New York Fashion Week: Zang Toi Spring 2013 Runway Show
French romance was in the air last Sunday night at Zang Toi’s Spring 2013 show in New York. Inspired by the romantic French Riviera, Zang Toi amazingly chose soft colors for his collection which nevertheless made stunning and bold statements. The French classical music setting underlined the mood of being in the Cote D’Azur in South of France just perfect.
The designer opened his show with boudoir looks — a gorgeous ivory floor-length silk morning gown with pleaded ruffled borders and a beaded ivory mini-robe. Softly structured tweedy looks were followed after sexy secretaries in suit-costumes with pinstripes were walking down the runway. Toi closed the show with beautiful, long soirée gowns — a giant tulle bubblegum Cinderella ballgown followed by a parade of “Disney dresses” in silk gazar.
All gowns were embellished with beautiful crystals on the shoulders, neck and hem line. Big delicate bows and puffed sleeves added a touch of sophistication. Soft colored flowers that looked like bouquets were precisely placed at the back of low cut dresses giving each look a very unique appearance.
Zang Toi’s Spring 2013 Collection is magnifique
A few menswear looks were also shown with the same dress code: handsome in black silk tailcoat with attached sculpted collar, ivory silk dupioni tuxedo shirt and top hats.
All in all, Zang Toi fantastically showed nearly every facade of today’s women style: the business woman, the sexy and independent gal and last but not least the princess we all dream to be at some point in time. From the beginning to the end, the collection and music was marvelous. As Zang Toi walked the runway with muse Julie Macklowe, the audience rose to their feet and gave him a well deserved standing ovation for his elegant display that successfully captured the enchantment of the French Riviera. Chapeau Mr. Toi.
