Zang Toi’s Fall 2011 collection entitles “Timeless Beauties” was just that, elegant, timeless, and incredible beautiful. Toi used the sorts of fabrics you would expect to find on Seville Row; from cashmere and English wool tweeds to velvets and silks.
The real eye catchers were the immense Swarovski crystal grand gala necklaces, wrapping hundreds of Swarovski crystals from the top of the neck, down to the collar bones and around the shoulders. The sparkle off these pieces was just breathtaking. Toi’s signature style is one of elegance and luxury and this season’s collection stays true to his vision.
Ending his runway, Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York was wearing a strapless ballgown with nude beaded french lace encrusted with crystals. She was beaming the whole time. I have to say it was so great to see her really enjoying herself on the runway, especially after seeing such serious and austere models. It brought a smile to everyone’s face.
