Anyone who thoughtthey’d seen the last of Zac Posen’s traditional evening-slot spectacleunderestimated Z Spoke, which made its runway debut with a splash. Theparty atmosphere was there and the clothes were just as festive, withgirls turned out in punky magpie looks, rainbow makeup and tranny shoes.Which isn’t to say the clothes were out-there too.
