Without doubt, Zang Toi is my favorite show of the season. The one show that thrills me more than any other — that makes me think about why I love runway photography — is always Zang Toi. There’s a magical quality to a Zang Toi show. The models walk sedately and confidently. They don’t rush, they’re not in a hurry. You will wait for them. And the clothes— the movement of a skirt or the shine of an embellishment is enough to stop the heart. You know the feeling when you get it. There’s a collective sigh in the air, a shared feeling of appreciation for being able to take part in something so beautiful.
Zang Toi is also the only designer I’ve ever seen get a standing ovation every single season.
As we head into Spring 2015, I like to remind myself why I love fashion week and how grateful I am to have had so many unique experiences.
Here’s to another great season.
