Tadashi Shoji demonstrated once again why he is the master of the long, sweeping gown. He began the show with knits that highlighted the unstoppable fall trend of high waists. This continued throughout his collection, as many of the pieces had a knotted bodice that emphasized fit. Shoji paid close attention to volume control by balancing all of his dresses with Grecian inspired draping or high knotted waists. All of the shapes were particularly flattering to a woman’s body, no matter the body type.

As the collection progressed, silk and matelasse were introduced as upscale fabrics to complement the glam-worthy gowns. Interjections of jade, scarlet, and pure ivory made bold statements and further illuminated that Shoji is all about decadence. Overall, the line was rich in approachable beauty and enchantment.
