He recently made his first South Florida visit, and stopped in for a runway show at Neiman Marcus at the Village of Merrick Park.

"Something that the Zac Posen line has prevailed on is dresses and I think it's prevailing in this season, it's really a major force this season," he says. "It's a celebration of femininity and mystery... and all the things that go along with great women, and confidence."
Zac says the one celebrity he knows wears his clothes but he hasn't met yet is pretty woman Julia Roberts.
