Zac Posen in Conversation
Victoria & Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
American fashion designer Zac Posen
trained at Parson’s School of Design in New York as well as London’s Central Saint Martins. He has since gone on to build a global brand, creating glamorous daywear, evening wear (the tech-inspired ballgown he designed for actress Claire Danes stole the show at the recent Met Gala 2016) and accessories. His designs are worn by the likes of Dita von Teese, Uma Thurman, Michelle Obama, Rihanna and Gwyneth Paltrow, to name a few. In addition, he is Creative Director for the Brooks Brothers women’s collection. He is also the star of popular TV show ‘Project Runway’ where he serves as a judge with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia. During a rare visit to London, he joins the writer and director Kinvara Balfour for an exclusive retrospective conversation about his life and career.
