To drive men mad is a heroic thing.”

First off the bat; Zang Toi put on a sexy show! From the elegant ball gowns to the leather pants - the mantra was fit, flatter and vogue.
Zang Toi spun his collection for Fall/Winter 2016 from lavishly luxurious fabrics and plush furs. The models marched down the runway in a collection that told a story of romance and adventure, written for women who live charmed and opulent lives.
The collection was filled with stunning gowns that would be perfect for the wife of the Chairman of the Board or the Chairman of the Board herself, but there were also some hot numbers for glamorous young women who live lives where "dodging the paparazzi" is a necessary life skill.
Zang dedicated his show, christened "Courchevel Chic," to Paris and to the spirit of the people who live in the City of Lights. Toi stated that he was inspired both by the courage of the people of Paris after the attacks and the Paris that has nurtured geniuses like Yves Saint Laurent.
