Taoray Wang Presents Fashion for Powerful Women at New York Fashion Week

NEW YORK – Chinese fashion designer Taoray Wang presented on Saturday her fall-winter collection in New York, where she highlighted the tailored suit, with which she seeks to dress powerful women from Lauren Hutton to Tiffany Trump, whom she considers her muses.

“Power means that we can cross the limits of age and agendas, before, power was equivalent to control, but it can be soft, it can be giving and sharing, that’s why I made this collection,” the designer told EFE after the parade.

Taoray Wang, Wang Tao’s professional name, explained that her designs are inspired both by actress Lauren Hutton, for her “style and attitude toward beauty, fashion and society,” and President Donald Trump’s youngest daughter, Tiffany, a millennial she sees as “safe and sophisticated” and who wears “colorful, feminine and sexy” outfits.

No wonder then that it is one of the favorite fashion houses of the 25-year-old Trump girl, who attended the front row of the show in one of her new, dark velvet dresses, along with her mother, Marla Maples, and presenter Kimberly Guilfoyle, the partner of President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Jr.

The designs shown by the Chinese firm were generally very accented at the waist, either through the tailoring of professional-style blazer jackets, the laces that marked some dresses, or the black belts that were superimposed on the coats.

The collection, called “Eternity,” displayed a range of colors from neutral black and gray, plain or discreet prints of leopard, snake, skate or “Prince of Wales,” to other more striking, such as orange rust or yellow egg yolk.

Wang also joined the trend to velvet, which has been seen this week in other parades, in some short dresses with longer sleeves, more in party style, in shades of night blue and purple combined with black, which had shoulder pads and structure at the top, another of the recurrent notes of her creations.

Taoray Wang also used suede in a pair of light brown cowboy-inspired outfits: two dresses with fringes on the chest, sleeves or skirt encircled by a thin black belt and complemented with brown leather boots.

Skirts above the knee predominated, with the exception of several models wearing wide trousers and American jacket, and legs were shown under steamy fabrics and asymmetrical cuts that dropped a tail on the side.

As for accessories, in addition to boots, the models, which wore very natural makeup, wore high stiletto heels, some with feathers on the ankle bracelet, and some wore dark hats with a French “chic” air.

“I think powerful women don’t necessarily need to be masculine, or serious: they can be feminine, sexy and happy, and I want to dress them in this new way of explaining power,” Wang said.

The fashion parade, which took place at Spring Studios, one of the venues of New York’s Fashion Week, brought together a majority of women without distinction of age, some with gray hair and others with small children, but many of them anxious to be photographed backstage with the designer.
