Showcasing his secondary collection Zac by Zac Posen at the New York Fashion Week 2015, the designer reminded us of how much the fashion industry has evolved over the years.
Keeping the whole deal subtle, smart and simple, Posen's models walked the runway in some very innovative designs. But the highlight of the show was an LED dress designed in collaboration with Google's Made with Code initiative.
The dress has been coded by LED dress technologist Maddy Maxey and is meant to encourage young girls to take up computer science while pursuing higher studies, according to Adweek .
The dress in black comes in nylon mesh pattern and is three-fourth in length. While it could easily pass off as any other dress, we were awestruck when we saw the 300 moving LED lights on it.
Other outfits were mostly in black and white shades with a few pinks and blues thrown in. Pants, dresses, high-lows, very well tailored blazers and shirt-dresses were the order of the day. We really liked a simple black knee length dress with fun, flirty sheer panels on the mid-riff area. Another ensemble that we can sort of already see on the red carpet is a white, long flowing dress with black print clinched at the waist with a black sash.
A baby pink knee length summer dress looks dainty and pretty and would look very cute paired with strappy footwear.
Overall, the collection not only was bold and innovative with the LED dress, but also very vivacious and delightful.
