Sketchy Stairwell Confession: Zac Posen

Zac Posen in real time

Fashiontainment. A term coined by designer Zac Posen about how fashion has morphed into big production entertainment with all the star endorsements, schmaltze, and bling.

Author’s note: Fashiontainment can also be unforgiving since designers end up competing with other designers for Hollywood stars to pimp their wares PLUS competing against  all kinds of reality  — make you a fake star overnight — television and twitter hype.

It seems only fitting that Zac Posen — who just launched a new line for Target, marked by his own Fashiontainment party at the New Yorker Hotel last week– stars as my first profile in this new video series, entitled “Sketchy Stairwell Confessions.”

There will be more of this series in the coming weeks….

For now: All Zac. No filler.

Primary Cast of Zac Posen for Target launch: L-R: Selma Blair, “Prom Queen;” Claire Danes, “Warholian Muse,” Maggie Gyllenhaal, “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” and Parker Posey, “Rocker Chick.
