From This Issue

Zac Posen

Fashion Features

Stylemakers: Zac Posen, Red Carpet King

Rather, the perfect moment in the perfect gown is the physical manifestation of a complex equation in which fashion plays but a part, along with psychology, business savvy, desired career trajectory — and visual projection of how the look will read small, but global, on Instagram.
