Zac Posen has many strings to his bow. The fashion designer is currently a judge on Project Runway, his designs are a staple on the red carpet and he is the Creative Director for Brooks Brothers womenswear. And now, he is the star of a new fashion documentary called House of Z.
The documentary follows Zac around, showcasing what it’s like to be a designer in our times, his journey to becoming a notable US designer, and what goes into bringing his designs to life (behind the scenes at his studio). While movie debuted back in April at the Tribeca Film Festival, it’s now about to come to the major screen for all fashion fans to enjoy.
The designer teased the trailer on his Instagram, revealing that it will be fully released in September (just in time for fashion month).
Zac Posen originally launched his collection in 2001, after studying at London’s Central Saint Martins. He is best known for his own womenswear ready to wear collection, and hit the headlines more recently in Feb 2016, when he challenged fashion’s lack of diversity by casting only black models. But he doesn’t just head up his own line, he also teamed up with David’s Bridal back in 2013 on the Truly Zac Posen affordable wedding collection, which is still a successful retail output for him.
In 2014, Brooks Brothers appointed designer Zac Posen its new creative Director for womenswear and accessories. Posen’s first collection with the retailer launched for Spring 16. Posen said he was “honored and excited to be embarking on this incredible opportunity to take the Brooks Brothers women’s brand into the future while respecting its deep, rich American heritage as an institutional company.”
