Zang Toi’s fashions are famous for epitomizing romance, glamour and sex appeal. For Fall 2008, Zang designed his line with the inspiration of the American aristocracy who vacationed in “magnificent and sumptuous log cabins [that] were built by William Avery Rockefeller…. [and] personified the romantic notion of roughing it in luxurious and glamour style.”

The line utilized a palette of rich reds and greens mixed with basic black and white. There were rich furs to add glamour; there were no blue jeans walking down this runway. The clothes are pure enchantment for the man and woman who loves to dress up and delight their friends.

As I was leaving the show, one of Zang’s friends stopped me and said, “I think that red dress (the one in our top photo) would look beautiful on Michelle Obama at the inauguration.” Hmm!

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.
