Max Azria, Vassilios Kostetsos, and Zang Toi -The Spring 2011 Collections PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Zang Toi - Gown - Spring 2011 Collection Max Azria, Vassilios Kostetsos, and Zang Toi  showcased their impressive Spring 2011 Collections on the runways during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center in New York, and of course, Luxury Experience was there.

 

 

Designers Max Azria and Lubov Azria for the Max Azria label stated their vision "For Spring 2011, pure lines convey a vision of simplicity. Unstructured silhouettes are given new life to layers of gauze, silk georgette, and double-faced crepe. A-line dresses in asymmetrical hemlines inspires ease of movement, while sportswear pieces take on a casual, effortless approach. A fluid palette of warm beiges and creams blends into sorbet shades of peach and mint, as linen and white dissolves into classic colors of pale grey and black. Architectural details enhance the look with geometric cutouts and linear strap placement. Sculpted wooden bangles and slashed clutches balance suede booties and ankle-wrap sandals to complete the look."

Malaysian-born Designer Zang Toi launched his label Zang Toi in New York in 1989. His vision for his Spring 2011 Collection was the Lone Star Cowboy & The Texas Rose. The collection "draws a hint of inspiration from the Oscar-winning epic film, Giant. The collection showcases a line-up of lone star cowboy looks, along with glamorous dresses and gowns as a Texas Rose would have loved."
