Tadashi Shoji, the founder and chief designer of the Tadashi Shoji collection was born and raised in Sendai, Japan. He began painting and drawing from a young age and eventually moved to Tokyo, where he studied fine art. His talent was soon recognized and he was recommended for an apprenticeship with Japan’s leading contemporary artist, Jiro Takamatsu, who was credited with paving the way for the modern art movement in Japan during the sixties.
Today, the Tadashi Shoji collection is globally recognized and loved by devoted women ranging from busy working mothers to red carpet gracing celebrities. With his original designs and innovative collections, women regardless of shape or size are inspired to showcase their beauty and walk in confidence. It is this belief that drives Tadashi Shoji and his namesake brand. Employing expert techniques in draping, ruching and shutter pleats, each garment is masterfully tailored to flatter all figures.
For the spring 2015 Collection, Mr. Shoji created intricate detailing paired with playful transparencies. Insets of chain mesh on tulle ornament the bodices and sleeves and multi-colored jeweled embellishments are inspired by Millefiori glass. Sheer mesh necklines give the illusion of floating dresses. Softly sculpted silhouettes are introduced with unexpected twists. A glowing palette of pastels featuring frosted jade, pink shadow, and blue stone with a sprinkle of black floral motif lace are what filled his collection. His collection was soft, sensual, and polished for any woman who loves and is accustomed to Tadashi’s feminine cuts and silhouettes.
