NEW York-based Malaysian fashion designer Zang Toi has provided a touch of glamour to Federal Hotel Kuala Lumpur and the country’s golden jubilee celebration.  After two months of designing, the celebrated designer has created three limited edition evening clutch bags in lavender, blue and a combination of his favourite colour black and white for the occasion.  Zang’s brother Toi See Luon said: “When it comes to fashion, Zang is inspired by our mother. She is very fashionable and is often seen dressing up in cheongsam and carrying a clutch bag when going out.”  See Loun said women in the 1950s would clutch these small bags under their arm whether to go to the market or to dinners and that Zang had always found it fashionable for women today to use such bags.  Zang has had collections on evening clutch bags before but this is the first time that he is incorporating Terengganu’s songket for his bags.  According to See Loun, the bags can be used both in the afternoon and for evening cocktails.  “The cover of the bag is made of songket bearing the logo of Federal Hotel Kuala Lumpur back then.   “When you take off the cover, you can use the leather bag with the Zang Toi logo for any casual occasion,” said See Loun.  The three designs of the Federal Evening Bag collection designed by Zang Toi were presented to the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Nur Zahirah by Federal Hotels International managing director Low Gee Tat recently. 

Also present was Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.
