Tadashi Shoji Fall 2013 Collection

All the guests were enjoying their conversation with fellow fashion enthusiasts while waiting for Tadashi Shoji’s Fall runway show to start.  When they were told to take their seats, there was a projection at the entrance of the catwalk of falling snow. This Zen-like image of the snow created calmness in the air which in turn allowed the audience to focus deeper into Tadashi Shoji’s enchanting show.

FW13 TADASHI SHOJI NEW YORK 02/07/2013

Inspired by the glorious era of Russian dynastic past, this Fall collection infused the imperial grace into Tadashi’s well-known elegant style.


Tadashi’s designs being a regular at red carpet events, showcased evening and cocktail dresses that were romantic and glorious. Details with cut velvets in folkloric racy design were soft and light while resonating profound richness. Voluminous silhouette mixed with guipure lace transformed the traditional look to the modern chic style. Layering heavily embroidered lace and using the precious gems lavishly, the movement of the dresses was as stupendous as the look itself. Covering the bare parts with boat-neck and modest hem length enhanced the sensual quality of the wearer alluringly. The incorporation of a sophisticated color pallet consisting of sapphire blue, burgundy, carmine red, pale pink, rose taupe and snow was bold and thus created a noble and majestic ambiance.

The refined-simple hair and make-up of the show magnified the artistry of Tadashi Shoji’s Design. With plenty of flyaway and frizz, the hair was twisted to the model’s left ear to right ear all the way. (Created by Rodney Cutler for Cutler/ULTA) Make-up was very clean, with a little bit of eye accentuation accompanied with a brownish-deep-bordeaux lip. (Created by Luc Bouchard and the MAC pro team)
