Designer Zang Toi has dressed Sharon Stone, Eva Longoria and Saudi royals, and Melinda Gates once flew him to Seattle to design a dress for her.
Since opening his atelier in 1989, Toi has become known for collections that are equal parts craftsmanship, drama and glamour. Looking inside his home–a one-bedroom co-op in an Upper East Side 1901 townhouse where he’s lived for over a decade–he’s clearly taken his design sensibility out of the workroom into his life.
He descrives his New York Fifth Avenue Flat as a French Louis XV style, done in black, white and platinum to look like a black-and-white photograph. That is why he chose the Edwardian Collection to adorn his bathroom.
He talks about it in an interview that you can find here.
