At only 36 years of age, American fashion designer Zac Posen has a long history in the fashion industry and is getting ready to give us a peak into the life he leads via an upcoming documentary, House of Z. His resume is one to envy, and at just 16 years of age, Posen attended Parson’s School of Design and only two years after the launch of his first collection, was awarded The Perry Ellis Award for Womenswear by the CFDA. With investors like Sean Combs and customers including Naomi Campbell and Kate Winslet, it’s no wonder the film has caught so much traction. However, the documentary makes an effort to note struggles undertaken by Posen, with particular attention paid to the falling ranks of his label not so many years ago. House of Z will air on September 6, exclusively at US Vogue's website.[Vogue US]

In other news today, campaign images for Gucci’s first women's fragrance under the creative direction of Alessandro Michele have surfaced. The Gucci Bloom images star its three faces – Dakota Johnson, Petra Collins and Hari Nef – dressed to the nines in floral numbers, all of whom were in attendance at the fragrance’s private launch party, held in May at MoMA PS1. The campaign was photographed by Glen Luchford in New York City, and according to a statement, was inspired by "urbanity and how scent can be a way to travel somewhere that does not exist, that is purely imagined. It's a surreal idea of wearing a garden."
