Zac Posen has returned home! After a year of showing at Paris Fashion Week, the designer reintroduced New York City to his fun flair for grandeur with his Spring 2012 collection.

And perfect timing, too. Just a few weeks ago, Posen opened his very first Z Spoke store in Manhattan's Meatpacking District.

Before he debuted his collection (which, as expected, we adored), MC's Sergio Kletnoy chatted up the designer to rediscover his style icons, biggest inspirations, and the moment he first realized he was destined for a life of fashion.
