Designer Zang Toi's captivating runway show at Midtown Manhattan's renowned nightclub, Touch, celebrated expressive tailoring while transitioning between professional attire and complex eveningwear. Enveloped by the soft trances of Prince's Purple Rain, Toi began with a lineup of sequin-encrusted and closely tailored black dresses, each complimented by purple leggings. A stunning purple velvet suit kept closely in theme with the color purple in a two-piece, high-collared suit, crafted stylishly with a large mid-waist belt of the same material.
The two most illustrious looks were the closing evening gowns. The first to come down the runway was a purple floor-length gown with a silver-sequined corset adorned with an extravagant black, jeweled neckpiece, flowing down over the lapel while embracing the upper torso. The concluding look came as a purple rhinestone encrusted bodice with a double-split skirt and low cut top to emphasize Toi's anticipation for the future of the industry, while mastering elegance and tailored craftsmanship.
