Today, Zac Posen celebrates his 36th birthday. The American fashion designer known for his engineered and structural gowns, is a red carpet go-to for celebrities like Rihanna, Sofia Vergara, and Claire Danes.
The Central Saint Martins graduate staged his first runway show in 2002, and went on to take home the CFDA Perry Ellis award in 2004 for his ready-to-wear designs. Today, Posen juggles an eponymous line, a diffusion line, and a bridal offering. He is the acting creative director at Brooks Brothers, a judge on the popular Project Runway television series, and is also a chef in the making. The designer takes to Instagram to showcase his culinary creations, and will soon release his first book, Cooking with Zac, which is scheduled for this fall 2017.
