 New York Fashion Week.

On Tuesday February 12th, couture fashion designer Zang Toi presented his Zang Toi Fall Winter 2024 collection during New York Fashion Week. The runway show was held at the Park Avenue Christian Church located at 1010 Park Avenue. The collection paid tribute to Mr. Toi's late brother Toi See Luon. Mr. Toi was inspired inspired by Parisienne Chic Couture with a touch of rebellion seen in the Saint Germain neighborhood of Paris.

Saint Germain des Prés is a neighborhood in Paris located "Left of the River (Seine)" or as the French say Rive Gauche. The area is part of the 6th arrondissement, which is just south of the Louvre Museum. It has a bohemian vibe and one of it famous cafe's is Les Deux Magots. By design, the backdrop to this fashion show was a black and white photo of an empty table with two chairs, two tea cups, one muffin, a bouquet of flowers and the Eiffel Tower in the background.

The main colors of the collection were red, black, grey and some pops of shocking pink. A scarlet cashmere/silk turtleneck jumpshorts, with a sequin & crystal tulle ballskirt stole the show. The long sleeve top covered the upper body fully providing a conservative touch; while its form fitted cut created a seductive silhouette. The flowers on the skirt added a fairytale-princess like cuteness. 

In keeping with the spirit of stately chic, a charcoal English wool tweed cape made its stealthy yet powerful way down the catwalk. Not too many women can wear a cape and look cool, however Mr. Toi paired it with a black turtleneck jump short that gives it range and wearability  for all age ranges of women. Confidence and separation from the common was the message transmitted as the modeled gleamed down the darkened runway. Zang Toi created another elegant, couture collection.
