Zang Toi


Just in time for Valentine's Day, Zang Toi told us a tale of opulence, romance and sensuality. The mood was set from the moment we entered the tent with its huge background posters of what appeared to be a smiling Marie Antoinette; it was further enhanced when the young stars of TV's Laguna Beach kissed for the cameras as Cole Porter's Love For Sale played in the background. And what could be more fitting than to see luxury lover Donald Trump's two stars, Miss Universe and Miss USA, sitting on the front row, only slightly upstaged by the smooching Lagunies.

And then the show started and Zang Toi owned the runway. The clothes were spectacular gorgeous creations fashioned from fur, velvet and wool. Told mostly in a palette of black and grey, the show also featured sophisticated violet wool dresses and two exquisite ball gowns in pink and lavender, both with turtle neck sweater tops.

Glamour strode the runway. The model sported sophisticated upswept hair dos as they walked the runway to the musical accompaniment of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite. Visions of Sugar Plum fairies were definitely in the air. The climax of the show was Toi's stunning black evening dress with a diamond collar necklace. Absolutely Beautiful!
