NYFW AW 2011: Zang Toi

Friday, February 25th, 2011

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.

Tiia Vanhatapio: Druidess

This one grabbed my attention immediately with the 2 opening models with reindeer antlers strapped to their heads. The line is based on the 1954 film “The White Deer”. Basic plot, woman goes to shaman for love life help and gets turned into a white reindeer vampire. I think this film needs to go on the netflix list! The theme is carried through the line with images of reindeer. fur, witchy druidess dresses, and long flowing robes.

Islaet: Fantasy Fantastic

Islaet opened with a solo opera performance that melted away into fun club inspired line. The themes explored were the contrasting of high society and the night life of an it girl. The line included more sophisticated day wear with more casual fun evening look.

NYFW: Richie Rich SS2011

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

First night out at NYFW SS2011 and Richie Rich brings out the grown up club kid in us!

Richie Rich’s debut solo act following Heatherette, PopLuxe, opened with ballerinas and a performance by DJ Mia Moretti and electric violinist Caitlin Moe. A It was a dance party filled with neon, lace, whips, chains, leather, studs and spandex. The show ended with Ellen DeGeneres and an explosion of glitter everywhere. We really loved those studded jackets!

Please send one to Ducky…. he’ll rock the shit out of one (Kitty wouldn’t mind one either).

Lastly, just for fun. We spotted our favorite hip hop-meets hardcore front man from Body Count, Ice T, checking out some bodies of his own.
