There are many things to look forward to in a fashion show; especially one hosted by none other than the "Luxury In Motion" Mercedes-Benz. Yes, you have guessed it ladies and gents for The STYLO Fashion Grand Prix is back, bigger and better than ever.
|The opening of the Fashion Awards Night and Showcase|
Culminated with the much awaited Fashion Awards Gala, the awards night was the high spot of the three day fashion festival, true to a pure red-carpet event filled with glitz and glamour.
Of course; the great highlight of the glittering night of fashion excellence was fashion icon Zang Toi's fabulous creations; the one and only "Mystique of Venice" fresh from the runway off his recent New York Fashion Week Show.

|Subtle tones sets the mood for the collection|
Showcasing subtle hues, these headliner pieces kept up with the anticipation "Masquerade" theme of the night with ornate headpieces cutesy of AXXEZZ by Gina-Frias Himpe. Opened by upcoming violinist and model Josh Kua who performed on the sets of "Venice", full glory was recreated at the marquee complete with dramatic theatrics.
|Silhouettes and Cuts of Zang Toi's Collection|
We were presented with a showcase featuring beautiful sets of clothing crafted from different forms of fabrics; suited to fit silhouettes of many forms. Heavy embellishments dazzled each design; creating a rather elegant touch to the exquisite tones of Zang Toi's stunning pieces.

Now as stunning as these visionary styles were; nothing could compare to Zang Toi's final piece which closed his showcase. Clad in crimson read, the model walked the runway with the final gown which was a crimson fiery red; a recreation from Zang Toi of Hollywood Celebrity, Eva Longoria's gorgeous white-cut out dress worn at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2005.
This was the gown that drew the most gasps from the crowd during the show and was basically the spotlight of Zang Toi's entire sensational display.

As it were, Zang Toi was also awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award that night, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Zang Toi's fashion label; House of Toi. Now bearing in mind that this was only the second time this award was presented; with Datuk Jimmy Choo, world renowned shoe couturier being its first recipient in 2010, you can imagine what a great honor it was to be receiving it on that night.
All in all it was a great night, with a wonderful tribute to automobiles that commemorates its partnership with Mercedes-Benz, a fabulous showcase and finally ending with a rocking after party.
