Sometimes you just need a touch of glamour!

Zang Toi is the king of posh and he sure knows how to put on a show. Toi's is the ultimate luxury line; the designs are beautifully cut and tailored from the world's best wools, silks, leathers and furs. Zang's Toi Story for Fall/Winter 2015 was created from a neutral palate of blacks and taupes with metallic bronze accents.

Toi designs for a woman who live in a mansion and travels with Louis Vuitton steamer trunks.

Zang creates his designs in a wedding cake of an atelier on Fifty Seventh Street in Manhattan where he is aided by his design family of seamstresses, many who have been with him for decades. Toi's energy is infectious; he smiles, the seamstresses smile and so do any lucky visitors.

Toi's designs are worn by celebrities Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawcett, Kristie Alley, Patti LaBelle, Gong Li, Eva Longoria, Fergie (Black Eyed Peas) and Heather Graham, but he has also created luxurious wardrobes for philanthropists and royalty including Melinda Gates and Saudi Princess Haifa Bandar Al Saud. Toi has befriended many of his clients and his fashion show is a high-school reunion for the fabulous with much air-kissing and hugging.

Toi's designs have been featured in Vogue, Vanity Fair, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Financial Times, etc. NewYorkCool.com and Hyland Magazine are both avid fans of Toi's designs.
