There’s Only One Source Of Inspiration

Tuesday night, up at Pier 59 Studios on the Chelsea Pier by the West Highway by the Hudson River where Daniel plus Lauren was at, it was a day to pay tribute, but the first and foremost tribute that came due were the nearly 3,000 casualties of September 11, 2001, which the runway show took a moment of silence to observe.

Soon after, Zang Toi began his very own tribute to one of his inspirations, the late, great Yves Saint Laurent, who always left Zang Toi at awe when doing his own work, so Zang Toi travelled to Marrakech, Morocco paying a visit to the Saint Laurent Museum, and as a result, Zang Toi created to spring/ summer 2019 collection that pays tribute to the master, who is Yves Saint Laurent.

With an astounding 30 looks strutting the catwalk on Tuesday evening, who can’t help but be star-struck on the Mondrian Couture Silk Faille Floor Length Scultped Vest in Black with Yves Blue Strapless Jumpsuit, the Mondrian Couture Silk Faille Oversize Cut-Away Coat Black Handloomed Wool/ Rayon Strapless Tunic and Legging, and the surely sleek and sexy Mondrian Crepe Chiffon High Square Neck Mini Caftan with Black Wolford Bodysuit.
