SupPosen I met Zac...

Zac Posen's Pre-Fall collection was shown at the 32 annual San Fransico Ballet Fashion Show Luncheon at the Fairmont Hotel.  Sacramento Fashion Week PR Manager Maria Serquen and I attended, and we had the time of our lives. We loved the luncheon format, which was a fresh difference from the evening parties that are more serious and tiring after a long day at work. 

With 500 well dressed attendees and large than life chandeliers, it was a extravagant visual display!

Although the clothes on display were formally listed as part of a "Pre-Fall" collection, I felt the collection could work any time of the year.  

I personally loved the purple-hued dresses, but at the end of the day I couldn't say I just liked one. There was no such thing as a "plain" Zac Posen. Each one was an eye catching shade or an exquisite cut. 

After the luncheon Zac Posen did a meet and greet on the third floor of Saks Fifth Avenue where people could see his clothes up close and even try them on with his help. 

(If you scroll back up  you'll see I took a picture of this one on the runway :) )

Not only did I get to meet Zac Posen but I made some friends too! This gal Khyuen and I knew we'd be pals when we saw that we had the same Kate Spade bangle

So while these two (above) didn't know each other I felt that they should because the both seemed to radiate color! 

As soon as I walked into the luncheon earlier that day the first thing I saw was the yellow checked Louis Vuitton dress/bow and matching shoes. I tried to keep my cool but I started to do little jumps up and down when I pointed her out (discreetly) to Maria. If you haven't seen the collection it's from the Spring/Summer 2013 collection ....please go over to youtube right now and look it up...the models come down a friggin' escalator! Here's the link

...and here's Zac Posen and I. Just so you all know, I've printed this photo out and just need to frame it now. Meeting him was so inspiring. I felt like I was at an art gala and he was kind enough to share his work with us AND talk with us. It made a huge impression on me. I'm probably not the only one to say this...but he made me feel special. 

This woman (I didn't catch her name...she left too quickly!) told me she worked with Zac when he was 23 years old and is a friend of the family. 

I approached her asking where she got her outfit and she said she laughed saying she got the all seeing eye bag from a random vendor on the street and made the dress herself! Such creative couture! 

A couple of people tried on pieces from Zac Posen's collection. Man, can he make a dress! The yellow one below was one of my top five for sure. Who could say no to canary yellow and little seed shaped beads? 

All in all it was a dream. I like to think about this experience at night when my eye lids shut and my mind replays great experiences (they are the best kind of re-runs). 

But...wait! There's more!

:) According to WWD, Zac plans to return to the West Coast in the fall. I'd buy a planner just to pencil that date in! ^_^ See you there? 


  1. Great review girl! Love your pics, outfit, and most of all - YOU! :)
