The designer is seeking to inspire fashion aficionadas during trying times. "Saying that he hoped his show would inspire during challenging times, Zac Posen returned to the flirty, forties-inflected clothes that are his signature—and, as it happens, recall the look that was popular at the end of the Great Depression. For day, there were trumpet-skirted suits in sober wools, though Posen might prefer his customer play it carefree in a groovy eel-skin trench and leopard dress."
Posen's Ultra-Chic 1940's inspired "dolls"
While you wait to get your hands on some of the fabulous pieces from Posen's vintage-inspired collection, try your hand at these awesome "Retro Dress Me Up Dolls". They're the paper dolls of the digital era. I wasted an obscene amount of time dressing these dolls up yesterday. Check out my 1950's, 60's, 70's, and 80's dolls below. I personally think the 80's doll is a dead-ringer for Heidi Montag in her last "music" video.
