You may have seen my post here about my trip down to Sea Island for the Zang Toi Fashion Show. As promised, here are some recap photos of the event. A huge thank you to Cloister Collection and Evelyne Talman for reaching out to me to attend this fashion extravaganza benefiting The Coastal Symphony of Georgia. Evelyn Talman was the main host of the event and had a Zang Toi Trunk Show in the days following the preview. A little more about the two stores: Cloister Collection is located on St. Simons and boasts ready to wear designers such as Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, Free People, Jack Rogers, Island Company, Hiho, Lisa Kerns Jewelry (a local jewelry designer) and many more. Evelyne Talman is known on the island as a go-to for evening and special occasion and cocktail attire. Evening designers include Kathy Hilton, Marchesa, Daymor, Mon Cheri, and Marissa Baratelli.
I cannot reiterate enough how fabulous the event was, and how breathtaking beautiful Toi’s pieces were. This was not my first Zang Toi fashion show (see here), so I didn’t really expect anything less than stunning. Many of the pieces debuted were from Toi’s Spring 2014 Collection – the theme of which was “Ballet Babe”. The show resembled an elegant ballet with hints of ruffles and tulle. The beauty was definitely in the little details – the tulle, the embellishments, and the floral elements, the pastel pinks and blues, etc.
I’m so happy Izzy & I could attend the event together, and it was so refreshing to get to visit Sea Island again. I was reminded of how Sea Island really is the perfect quick weekend getaway from Savannah – or really many places in the South. My mom, grandmother, Izzy, & I had an amazing dinner & cocktails after the show. I can’t wait to go back to visit. The photos above were my top favorites from the entire show, which one is your fav? Mine would have to be the 5th photo. Stunning back. Happy Wednesday! XO, Stefanie
