ABOUT THE FILM: “‘House of Z’ captures the way in which direct hands-on engagement is vital to an artist's continued relevance, and vitality.” — Variety Zac Posen has become one the most recognizable faces in modern fashion with his truly unique aesthetic style. He is a force to be reckoned with whose talent shone through as early as childhood. However like any journey to great success it hasn't come without cost. With unique access to Posen, his friends, family, and muses, and a wealth of personal photos and videos, Director Sandy Chronopoulos traces Posen’s career from its meteoric early rise as a fashion industry enfant terrible, through a surprising backlash against his success, and into his present reinvention as one of his industry’s most prominent figures at the head of one of its most respected brands. House of Z peeks past the glamour of the runway and the red carpet to show audiences a true portrait of Posen as both an artist and businessman.
