Zang Toi's genius lies in creating important clothing for important people who are going somewhere important. His collection for Spring/Summer 2012 was beautifully made and punctuated with exclamation marks.

Toi titled his show, "My dream of North Africa," and first down the catwalk was a magnificent taupe jumpsuit topped by a glamorous floor length coat bordered in gold leaf. That was it; we were in Africa.

Toi's last two shows have been tight - colored from a palette of neutrals with splash of dramatic color (this season it was a sapphire blue) and created from swaths of luxurious silks and light wools. Toi's designs are timeless, classic beauties created for the world's luxury market.

The last model down the runway was Toi's friend, Kirstie Alley. Alley walked down the runway in style - her hair swept up in a 1960's style beehive and her svelte body clad in a bejeweled sapphire blue silk coat. She looked amazing, darling, simply amazing.
