Zac Posen On The Wedding Dress He’s Designing For Fashion Royalty
“I am a New Yorker through and through, so brunch is genetically engineered in me,” Zac Posen said. So much so that he even managed to host one on a Wednesday—not usual brunching time. But that didn’t stop friends like Leigh Lezark (left), Charlotte di Calypso, Anna Cleveland, and Genevieve Jones from dropping into Le Caprice, and taking down a few Belevedere Bloody Marys in the middle of the work day.
This is only the most recent Posen brunch; just last week, he was throwing one for Londoners, from who, the designer says, New York girls can take a tip or two. “Because of that security with their history, they can take the piss out of themselves,” said Posen, who holds a degree from London’s Central Saint Martins. “They have a good sense of humor, even in dress and style, and that’s something us New Yorkers can learn from.”
As the world eagerly awaits one of England’s most historic style moments, the debut of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown, the self-confessed history buff admits he is preoccupied with the dress of another princess bride: Josephine de la Baume, Mark Ronson’s fiancée. Baume is only the latest model to walk the aisle in Posen; Coco Rocha also tied the knot in one of his creations. “We are making laces, working with different embroidery houses all around the world for Josephine,” he said. “That’s the wedding that I am focused on, that’s my rock-royal wedding.”
