“Elegance is not about being noticed, it's about being remembered.”
With Zang Toi, it's all about the entrance - the moments in a woman's life that demand a train.
The entire line is elegant - add some pearls and a luscious white silk shirt and velvet pants transform into "After Five."
For Fall/Winter of 2017, Toi created his fantasy from luscious rolls of cashmeres and silk taffetas and velvets. The garments were created from palette of black, white and royal blue, beautifully tailored and draped to flatter.
The audience at Toi's show was filled with his fans, many of whom know each other either through New York society and/or by being a "friend of Zang's." There was much air kissing before the show and afterwards, Toi's die hard fans gave him a standing ovation as he ushered his princess and her stunning royal blue ball gown down the runway.
Toi said that “I want to make a statement with the color “Brilliant Royal Blue” this season,” said Zang Toi. “It is a well-edited luxurious and glamorous collection featuring razor sharp tailored sportswear and entrance making evening looks!”
