While the north east was plummeted with its biggest snowstorm of the season, models, designers and fashion connoisseurs were anxiously waiting to kick off fashion week. Japanese designer Tadashi Shoji's tasteful but lively throwback show set the precedent for a big week in New York.

His Fall/Winter collection was inspired by a "love revolution". "Any size, any woman, any country. That's what this show is about," the designer told Reuters. Models donned fringes, velvet dresses and bell sleeves. His retro-inspired design emulated this revolutionary message. With lace, sheer necklines and ankle-length skirts and dresses, his poignant and relevant words were evident.

As for hair and beauty, Tadashi's models all sported long, smooth bangs that sat on their eyelashes. Some were glammed up with intricate rhinestone designs around their eyes and with shiny lips.
