Zac started his passion for fashion design early, and was already making small dresses for toys at a young age – his father was an artist and may have influenced his early beginnings. Posen was educated at Saint Ann’s School and during his time there, he joined with fashion designer Nicole Miller as an internee. He also went on a pre-college program from Parsons, The New School for Design. After matriculating in 1999, Zac went to The Costume Institute where he was mentored by curator Richard Martin. He was then successful in entering the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, which is part of the University of the Arts London. During his time there, he studied womenswear and made a gown that was displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

In 2000, Posen’s name started to become well known after he made a dress for model Naomi Campbell. His popularity and skill earned him many connections who offered to help represent him. A year later, he went back to New York and started to accumulate his own collections, with one of the first becoming part of GenArt’s “Fresh Faces in Fashion New York 2001” – his collection helped him get a $20,000 grant that would fuel his future projects. He found success in his first runway show, and then created his design studio in Tribeca. His net worth was certainly well established.

In the next few years, Zac would start to gain awards, and was also attracting numerous celebrity clients such as Kate Winslet, Jennifer Lopez, Natalie Portman and Cameron Diaz. In 2004, he made an investment deal with the brand Sean John, and four years later also began collaborating with Target to release his collection at their stores. His designs were also becoming popular on the red carpet, with many being featured during the 2012 Academy Awards. These features continued at the 2013 and 2014 Golden Globe Awards. and the 2014 Emmy Awards. He also became a judge during the 11th season of “Project Runway”. A few of his latest projects include a partnership with David’s Bridal to create Truly Zac Posen, which is his first official bridal collection. He has also worked on the Delta Airline uniform redesign.

For his personal life, it is known that Zac resides in the SoHo neighborhood of New York, where he lives with his three dogs and his partner Christopher Niquet.
