Waiting for the show to start, I wasn’t really convinced how good a fashion show would be in the middle of desert. After all my favorite goes to those in Europe -

However I was instantly captivated by the renowned couture designer’s highly elegant fashion show. Zang Toi has built timeless style and tradition for over 20 years. US editor-in-chief Anna Wintour featured Toi in the March 1990 issue. He has also been on other major publications: Vanity Fair, Time and New York Times. Toi has dressed A-list celebrities such as: Sharon Stone, Eva Longoria, Elizabeth Taylor etc.

Personally passionate about Ballet, Zang Toi started his show with his Ballet inspired spring 2014 collection. An angel faced model made the opening of the night; walked slowly out by waving her chiffon train, creating a beautiful butterfly image –

Then Toi brings us back to 1930′s with the elegant Shanghai fusion. Green traditionally isn’t a color I’d challenge but Toi told a different story on how to be elegant and chic in emerald -
