zac posen's pianist

Believe it or not, I played the piano for 11 years. And though I cannot remember anything past chopsticks, I still love the look of a grand piano.
Though I would love to own just one piano,
Zac Posen opted for four pianos and a runway show.
Purple Diary has posted some awesome, up close photos of the show. And if you search the site you can see some Rodarte, Phi, and Proenza Schouler photos too.

What a brilliant idea! I'd love a grand piano too! Even my 'upright grand' is sadly squooshed in my spare room collecting dust :(

LOVE Zac Posen!

I love the stillness of the pianist in the first picture. It seems nice to have pianos at a runway show. It's always interesting to wonder about the general ambience of a show from its clothes.

That's such a neat idea! I love pianos.

Zac Posen's stuff is really beautiful. I play the piano too, badly, whenever I see one.

Rachel Comey did this a couple seasons ago – her show was in the big parlor of the Salamgundi Club and there was a pianist playing some really haunting pieces... it was like a séance or something. Really cool.

The only thing I can still play with both hands is the Entertainer!

A piano? On the runway? That's amazing! It's such a great way to bring musicians the credit they need. Without music, you couldn't possibly have a full-on runway show.
Thank you for posting this! :DD
