He also used fabrics such as grey flannel, which are typical for menswear pieces and turned them into elegant evening dresses.
Zac Posen’s design is often compared to that of late American couturier Charles James, famous for his breathtaking voluminous gowns. He simply knew how to make a dress that fits like a glove used a lot of wire and buckram to strengthen the material and hold it close to the body. The same can be said for Zac Posen who is capable of making amazing evening gowns from hundreds of pieces of fabrics, as well as from only two of them.
