5 MIN­UTES WITH Zac Posen

Wedding Bells (East) - - STYLE - McGill

He’s a de­signer syn­ony­mous with wow-fac­tor gowns. Zac Posen counts Claire Danes, Reese Wither­spoon and Coco Rocha as his red-car­pet glam squad and his Truly Zac Posen col­lec­tion for David’s Bridal has topped our dreami­est dresses list since its launch in 2014. We re­cently chat­ted with Posen about his lat­est lineup and his mus­ings on bridal style.

What is the style phi­los­o­phy be­hind your lat­est col­lec­tion for David’s Bridal?

“The dresses fea­ture sculpted fab­ric ma­nip­u­la­tions, as well as clean sil­hou­ettes with de­tails that help cre­ate a mod­ern look. Hand-sewn ap­pliqués, en­gi­neered botan­i­cals, and fem­i­nine lace add to the dra­matic ro­man­ti­cism of sev­eral of the gowns. I played with lay­er­ing del­i­cate lace fab­rics to cre­ate an al­lur­ing sense of vol­ume within the sil­hou­ettes.”

Do you have some favourite trends you see as be­ing new bridal clas­sics?

“I be­lieve when it comes to wed­ding gowns, the bride needs to em­body the dress. She should em­brace her sil­hou­ette and char­ac­ter, which she can do with the help of my de­signs. I be­lieve there is a resur­gence in be­com­ing one­self, but a few flashes of gold or other fab­rics are al­ways good state­ments.”

What is the most im­por­tant thing a bride needs to con­sider when shop­ping?

“There re­ally is no right or wrong way to find the wed­ding dress of your dreams. You need to search out the gown that em­braces your sen­su­al­ity and per­son­al­ity as well as em­bod­ies the woman you truly are.”—Ali­son
