My friend Todd had a family vacation and discovered that his 14 year old nephew, Zak, is a budding designer who lives in Southern California.
Apparently, he has been studying Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle, taking in all the nuances.
Todd asked me if I could look at his work and give him some pointers. At first I thought, he’s probably going to be super young and really rough around the edges… Which at 14 years old, what more could you expect?!
After I looked at Zak’s work, I couldn’t believe my eyes. This kid has got some crazy talent! He designs and edits his own magazine. He styles the hair, does the art direction and meticulously designs the dresses which he sews himself and uses Barbie as a model.
Some of the shots would give FIT students a run for their money, and since I have designed 2 Barbie’s myself, I felt not only competitive looking at Zak’s work, but intimidated!
I think we will see a lot more of Zak in the future so I wanted to be the first to introduce this talented kid to the world… World meet Zak.
