Zac ultimately chose showing in Paris over New York because:
"Paris is the capital that has branded itself as a city of luxury fashion. What first brought me to fashion and turned me on to design were the great Parisian creators. I always thought this was the city I was meant to work in after graduating from Central Saint Martins.
For the Zac Posen Collection, I wanted to give a different voice and focus in the international fashion arena. Obviously, New York has been extremely supportive of me and the stars were aligned to base Z Spoke in my hometown. I have learned over the past 10 years to trust my instinct, to have fun with experimentation and to innovate. I do not see this choice as a focus on Europe, rather, it's about taking a risk, which is something that is important to do as a creator in order to evolve"
We're sure his risk taking will be a success and can't wait to see what he shows in both cities!
