Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week 2011 – Regal. Emotional. Touching. Those were the descriptions I overheard from people sitting around me at the Zang Toi Fall 2011 show. Zang Toi is a true showman with a flair for the dramatic. Models with sky high beehives glided down the runway to classical music. They looked like they were ready to attend a royal ball and dance to the Viennese Waltz. My favorite and most dramatic part of the Zang Toi Show was when model Ling lowered her fur wrap halfway down the catwalk to reveal a magnificent emerald collar that also draped her shoulders. Timeless Beauty was the inspiration. Zang Toi marches to his own beat and his beautiful pieces do not belong to the world of fast trends that disappear in a year, but pieces that one would treasure for ages.
