At the end of the chat, a model emerged wearing the enchanting fiber-optic gown that Claire Danes wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala back in May. I feel like I did on a bigger scale with my actual industry. We've kind of reached all parts of our globe today, right? Leslie Jones tweeted about how no one wanted to design for her for the premiere. I wasn't part of that one, so I don't know. She has a beautiful body, and I would have played it differently.
The luminescent creation, evocative of Disney's Cinderella, was an instant sensation. I mean I think there's something great about a quick creative process and seeing that. So, that kind of exoticism of the global culture has kind of reached a point. Then Christian Siriano came out of the blue and said, "I'll do it." What did you make of that whole thing? The amount of times I have to turn down projects personally that I would like to take on … If she had come to me and said I want to make a piece with you, you know, I would have been open to it, but I have to fit that into a schedule. I just think when you are dressing a celebrity, for me, I'm hopefully adding a moment. But I've dressed, in my career, women of all body types, consistently, and of all ages.
I think that over the last 15 years, the industry itself has become more saturated, so I think as a judge the stakes get higher. I think it has been part of a change of the industry, for sure. There was no Google Maps, you know, it was exploration. She always knew she was going to be a writer, director.
It was once a very hot ticket to see those final three runway shows at Fashion Week. It's a funny group, especially once I got to high school. I have another friend, Ry Russo-Young, who is an independent filmmaker.
As soon as he showed his first runway collection in New York in 2001, he was championed by influential store buyers and courted by industry titans from LVMH.
But from the beginning, the house of Zac Posen was also a family affair, with his mother Susan and older sister Alexandra helping run the company and his original atelier set up in the family’s apartment.
Was it more for the gawking and being part of a culture phenomenon than it was for the actual fashion? We went to an amazing Brooklyn high school called St.
For the last five years that I've been on it, it's definitely fans of the show [in the audience]. Much more than a look at the quintessential glamour of fashion, the debut film from Canadian journalist and producer Sandy Chronopoulos is also the story of a fractured family.The doc traces Posen’s growing up in an creative-leaning household in the original New York artist enclave of downtown Soho.The most notable takeaway here: While everyone else is dressed down in appropriate theme-park-attending fashion — with the junior member of the expedition even sporting festive face paint — Posen looks like he’s going for a brisk walk at a palatial English estate, even when he’s sporting Mickey Mouse ears. Fashion dynamo Zac Posen added a little technologically enhanced razzle-dazzle to the Adobe MAX conference in San Diego last week, where he addressed a crowd of roughly 11,000 about his career arc and creative impulses. I'm wondering if it's getting even more challenged and questioned now. It's a wider cut-and-paste culture we are living in today. I think there was an angle that she was able to take.to talk about his childhood (he grew up the son of an artist in a Soho loft — back when they were still used as artist studios), his experience dealing with last-minute celebrity requests and his thoughts on the touchy issue of "cultural appropriation" as it applies to fashion design. Obviously you don't have the ability to perfect or reflect, which is very important to me, even though fashion is very fast-paced. It's all about how something is projected and if there is actual integrity beyond just something trendy or appropriate. Did it seem disingenuous for her to say that, sort of accusing all fashion designers of not wanting to design for her body? I mean, I'm a generous person, my spirit, you know.
