Tonight my husband and I saw Zang Toi‘s spring line at a fundraiser Zang held for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. We saw both singer Patti LaBelle and DJ drag queen Lady Bunny there. Who is the greater diva? I would have liked to see them wrestle for the title. Maybe next season! The theme for the collection was “Chinoiserie Garden.” I must apologize, because the photo below has no Chinoiserie in it at all and doesn’t particularly illustrate anything beyond what I wore to the party.
I got that relatively subdued, pinstriped Zang a little while ago. It looks much more fabulous in person than in this lying photograph … I swear! Most of Zang’s clothes are more dramatic than this dress. He’s all into the glamour. We like that! I wore this light blue Zang last December. Too bad you can’t see the kicky hemline in this picture:
But my all-time favorite Zang was this green gown with matching fan:
Last season, I did some gold-plated sterling silver jewelry for Zang’s runway show. (All runway photos are courtesy of Zang Toi.) A cuff:
But my all-time fondest memory of Zang is the first time my husband met him. I’m pretty sure it was also the first time my husband ever shook hands with a man who was wearing a mini kilt but my husband carried it off with aplomb. And … nice legs, Zang! All the ladies are jealous, I’m telling you.
