Zac Posen's New Documentary to Debut on

House of Z will chronicle the meteoric rise (and fall) of the wunderkind designer
Reading time 2 minutes


At 21, Zac Posen was already the talk of the town: winner of CFDA's Perry Ellis Award for Womenswear, a red carpet favourite among celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman, and an all-round wunderkind. But like most success stories, his was not without its ups and downs. By the late 2000s, Posen's signature aesthetic – modern American glamour meets couture – fell out of favour with the fashion crowd and the designer was on the brink of failure.

Fast forward sixteen years. Things have taken a turn for the better, to say the least. In addition to his eponymous line and two successful diffusion lines, Posen is the creative director of Brooks Brothers and a judge on Project Runway. And now, the designer will become the subject of a new documentary, House of Z.

“It's not all runways, lipstick and fishtail gowns,” – Zac Posen

Directed by Sandy Chronopoulos, the 87-minute film chronicles Posen's career trajectory – from his meteoric early rise to his subsequent fall and recent re-emergence as a respected figure in the industry. With revealing interviews with Posen himself and appearances by Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, André Leon Talley, and Karen Elson, House of Z promises to be a compelling tell-all tale not to be missed.

House of Z will debut on on 6 September. Watch the trailer below for a sneak peek.
