Zac Posen: My wedding dresses celebrate women

Zac Posen's bridal dresses embody his love for the female form.
The American designer has dressed some of the world's most beautiful women, including Naomi Watts, Amanda Seyfried and Freida Pinto. He launched his debut wedding line Truly Zac Posen at David's Bridal in February, and says that his latest collection still draws on his love for high fashion.
“I love everything about a woman’s shape, and my dresses embody that,” Zac smiled to People magazine. “What I love about this collaboration with David’s Bridal is that I’m able to infuse couture and red carpet elements to a collection that is beautiful and at an accessible price point. Most importantly, the collection is offered in a wide range of sizes, making it truly special for every bride. I believe there is a dress for every type of woman.”
Truly Zac Posen features seven bridal gowns that range in price from $850 to $1,350. The collection also extends to stunning dresses that are suitable for bridesmaids, which are also purse friendly, with prices ranging from $100 to $300.
Designing for the bridesmaids was of high importance to Zac, as he feels that to create the perfect day, everyone needs to look immaculate.
"You can see many of my signature design elements throughout this line — not only in the gowns, but the social occasion dresses as well," he explained. "The bride is the most important person in the wedding; however, in order for the wedding day to be complete, every person involved must look and feel elegant and sophisticated as well. The line would feel incomplete if it didn’t offer a range… for the entire bridal party.”
With numerous celebrity weddings planned for 2014, Zac found it impossible to choose just one famous bride-to-be he'd most like to dress.
"I’ve been fortunate enough to dress many talented and beautiful women throughout my career. It’d be difficult to choose just one!” he laughed.
