Zac Posen to showcase his interior design skills
on Thursday,February 11,2010 20:02
Fashion designer Zac Posen has put his skills to the test in a new boutique condo development in New York City.
Posen, who is best known for his eponymous womenswear brand, will reveal his first attempt at interior design at the opening of an F and T Group project next month, the Real Deal reports.
The designer is currently lending his vision to the kitchens, bathrooms, fixtures and finishes of the building's model apartments. He is also working on the surfaces of the development's gym, lobby and amenities.
Posen told the media outlet that his designs are intended to "invoke desire" and "bring some warmth and regality to industrial New York City."
Although Posen became famous for his line of gowns and cocktail dresses, the designer has expressed interest in interior design. In September, he was rumored to be in the process of creating a line of furniture, according to the New York Post.
The Real Deal reports that this project has been put on hold, and Posen will not provide his decorating advice to tenants of the new building "unless they are really wealthy" and able to afford his "expensive taste."
