People Who Studied Abroad #183:
Zac Posen, designer
Pursued a degree in womenswear from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London (United Kingdom).
From “Zac to the Future”, Lucire Magazine, 2002:
Lucire: Do you think that by going to Central St Martin’s gives you an edge as a young new American designer as opposed to somebody who might have gone to FIT or Parsons?
ZP: Well I think I was around students and teachers where you are able to format your own project by yourself, you’re pushed to the boundary. At St Martin’s you’re given a briefing and a month later after meeting with your teacher you have to present. It’s very intense. You have to be very self-motivated.
