I also had a chance to see Zang Toi backstage. I watched them fill the goody bags with leggings, nail polish, and programs, and every other row of the seats got something different in their bag. I stayed in the studio (where the show happens) most of the time since I had to assist with something, but I watched them test the music, the smoke machine and the lights.
I also had a chance to watch a runway rehearsal where all the models practiced the order of when they were walking.
Models, rehearsing. (These are their own clothes, not the clothes they’ll be wearing for the show.)

Model #1, rehearsal. This model actually pantomimed putting his jacket on over his shoulder during rehearsal.
The shorter guy on the right to him who is pointing is Zang Toi, the designer. He was wearing a white plaid miniskirt and a jersey top.

Model #1, actual show.
