From the moment the first model stepped on the runway at Tadashi Shoji, it was clear inspiration came from the designer's Japanese roots. The show started with a red and black floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, cap sleeves and bow at the navel, and closed with a metallic take on the traditional silk kimono.
"It’s a collection that plays between residing in fantasy while staying grounded in the real world, with pieces that focus on quiet luxury and cultural richness. Intricacy and refinement cultivate a deeper understanding of past and future, where new perspectives honor tradition and beauty transcends," the show notes read.
Following the theme of fantasy, a few skirts mixed pastel tulles to create an almost unicorn or mermaid-esque look, a trend that the fashion, beauty and even food world has seen in recent years.
Standout pieces, however, included a blue and white floral off the shoulder gown and a pink and black floral wrap gown with puffed sleeves, lapels and a thigh-high slit.
