Tadashi Shoji showed his fall/winter 2017/2018 collection at the Skylight Clarkson at New York Fashion Week on February 9, 2017. The collection was absolutely stunning!

There was a secret, vintage nightclub vibe to the collection which hearkened back to the British Invasion. Velvet, silk and sequins were rich, luxurious, and flowing as each model glided down the runway. The colors were equally rich, deep, and intriguing. There was intricate brocade, lace, and silhouettes. The overall aesthetic was divine. Love!

The purple, red and all of the brocade took my breath away. If you can spot the black pantsuit above, it is the ensemble calling my name. I need to plan a trip to London, find a secret nightclub, and wear that outfit. It is pure perfection.

Which look on the Tadashi Shoji fall 2017 runway captures your attention?

Tadashi Shoji showed his fall/winter 2015/2016 collection on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at The Salon, Lincoln Center. As someone who has been a huge fan of Tadashi Shoji for over twenty years, I was thrilled to be able to see his new collection in person. The fall 2015 collection Tadashi Shoji presented on the runway in New York was everything a fan of the designer would expect; and more.

The show started off with beautiful, knee-length dresses, and as the show progressed, hemlines grew longer, and dreamier, full ball gowns appeared. It was an effortless collection with incredible, flattering lines, and flowing, feminine silhouettes. There was intricate lace, layers of sheer, dreamy fabrications, and an eye catching color palette. 

The colors on Tadashi Shoji’s fall 2015 runway featured chic black, black and white, sophisticated navy, vivid lavender, soft shades of purple, touches of gold, and bluish-green. It was a wonderland for the eyes, and inspiration for the fall. Pure genius.

Now, I just need to plan my fall and winter social calenders to include events which would be an ideal excuse for wearing one of these dresses. I am in love! What do you think of the collection?
