Zang Toi is the designer who, during the last seasons, manages to raise all people from their seats at the finale of his shows. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection presented at Lincoln Center during MB Fashion Week in NYC was no exception to this rule. Once again there was a main cultural influence which is this case was Africa and a major celebrity at the end, showcasing his most impressive creation for the season, a role assigned this time to Kirstie Alley, a woman with many fans all over the US. Everything started with an impressive outfit dominated by a huge turban in earthy tone, followed by caftans and easy-to-wear power suits and ensembles in nude shades and black. The greatest contrast in the middle was black & white while at the end of the show we enjoyed – as we always do – his seasonal color duo which is now black with blue. The result of this magical mix was luxurious, impressive and majestic. Opulence and glamour were once again the basic attributes of his precious gowns that call for princesses and red carpet creatures to adopt them in their wardrobes. Many of them were adorned with gems, while others with golden chains on the back and shoulders. In between, one could notice some disco girl sparkle & vibes, especially those ones at the outfit with the golden leggings. The whole collection was smoothly diverse incorporating styles for many different types of women, classic and avant-garde. What was equally delicious there, was the hairstyling. All models had adorable and sleek updos which resembled works of sculpture. I’ll ask for a similar one at my hairdresser’s for a Christmas look and I’m suggesting the same to the brides-to-be of this season.
