Taoray Wang’s newly launched women’s line attracted a full house of fashion lovers, including some special guests from US President Donald Trump’s family.

Taoray Wang is the brand of Chinese fashion designer Wang Tao, who debuted her latest collection, “Eternity”, on Saturday at Spring Studios.

Seated in the front row at the runway show was Tiffany Trump, the youngest daughter of the US president, alongside her boyfriend Michael Boulos, her mother Marla Maples (who was married to Trump from 1993 to 1999), and Kimberly Guilfoyle, co-host of The Five on Fox News and the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.

“I wear Taoray Wang on my show on Fox News all the time,” Guilfoyle said. “Beautiful designs, vibrant colors, very cutting-edge and translates well on television.”

“She (Wang) is really, truly a modern extraordinary designer and gaining quite a following in the United States,” Guilfoyle said.

Tiffany Trump, wearing a velvet dress in night blue and purple tones combined with black from the newest collection on Saturday’s runway show, is well-known for favoring Wang’s design. She wore a Taoray Wang outfit at her father’s inauguration in January 2017.

According to Wang, “Eternity” is a celebration of “Eternal Beauty” from two women who are from different generations and dress in distinct styles.

“I am inspired by the magnificent women that have redefined the standards of beauty, crossing age boundaries to defy fashion’s elusive beauty standards,” said Wang. “While American model Lauren Hutton symbolized handsome and unconventional beauty in the 1970s, Tiffany Trump is representative of millennials’ favorite feminine and sexy look.”

Even though Hutton and the young Trump have little in common in their dress styles, both are confident and courageous, said Wang.

“The power can cross boundaries and can be shared. I want to encourage women to express themselves,” she said.

Tiffany Trump, 25, who is attending law school at Georgetown University, said Wang’s designs are always evolving and that the designer is able to add something special each time she comes to New York Fashion Week.

2019 Spring marks Wang’s 10th appearance at New York Fashion Week. She has become famous for her flair in using basic colors such as gray, white and black to create elegant and confident looks for career women, and added different shades of yellow and blue to create more warm, bright and energetic looks.

“Sand and saltwater are two distinct substances, but together they make beautiful beaches,” Wang explained her design concept. “Just like US and China, the two countries and their cultures are so different, but they are so beautiful together. We need to learn how to be with each other peacefully.”

With a degree in history from East China Normal University in Shanghai, Wang took a second degree in fashion from the top Japanese fashion institute Tokyo Mode Gakuen, where she received five international awards in design.

Wang launched her namesake brand in 2014, bringing her collections to the global woman who appreciates refined tailoring, sophisticated silhouettes and luxurious fabrics.
