Zac Posen Quotes:
“Fashion is killing women’s body image of themselves.”
“Everybody wants to be a star right now, to be heard, to have a voice, so you have to give the confidence for people to have that ability — and give them the wardrobe to become a star.”
“There’s not one major greatest influence on my career. It would be film and great artists and great imagineers — Jim Henson, Walt Disney, Charlie Chaplin, people who understand the joy of the imagination.”
“So many people are following fashion now. It’s become fashion-tainment.”
“The biggest thing politically within fashion is that the clothing should be displayed on different body shapes.”
“I don’t believe in one ideal beauty.”
“I have so many fashion mistakes, but that’s part of being in fashion. I think the people that you see make the most mistakes are usually the best dressers.”
