I really didn’t feel up for going out to fashion week this season. As many of you know, I lost my dad a few weeks ago so haven’t been much in the mood for socializing. BUT I have to say going to a fashion show can easily distract you. I spent my Sunday going to some of the best fashion shows – all in ONE day and now I am posting it all in ONE blog. So here you have it…a glimpse of the Fall 2011 Collections of Max Azria, Diane von Furstenberg, & one of my favorite designers, Zang Toi.
It’s nice to have friends in fashion. Thank’s Niki Cheng for dragging me out! Yes THE Niki Cheng that you see in the BoConcept commercials on tv and in the NYC cabs.

BACKSTAGE WITH ZANG TOI/ FASHION SHOW FALL 2011 COLLECTION:
Ok so now on to some dazzling designs by Zang Toi. Only a few.
Ever wonder what designers do the night before their fashion show? Ok, besides putting the last minute touches on their collection. Well, naturally designer, Zang Toi does that but he adds a lot more fun to the mix. Let me take you behind-the-scenes of his “Fashion Show Eve”.
He gathers his team and friends together and eats “Good Luck Chicken”. Sounds really yummy huh? And you probably want his Malaysian Fried Chicken recipe as well. Alright, I asked Zang and he said it was fine to divulge to my friends. I like to keep it very authentic on my blog. So brace yourself for all the work and ingredients involved with this superb recipe.
ZANG TOI”S FRIED CHICKEN RECIPE:
He basically just orders buckets of KFC! Accompanied by mashed potatoes, corn, and those delish biscuits.
Therefore, we help out by eating chicken.
Don’t mind if I do.
And we eat more finger-licking good chicken.
Zang has to eat too! Notice his glass. He doesn’t miss a trick.
By now I’m sure you’re sick at looking at KFC. So let’s get back to what goes on the night before a fashion show.
Well at Zang’s studio, beautiful women like The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s, Cynthia Bailey just happen to drop by to say hi.
BTW, she is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S in person. I wish I could rock a hat like hers. Looking good Cynthia.
There are also birthday and staff anniversary celebrations with pretty white cakes of course.
We make BIG pots of Tea
We get inspiration from our forefathers.
And finally add the finishing touches to the designs.
Stay tuned for pics of from his fashion show with Real Housewife NYC, Jill Zarin. To be continued.
