ZANG TOI was relaxed enough before his runway show- and this- before his racks of clothes arrived (yikes)…that he took the time to introduce media hovering about backstage--- to his beauty team.

Words and laughs…all around-with the 411 on the collaborative process that goes into a head to toe runway looks for his Fall/Winter 2014 collection:
PARIS OF THE ORIENT.
