Young, feminine, flirty, and very Gossip Girl!
Zac was back with his Spring 2009 collection that showed his range, versatility, and top-notch tailoring. He mixed couture gowns with bathing suits, cocktail dresses with pant suits. Some silhouettes were sheer and very body hugging, while layered fabric on some pieces created a beautiful doll-like effect. They were gorgeous – perhaps some of my favorite pieces of the collection. I liked how the designer switched between the form-fitting silhouettes and the forthy, layered look. He certainly has a lot of imagination. I loved the pieces in the collection that channeled Alice in Wonderland meets Gossip Girl. It just had this feminine whimsy to it. I loved the costume turkey dress at the end, with its huge pink, white, and black flounce. It added the right tone of fun, drama, and panache to the collection.
I also enjoyed the live interview that Zac gave to the very charming Andrew Leon Talley on the runway after the show. It gave us insights into the mind of this wunderkind. Can’t wait to attend his next show.
