Zac Posen Spring Summer 2013

The Zac Posen fashion show this season was held on the terrace of Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall in New York. “Moonlight Serenade” and “Sunday Kind of Love” set the tone for the American designer’s show which was all about 1940s fashion.

The majority of the decade was busy with the Second World War, so accessibility to a variety of fabrics for being fashionable, was quite difficult. One of the most characteristic looks from this era was attention to detail at the shoulder: be it in the form of butterfly sleeves or banjo sleeves. 

Due to war rationing, utilitarian fashion proved to be very popular, which meant that skirts below the knee were the height of fashion. The catwalk represented these styles elegantly, and there was more of the designer’s usual red carpet glamour-worthy gowns.

The gowns were really gorgeous, with sweetheart necklines, and pretty floral tea dresses, with a vintage style, catering to popular fashions of the era. Some stunning designs included a silk crepe evening jumpsuit, a tulle bustier paired with wide-leg satin pants and an elegant white gown.
