      15th Annual Nashville Symphony Fashion Show ft. Zang Toi

      Nashville’s leading runway show, presented through a partnership between the Nashville Symphony and Gus Mayer of Nashville, the 2020 Symphony Fashion Show will take place on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The featured designer is Zang Toi.

      Toi’s Fall 2019 America Collection will also be featured during a Trunk Show hosted by Gus Mayer on August 20-21, 2019. The designer will be in Nashville for the two-day event, and Gus Mayer will donate a portion of sales from the Trunk Show to the Symphony.

      Toi’s award-winning, 30-year career has been defined by a tradition of elegant designs and a passion for timeless beauty. Born in the small village of Kuala Krai in Kelantan, Malaysia, he came to New York City at the age of 20 to study at the distinguished Parsons School of Design. In 1989, he opened his atelier – quickly becoming one of the first Asian designers championed by renowned fashion editor Anna Wintour – and also received the prestigious Mouton Cadet Young Designer of the Year award, which annually recognizes the top young fashion designer in the United States.

      Since then, he has dressed Hollywood celebrities such as Sharon Stone, Elizabeth Taylor, Farrah Fawcett, Kristie Alley, Patti LaBelle, Gong Li, Eva Longoria and Heather Graham, and created luxurious looks for philanthropists and royalty, including Melinda Gates and Saudi Princess Haifa Bandar Al Saud. An avid philanthropist himself, Toi has also raised more than $700,000 for the fight against cancer.

      In September 2017, Toi opened his flagship boutique in New York, an 800-square-foot space complete with marble floors, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, crystal chandeliers and an oversize French mahogany table refinished with white lacquer and chrome.

      The Symphony Fashion Show is one of the Nashville Symphony’s two major fundraisers each year. Proceeds from the event support the organization’s education and community engagement programs – which annually reach tens of thousands of Middle Tennessee children and adults through free concerts, classroom activities, hands-on instruction and more – as well as helping to sustain the Nashville Symphony’s mission of achieving artistic excellence through outstanding performances, world premieres, commissions and GRAMMY®-winning recordings.

      Past designers for the Symphony Fashion Show have included Jason Wu, Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera, Brunello Cucinelli, Christian Siriano, Oscar de la Renta, MARCHESA, Monique Lhuillier, Isaac Mizrahi and Pamella Roland.

      The featured entertainer for the event will be announced early next year. Artists who have appeared as the featured entertainer at past events include Lauren Alaina, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Sara Evans, The Band Perry and Mandy Barnett.

      Chairmen Barbara Burns and Ashley Rosen.
