The fabulous Zang
Toi celebrated the 25th anniversary of his fashion
kingdom on September 9, 2014 during Mercedes Benz
Fashion Week. The models walked the runway with
an attitude of insouciant sexuality which made even
the most fabulous gowns look accessible and fun.
One hot trend for Spring was high slit skirts punctuated
with high-heeled booties.
Zane's line for
Spring/Summer 2015 includes a bevy of beautifully
constructed show-stopping "top of the stairs"
gowns, but he also created more day wear with
both well-bred dresses perfect for a Symphony
Ball luncheon and little "hot to trot"
numbers that gave off a vibe of "Paris in
is always filled with loyal customers and department
store buyers who greet each other like old friends.
The front row is jeweled with the fabulous; this
year's gems included Ivana Trump. Andre Leon Talley,
a smattering from "The Real Housewives of
New York City," Miss Teen USA K. Lee Graham,
Miss USA Nia Sanchez and Miss Universe Gabriela
include celebrities and philanthropists like Sharon
Stone, Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawcett, Kristie
Alley, Patti LaBelle, Gong Li, Eva Longoria, Fergie
(Black Eyed Peas) Heather Graham, Melinda Gates
and Saudi Princess Haifa Bandar Al Saud.
