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 the 60's."

Zang's audience 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 Isler.

Zang's customers 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.
