After the BCBG show and a quick break for some food (break? food? how did I get so lucky?) it was off to the Tadashi Shoji show, where the designer took us on a “journey along the Modern Silk Road.” The collection started with lots of embroidered lace dresses in rich blues, reds and black – some more form fitting, some with fuller skirts, and a few trapeze silhouettes that were just darling. From there, there were colorful striped dresses and gorgeous ikat-printed gowns. And of course, the collection wrapped up with some red carpet worthy dresses that were incredible to watch walk down the runway (if you’re interested, you can catch my shaky video of the final walk here).
While I can’t imagine I’ll have an occasion (or means) to wear any of these beautiful dresses anytime soon, I can’t wait to see who might wear one of the gowns on the red carpet (awards season predictions, anyone?). And I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for a cobalt dress like the one below – and really, any colorful embroidered lace dress for spring!
