Zac Posen has praised designer Tom Ford for helping him get started in fashion when he had no one else to give him a helping hand and was struggling to launch himself. Zac reveals that Tom took a chance on him when he was launching his label in 2001 and offered him financial support to get started, even without attending a meeting. Zac says that he was able to launch his first proper show with Ford's support and had only just managed to scrape together enough savings to start up the first collection from a previous job he had held where he learned about business.

Zac praises Ford for starting his entire career because of his generosity at the time: ''I wouldn't be in business if it wasn't for Tom Ford. He took a risk, and wrote a cheque, and paid for my second fashion show without meeting me. That was our first show with real PR. I started the company with money saved up from lemonade sales on Spring Street. That's how you learn profit and margins, advertising, everything.''

Zac admits he often isn't down to earth and when he was younger he was regrettably quite obnoxious to others - something which has been gossiped about in the past by previous people he has worked with. Posen says that if he ever met his younger self, he wouldn't be too impressed and would be embarrassed by his own behavior: ''I would have strangled myself too. I was just too young and too in-your-face and not humble.''
