Artisanal lace, delicately printed chiffon, saturated red and blue organza gowns had a regal look perfect for a princess or red carpet award winner. While the tall and svelte models suggest otherwise, the dresses are actually quite flattering to a variety of bodies. The body conscious seams, flowing skirts and long coats are actually slimming to those who actually need it, or brings some curves to those who need those too. Maybe it would be beneficial for Tadashi Shoji to hire a diverse group of bodies for his next runway show to demonstrate that?
Another beautiful collection from a really great man.
