Tadashi Shoji made some wonderful statements yesterday with his Fall/Winter 2014 Collection to kick off the first evening of Mercedez Benz New York Fashion Week, 2014.
Showing styles that are both elegant and chic, the collection boasts powerul, but classic looks that turned heads with a varied palette range of vibrant reds, royal blues and purples, emerald greens, and soft neutrals.
Shoji describes the theme of the collection as, “Moorish Palaces by Moonlight” which is evident through his ornate use of lace, velvet, and chiffon whisking down the runway in elegant floor-length gowns. The hair stylist chose a Victorian-esque side-part for most of the models to highlight that nearly all of the models sported rounded gold teardrop shaped earrings. A smart way to draw the viewers eyes down the length of each dress.
Each model portrayed fantastic characters of aristocracy with bold attitudes which Shoji himself exemplified as he walked the show with a flaming red pair of pants! The ending was only suitable for such a magnificent show.
