AFF Part #1: The Zac Posen Show

May 25, 2012

Last Saturday, I had the privilege to attend the Audi Fashion Festival, watching both the Zac Posen and Roland Mouret shows. My excitement was palpable throughout the week, and it was absolutely worth it. Thank you so much to the organizers, designers, models, and everyone involved for putting on such an amazing show! I may have attended just two shows out of the week-long lineup, but there were enough highlights to cover the next year. Memorable moments included:
  • Meeting the Princess of Malaysia, Denise Keller, and many lovely Singaporean socialites. 
  • Being featured as one of the "good-lookers of the Audi Fashion Festival" on MSN Lifestyle! (Be sure to check it out!)
  • Talking to Zac Posen on Twitter after the show, (yes, THE Zac Posen!) I'm still in shock after that one, actually.
  • Hanging out with the lovely fashion bloggers behind the blogs, Seven Inch Stilettos and Poisepolish.
The show itself, though, was the main highlight of the night. With both Posen's Pre-Fall and Fall 2012 collections being shown, the night was guaranteed to be a success from the very beginning. But as soon as the runway lights burst through the tent, and the first model strut across the room, expectations were exceeded. I have always examined runway looks thoroughly through photographs in magazines and websites, but seeing the ensembles in person was awe-inspiring. Whether it be a pleat, a bustle, a seam, or hem, Zac Posen made each detail to perfection in his collections. Structured A-line dresses, and power suits were sprinkled in between glorious gowns and maxi dresses. The ideal Posen girl came to mind--the powerful business woman by day, the red-carpet princess by night. However, old-Hollywood glamour dominated the collections on a whole. I was stunned with the delicate feminine features on each look; from sheer sleeves, to pleated trains, to yards of taffeta silk parading down the runway. Often, the flamboyant pieces were stiffly structured, with a firm cut. Other times, silk and sheer fabrics set a romantic undertone to the collection. In terms of color, there was a wide variety of hues throughout the runway presentation, from deep teals and sea greens, to romantic pinks and flirty reds, to subdued natural tones. Fur creations and coats were also seen in the collection; a perfect addition for Posen's New York fans. The greatest aspect of the collection was the complexity of the cuts, and contrasting minimalism that was often seen with the gowns. Posen's immaculate silhouettes might have made the collection as striking as it is. The back of each gown was a wonderful piece of art, each unique with a different feature and cut, with bustles, v-neck plunges, cascading yards of silk, or full-fledged trains. Scoop necklines, floral motifs, pleated geometric shoulders, and Japanese-inspired colors and woven motifs, completed the overall feel of Posen's presentation--full-blown glamour. When it comes to make-up, the look was minimal, with the exception of a layer of brilliant crimson lipstick on every model. Hair was kept in tight, simple buns, emphasizing the ostentatious dresses.  
The collection was magnificient. AFF was delightful. The glitz and glamour of the whole event was overwhelming. And of course, talking to THE Zac Posen on Twitter just made the night even more fabulous. 
Great credit goes to all the organizers and participants of the festival! Thank you to Zac Posen for bringing such beauty to the runways of Singapore!
