Drama! Romance! Fantasy! Zac Posen brought it all to Saks Fifth Avenue San Francisco along with his Fall 2013 collection. The designer and Project Runway star teamed up with Saks to present his fall collection replete with scores of models, teams for hair and makeup and — oh yes! — droves of adoring clients.

Posen was the guest designer for the 32nd San Francisco Ballet Auxiliary Fashion Show Luncheon at the Fairmont Hotel, benefiting San Francisco Ballet in late April. Posen displayed 41 looks and to a 500-plus audience that included actress Jane Seymour and event chairs Claire Steward Costic and O.J. Shansby.  Fittingly, Posen’s latest collection was inspired by a woman’s travels from East to West, as the designer himself crossed the country for the event.

First shown during New York Fashion Week in a salon-style setting at The Plaza Hotel’s Terrace Room Posen’s fall collection conjures the old world grandeur of the 1940’s. The clothes themselves are both architectural and elegant, from the show stopping strapless lavender hourglass gown with fluted ruffled hem to a drape-neck wine gown with affixed cape.

Of the event, Posen told WWD: “It was more women dressed in my clothes than I’ve ever seen in one room [as I helped guests] in and out of dressing rooms helping women get ready for gala season.”

Saks’ Senior Fashion Director Colleen Sherin notes: “We were thrilled to bring a bit of New York fashion week magic to San Francisco, with the ever-charming Zac Posen presenting his Fall 2013 runway collection, brimming with red carpet-ready looks.
