Zachary E. “Zac” Posen is an American fashion designer. Education: Saint Ann’s School, Central Saint Martins, Parsons The New School for Design. In 2004, Sean “Diddy” Combs became an investor in his line.
Zac Posen’s first runway show was in 2002, and it received mixed reviews. That didn’t stop the endless buzz hyping the youthful designer—then just 21—as fashion’s “Next Big Thing.” In 2004, Sean “Diddy” Combs became an investor in his line, and his designs started appearing on red carpets. Posen also created Z Spoke, a less-expensive line for Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as a collection for Target.
