NYFW Tadashi Shoji Fashion Show Summer/Spring 2015
Inspired by Venice and the reflection of the golden palace, Ca' d'Oro, on the water, this collection was destined to be beautiful. Tadashi Shoji's collection consisted solely of dresses and long gowns fit for a Venetian water goddess. In addition to classic all-white and all-black looks, he incorporated gorgeous shades of pastel, lace fabrics, and sheer inserts.
My favorite looks would definitely include this transparent black lace tulle gown, although I saw multiple women at Lincoln Center wearing very similar pieces.
I also have a particular love for this delicate peach lace dress. It has a boxy elegance to it and the color is absolutely ethereal. I would wear it year round, dressed up with tights and booties in the winter or sandals in the summer.
Lastly, I need to call attention to this white embroidered gown. It practically shimmered down the runway.
I ended up sitting next to one of the hairstylists from the show. I was interested to find out he and his team of about thirty were flown in for the week to style the hair for various runway shows, attending the shows and after parties along the way. I would have assumed the designers showing at NYFW would employ New Yorkers as their hair stylists, but apparently they just hire through agencies.
Overall, this show was a dream.
