fashions are famous for epitomizing romance, glamour
and sex appeal. For Fall 2008, Zang designed his
line with the inspiration of the American aristocracy
who vacationed in "magnificent and sumptuous
log cabins [that] were built by William Avery Rockefeller....
[and] personified the romantic notion of roughing
it in luxurious and glamour style."
The line utilized a palette of
rich reds and greens mixed with basic black and
white. There were rich furs to add glamour; there
were no blue jeans walking down this runway. The
clothes are pure enchantment for the man and woman
who loves to dress up and delight their friends.
As I was leaving the show, one
of Zang's friends stopped me and said, "I think
that red dress (the one in our top photo) would
look beautiful on Michelle Obama at the inauguration."
