Designer Zang Toi Supports Cancer Research in Phoenix

Saks Fifth Avenue showcases Zang Toi spring 2019 collection for Key to the Cure

The 20th annual Key to the Cure at Saks Fifth Avenue in Biltmore Fashion Park presented a high-energy runway show featuring more than 50 ‘Best of Saks’ fall outfits. Designer Zang Toi delighted attendees with a special appearance. His spring 2019 collection “Vive le Yves” graced the runway with rich hues of green and blue, and iconic graphic patterns.

“This collection is a fan letter to my favorite designer, the late Yves Saint Laurent,” says Toi. A trip to Marrakech with the particular goal of visiting Saint Laurent’s favorite place was the catalyst for his lineup. While sketching the collection in Morocco, Toi decided to incorporate Majorelle blue, lush green and Mondrian patterns.

Fabric plays a major role in the collection, which includes hammered silk satin originally created by Abraham in Switzerland for Yves Saint Laurent couture collection in the 1970s, as well as couture silk faille and satin, French Chantilly lace trim and hand-beaded butterflies.

The Oct. 5 breakfast event benefited Translational Genomics Research Institute in its research to find cures for women’s cancers and other diseases.
