Zac Posen

zacposenDesigning wunderkind and native New Yorker Zac Posen, 34, supports a slew of local charities, including Teachers Count, which, according to its website, aims to “raise the status” of educators. But lately, Mr. Posen has been taking his show on the road. “I do fashion shows around the country, and last year we raised over $2 million,” Mr. Posen said last month backstage at Grand Central Terminal, before the Fall 2015 runway show for his eponymous line (he doubles as Brooks Brothers’ creative director). In Boca Raton, Fla., for instance, he staged a benefit for Shuzz, which provides free shoes to needy children. In Toronto, he aided a pediatric hospital. “I wish that more designers would do it,” he said. “It becomes fashion-tainment, and there is a good use for that besides building your brand.” —Zachary Weiss
