LOCATION: Lincoln Centre.
MUSIC: Piano melodies and the upbeat song “Stay Awake” by London Grammar.
FRONT ROW ATTENDEES: June Ambrose & Jay Manuel.
In what is easily one of his most beautiful collections to date, Tadashi Shoji brought classic Venetian elegance to Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion week with his Spring Summer 2015 collection. Delicate and feminine, Shoji showed the most beautiful form hugging lace gowns in soft peach, ivory and lavender. He also created many mid-length dresses – one with a cape – many with half sleeves and collars.
The styling was beautiful: with models in minimal make up and hair pulled into a braided chignon, allowing the focus to remain on the stunning designs.
