I first discovered Tadashi Shoji last year when I wandered in to his boutique in South Coast Plaza in LA. I was shopping for an evening dress for a ball I was attending with my husband and I walked in oblivious to his designs or the beauty that lie inside.
His dresses are ultra feminine. Sexy, but not too revealing. I’ve included below some photos of his recent SS13 collection and also his AW12 collection. Each season brings different characteristics in design so to get the full idea you really need to look at both seasons. His 2012 fall collection was made up of some very elegant, velvet numbers and intricate detailing so it will be interesting to see what saunters down the runway next week (and possibly into my wardrobe for this years ball) 😉
