In pictures: Zac Posen's Paris collection
A New Yorker born and bred, Posen, 30, looking pretty sharp himself in a crisp grey suit, said he looked back to his earliest collections in preparing the show, cut the material at his studio, then finalised the outfits in Paris. 'I wanted to show a collection that was really tied to our customers' desires, to how she wears our clothing,' he said. He might have added that that would have to be a customer who naturally oozes confidence.
