New Brand Spotlight: Zac Posen

Zac Posen, Zac Posen ready to wear, Zac Posen cocktail dresses, Zappos Couture, Zac Posen evening dresses, couture dresses, A prodigy of avant-garde proportions, New York designer Zac Posen was an overnight sensation in what seemed like mere seconds after completing design school. He launched his namesake label when he was just 21 and had his first show in 2002, where he quickly established a theatrical precedent and a cult following among the young and trendy New York socialites and industry insiders.

Posen's niche revolves around the poised and elegant figures of glamorous women with fascinating social calendars and the desire for smart ensembles in which to entertain. Posen dresses women for the red carpet and the cocktail hour, a concept quickly becoming endangered, but one that inspires his designs season after season.

Zac Posen's work has gained respect for its streamlined aesthetic of forties-inspired tailoring, shapely evening gowns, and itty-bitty cocktail frocks. The Zac Posen woman, like Posen himself, is a patron of sensational fashion; she is always dressed to the nines and believes in robing for the thrill.

New Brand Spotlight: RED Valentino

New Brand Spotlight, Zappos Couture, RED Valentino, new couture brands, ValentinoRED Valentino tells a contemporary fairytale - one that combines freshness and classic style. Symbolizing a glamorous, romantic, and playful parallel world where anything is possible, RED revisits, through innovative visual language, the timeless beauty of Valentino.

RED Valentino dresses a modern girl who hails from a long lineage of iconic ladies, from the delicate princess of the best-loved children’s tales, to the shy, well-behaved debutante of half a century ago. Each would hardly recognize herself in her modern counterpart, yet they all undoubtedly share the same dreams, aspirations and longings of any young woman.

RED Valentino dresses a girl who is naturally feminine and confident, yet retains a delicate innocence. One who dares to be romantic, while playfully investigating her darker side. One who exudes the fragility of youth, while dramatically aware of her power to seduce. One who sees life – and style – as a game - a funny one, a serious one.

Inspired by the exciting new world unfolding around her, she borrows bits and pieces and makes them her own. RED Valentino mixes various influences, from a myriad of places and eras, allowing this girl to experiment to her heart’s content, daring her to wear couture with an edge. Textures, innovative accessories and unexpected ornaments further enrich the collection, emphasizing its fresh, feminine individuality.
