The last show I attended during New York Fashion Week was Zang Toi, the Malaysian-born designer known for his playful, feminine aesthetic. This season's collection, which marked the line's 25th anniversary, was an ode to the chic American women who have supported Toi since he burst onto the scene with vibrant gowns in the 90s. The Zang Toi girl presented here was a more timeless one. She dons blazers nipped at the waist and tosses a cashmere cardigan over her taffeta-lined ball skirt. Similarly luxurious pieces marched down the runway as "American woman" blared through the speakers. The grand finale featured a floor-legnth, embroidered ivory cape that was impossibly dramatic yet refined, prompting a standing ovation from the celeb-studded audience.
