Zachary E. “Zac” Posen is an American fashion designer. In 2000, Posen received a prominent career opportunity after a dress he made for Naomi Campbell changed hands several times among several fashion insiders, including actress Paz de la Huerta. He is famously well-connected and has called Stella Schnabel his muse. Through Interview magazine Editor-in-Chief Ingrid Sischy, Posen met his future publicist and event producer Ed Filipowski of KCD, who offered to represent him for free. Also in 2014, he was named Creative Director for Brooks Brothers, tapped to modernize their signature women’s clothing and accessories line. In 2014, he introduced a more casual Pre-Fall 2015 Trunk Show collection.
