Zang Toi’s Design for the Winter Ball

New York based Malaysian fashion designer Zang Toi has signed on as The Encore sponsor of The School of American Ballet’s Winter Ball, taking place in New York on March 9th, 2009.

In anticipation of the event, we’ve asked for this exclusive preview of the beautiful gown he designed for San Francisco-based philanthropist Pamela Joyner, who is an Event Chair.

Zang describes Ms. Joyner’s couture gown as a silk and stain strapless “Diva Gown” with silver beading and embroidered French chantily lace. He has also designed the gown that Pamela Joyner’s daughter, Michelle Giuffrida, will wear.

Azadeh’s Moment

San Francisco designer Azadeh Riaz received the best possible promotional coverage this weekend when the City’s unofficial Social Ambassador to Washington D.C., Pamela Joyner, was photographed in the Chronicle wearing pieces the designer had created for her to wear to various Inauguration week activities.

We find that Azadeh’s designs have a body-conscious, sexy cut, yet are also very regal. Perhaps it has something to do with her background — she spent five years at the beginning of her career by designing for the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia!
