The 58-year-old Malaysian born Toi came to the States 38 years ago and has become the darling of the fashion world. His youthful looks, wide smile, and effervescent personality are part of the Zang package-but it’s his perfectly constructed and tailored clothing that keep the clients coming back decades later. He counts the Trumps, Marla Maples, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and dozens of socialites as friends while globetrotting the world fitting royalty and fashionistas.
