Fashion Week is almost done but I still have a few more shows left to talk about. Zang Toi became a new favorite very fast.
There are a lot of pictures in this one since I really really liked Zang Toi. Everything was elegant, sleek, and different from all the other designers I’ve been seeing so far. I saw a lot of early 60s and late 50s influences as well. I tried to pick only my favorites from this batch, and somehow ended picking almost 3/4 of the set.
My most favorite piece from Zang Toi happens to be blurry, a pink gown with a jewel neckline and a low back, and a long dirdnl skirt. It had some contrasting light pink flowers by the lower back, and I couldn’t come near it (unfortunately!) but it looked to be a mixture of silk, tulle (underskirt?) and chiffon.
My second favorite is a lavender dress that has a bustier top with gold sequin embroidery by the top bodice, a straight skirt with gold sequin embroidery by the bottom, and a gathered skirt that was open along the front. I’ve seen a lot of late 50s early 60s sewing patterns that have this motif as well.
