Kim Kardashian will always be thankful to Zac Posen for introducing her to high fashion.

As one of the most photographed women in the world, the reality TV personality undoubtedly has access to any clothing brand she desires.

However, in an interview with her husband Kanye West for the September 2019 issue of Vogue Arabia, Kardashian explained that she will always have a soft spot for New York-based designer Posen.

"Zac Posen, who was the first designer with a fashion house to believe in me when nobody did. He invited me to the CFDA Awards (in 2010) and I remember him saying to me, 'Kim, I see this in you, can you please trust me?' He wanted me to wear minimal make-up. I was so uncomfortable and, of course, showed up with a full face," she shared. "That night he introduced me to Karl Lagerfeld and I sat next to (designer) Rachel Roy. I remember being so nervous and intimidated because I knew no one. Rachel was so nice, she told me who was who and introduced me to so many people."

Kardashian has undergone a major style transformation since she began dating West in 2012 and often credits the rapper with inspiring her to be more daring with fashion.

As well as collaborating with her husband, the 38-year-old also has fond memories of working alongside Manfred Thierry Mugler, who created her crystal-studded beige Latex look for the 2019 Met Gala, Alexander Wang, Riccardo Tisci, and fashion editors Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld, as well as the late Karl Lagerfeld.

"I will always remember my shoot with Karl Lagerfeld that Carine styled - he wanted very specific sheets for a shot that we did so he sent someone to his own home so that we could use them," the star added.
