ZAC POSEN JOINS BROOKS BROTHERS
Zac Posen is one precocious designer. After enrolling at Parson’s The New School for Design at the tender age of 16, his big career break came when he made a dress for Naomi Campbell. Fast forward one year and he’d established an atelier in his parents’ living room, crafting dresses on a tiny allowance until he’d received a grant to set up his own studio. Now a major industry, his dresses are frequently found on the red carpet by celebrities like Natalie Portman and Beyoncé Knowles. Just announced creative director of Brooks Brothers’ womenswear, he’ll bring his more European aesthetic to a traditionally American brand.
