Pre-Fall 2012: Spotlight Zac Posen

A magnificently styled Hilary Rhoda for Zac Posen.  

Setting aside Galliano’s antisemitic rant for a moment, compare tailoring and direction, is Zac Posen shaping up to be the American Galliano?  There are some undeniable similarities between the two.

Naturally, the collection included more than a few red carpet contenders as well.
