Last night, Zac Posen showed his Fall 2013 collection at the Plaza—we only wish it was digital too!

He took some new direction than his past seasons, which are traditionally full of evening gowns. Style.com noted that “Posen focused less on evening gowns with his famous anatomical seaming than he usually does on the runway, favoring evening separates and a surprising number of pants, but the clothes were nonetheless loaded up with detail: soutache embroidery, origami draping and folds.”

We like the change, though, and hope thats a sign of new things to come for his brand, including dipping into more tech. He’ll be launching a more affordable line, Zac Zac Posen, and we want to see it sell online. What do you think? Hear more when he talks with WIRED’s Editor-in-Chief Scott Dadich—register now.
