NYFW Tadashi Shoji 17/18 “Love revolution”


This American based Japanese fashion designer is well know for his red carpet gowns and evening dresses when it comes to dressing all types of women, from all age range and a diverse ethnic group of clients and celebrities, his fashion sense  is on point .

Some of his well known clients is Oscar winner Octavia spencer, Dita Von Tease, and Kate Beckinsale. He uses a lot of figure flattering techniques ( draping, ruching, shutter pleats).


I find his 17/18 collection very wearable  high end classy, rock star, glam. A nice blend of  70s Mick Jagger, Jimmy Hendrix, Stevie Nicks with a touch of a goddess and renegade who isn’t afraid of live colors such as hot pink, passion red, electric purple and blue, in such textiles as see through, or velvet. For a bold woman who has her own way of defining femininity.

The bell sleeve and long v neck was repeatedly used to reinforce the garments quality cut and designs. Loved the electric blue, floral silk embroidery and the use of fuchsia to blend with the Forrest green tone. I can easily see Florence and the machine wear a beautiful gown from this designer. Be on the look out for his next collection, its always intriguing.
