Countdown to Zac Posen for Target! New Pics Featuring Alfre Woodard's Daughter, Mavis Spencer

April's almost here, and that means one thing to fashionistas: the launch of Zac Posen for Target is near! I reviewed the collection in November and crowned it the best collection ever to come out of Target!

And now, I see why. Zac Posen, who recently launched a lower priced line, Z Spoke, at Saks, reinvented some of his iconic pieces for the new collection. In the gorgeous collection, you will find some of his classic designs---like the trumpet dress he made for Naomi Campbell in 2000---reimagined at a Target price point. “That was the dress that started my business,” Posen said. “It’s flirtatious and fun, but it has a punk, tough quality too.” 

(P.S. how amazing does Alfre Woodard's daughter, Mavis Spencer, look in this spread!)

Rather than slapping a designer logo on mediocre, poorly-constructed work, Zac is giving us reinterpretations of his signature pieces. Amazing!

Here's what the designer, whose Fall 2010 collection I trekked to see with a sprained ankle (yes, it's that serious!), had to say about his snap dress design for Target:

“We made the ruffles detachable, like a Judy Garland apron,” says Zac Posen. “You can wear it as a skirt over the dress; undo it and drape it over your shoulders à la Cristóbal Balenciaga; or if you don’t want any frou, take it off and you have a sexy date dress.”

Beautiful and versatile? Sigh. Does it get any better? 

Even the tuxedo look has inspiration and meaning behind it.  “Lesbian proms have been such a big thing in the news lately. Rather than create a fake subculture, I wanted to address things that are actually happening.Posen says. “It’s a kick-ass girl who can wear a tuxedo to prom! Don’t be afraid of drama.”

Get ready for looks with plenty of drama and attitude when the collection debuts on April 25th. It will be available through May 30th.
