Towards the end of NYFW, I got a little sidetracked on posting rewiews of my favorite shows. One show that I particularly liked was Tadashi Shoji. I thought the dresses were just...well, pretty. Inspired by “the golden age of Shanghai,” Tadashi showed delicate lace, chiffon and velvet gowns in rich tones, all very 1920s in silhouette. The floral dresses that were shown were also 1920s inspired, and while in the 1920s would have been considered day dresses (if shown with shorter hemlines), they are in this millennium more wedding or daytime red carpet appropriate.
Please notice the last shot, the gorgeous lace detail on the back of the red velvet dress. That dress takes my breath away.
