THE CONCEPT

 

The Istana will be working hand in hand with Zang Toi Kuala Lumpur, headed by Zang’s brother, Toi See Luon in getting as many sponsors as possible for the show. 

 

Proceeds from the fund raised will be pledged to 3 charity organizations. In Malaysia we nominate the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM) and PAWs (Animal Welfare Society) while in the USA Zang has nominated the Lance Armstrong Foundation,US..   The objective of supporting recipients in different parts of the world is simply to showcase how the fashion industry can go beyond countries’ borders as we work together to improve the quality of life.

 

Seating plan is theatre style following buyers’ show concept accommodating from a minimum of 500 to a maximum of 1,200 guests.  Tickets will be priced at RM220 nett and RM110 nett (with the +10% and 5% included).  Both ticket categories will include a 50% discount voucher basically for URBAN, the hotel’s modern fine-dining restaurant. However should the restaurant be full on that evening, the 50% discount voucher will also be applicable at Taman Sari Brasserie, the hotel’s coffeehouse.  The discount voucher is only valid on the day of the event. 

 

It was also agreed that we sell standing tickets at RM60 nett per ticket.

 

The programme for the evening will include live musical entertainment by renowned local artiste Zainal Abidin and auction of some designer items courtesy of Zang Toi, a return air ticket to London, UK and a return air ticket to Sydney, Australia courtesy of Royal Brunei, among others.

Zang Toi’s Benefit for Race for the Cure

Fashion designer Zang Toi is going to Austin, Texas on October 13, 2007 where he will ride his bike in a race for the cure for cancer. Zang will be participating in famed cyclist Lance Armstrong’s 40 K bike ride, The Race for the Cure. So on a hot night at the opening of Fashion Week, Zang held a fab party/benefit for The Race for the Cure at Bo Concept at 105 Madison Avenue. Lady Bunny was spinning, cocktails and hor d’oeuvres were dancing through the crowd and Zang was everywhere, greeting the fabulous Patti LaBelle as she and her entourage of sexy body guards arrived in a suitably hip black SUV and working the back room where his models were preparing for a fashion-at-a-party show.

Hot or not, it was a very cool night. Both the clothes (gorgeous flower-themed dresses in fantastic pinks and sophisticated black) and the people were beautiful. And we wish Zang on to a winged victory as flies by Lake Austin wearing his signature kilt and shows Texans just what the fabulous House of Toi can do in a bike.

Behind the Seams, Dressmaker Zang Toi Is Cleaner Than You—Much, Much Cleaner!

“I’m going crazy,” said the skirt-wearing designer Zang Toi during an intimate dinner at his Upper East Side pad, fixing his gaze on several dishes in the kitchen sink. “Everything in my apartment—it’s like I use something, I have to put it back; if I use a glass, I clean it and I put it away. I can’t even look at this right now.”

 This was a barefooted affair, intended to raise awareness for Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Challenge charity bike race in October, in which Mr. Toi is competing for the second year. The host served his special chicken curry and sautéed shrimp with string beans. “I cook and I clean the pots as I go along,” he said. But “tonight, there’s so much going on.” Deep calming breaths!

Before dinner, a few attendees poked gingerly around Mr. Toi’s impeccable closet, which has a white side and a black side; any colored items are kept at the designer’s office.

And during the feast Mr. Toi slipped back into his bedroom and moved a silver vase on his mantel an inch or so. “Yes,” he said. “I hate the messy.”
