Zac Posen | Fall 2015 | NYC Bridal Week

Truly Zac Posen Fall 2015 is an attentive study of stylized architecture. Tailored

classicism erupts In engineered lines that simplify or bewilder as the constructions


Says Zac Posen, “The collection responds to modernist Ideals of purity and refinement

through the rhetoric of craft and the celebration of melodic lines. l was inspired by how

different fabrications would take the seam for a walk on a woman’s body, and down the


The bridal gowns are presented in a wide array of fabrications and cuts to cater to all

occasions and settings. Drawn from Posen’s artisanal craftsmanship, bonded lace is

rendered in an off-the shoulder, body hugging gown that cascades to the floor in a

dramatic train to complement a very sensual open back. A sweetheart strapless gown is

enhanced with the manipulation of different fabrications – all ton-sur-ton – within a

single piece: matte organza intertwines with drapes of tulle and veiled lace. A bonded

lace ball gown showcases a simple column silhouette that, from the waist down, erupts

in an organza and lace overskirt. A strapless, draped bodice blossoms from a tulle ball

skirt enhanced with arched seams Into a pepium and ton-sur-ton feather accents to

celebrate bold femininity.


The social occasion dresses reveal a softer dimension of anatomical constructions. Floral

prints are borrowed from the Impressionists’ gardens, whilst the silhouettes are Inspired

by the Zac Posen red-carpet archives. A bold black 8t pink printed, corseted satin dress

falls across the body with a fluid, organic front drape and it is presented in two lengths:

knee-shimmering for a garden wedding or in floor-length fora formal city wedding. Rich,

ink black-colored Chantilly lace is lent a structured ease with long sleeves and a blush

undergarment to highlight the interplay of seams and fabric.


For Fall Z015, the Truly Zac Posen accessories collection continues to expand. The head-

pieces range from Art-Deco headbands to a crystal blusher to traditional veils that have

been cut in different lengths to detail the proportions of the dresses they complement.
