So it’s Friday and I have decided to celebrate by sprucing up this week’s Insta-Love. That’s right – we’re gonna go a little glam on this one. In fact, let’s put our hands together for the real stars of fashion: the designers. There are a lot of designers in this world. There are the underground artists who make fabulous clothes that only a select few will get to admire. There are the overrated talents who, while they have the potential to create something worth loving, are lazy and lack the passion to stay relevant. Then there are the household names who have not only worked hard to claim their stake in the land of fashion, but the love for their creations has exploded into a realm of celebrity. This guy falls into that category. As if he needs an introduction; Mr. Zac Posen.
I will never forget the first time I saw a Zac Posen gown. I can honestly say that my heart skipped a beat. From the delicate chiffon fabric with lace overlays to the graceful draping across the waist, this gown created some sort of ideal of perfection in my mind and I have yet to let it go. I know that I’m not supposed to admit this, but I am a girl who is much more impacted by the beautiful pieces belonging to a daily sense of fashion (as in the style that can be worn in the real world). Don’t get me wrong, I love me an overrated award show, which results in countless magazine images of the best and worst gowns of the evening. However, the world of couture is a distant fascination for me. So how is it that I have come to be so enamored by a man who has built an empire on hand crafted, glamorous couture?
Mr. Posen has (for me) become a definition of glamor. There is an elegant feel to the aesthetic of his work and the design to all of his pieces (clothing and accessories alike), have the most upscale feel. They say you can never have too much of a good thing. Whoever said this clearly never ran off into scandalous love affair with fashion. I cannot seem to comprehend the idea that there could be too much of Mr. Posen’s good thing. Even looking at his design – not to mention his own personal style – just makes me feel good and more importantly, they make me fall in love with fashion over and over again. For an American designer who is only a few years older than me; well that’s something to be proud of.
Zac Posen’s Instagram is a true insight to all facets of his life. From the construction of his gowns to his lunch for the day, his account allows you to meet the man within the brand.Pin It
