NY FASHION WEEK: Tadashi Shoji Spring 2014

Spring is the time for light airy gowns and your most feminine self.  At least that is what Tadashi Shoji would argue in yesterday's beautiful show at NY Fashion Week.  Powdery pastels and delicate back and white with some silver thrown in was the color palette of his runway collection.

As tartan is one of the big trends for fall, Tadashi has evolved this trend into a gorgeous sheer glen plaid blended with embroidered lace for his own more elegant version. The long, fit and flared silhouettes reminded me of swans gliding down the catwalk.  Graceful celebs will no doubt grab these for their award show appearances next season.

His more contemporary looks featured a glittering embroidery that looked like fringe when it was used on the hem, or a skyline when used as a neckline.  It was deceptively simple.  There was a mix of fabric , crystal, beads, sequins and ring shaped metallic trim to create the movement and depth.

I won't fawn over this collection completely... There was one miss in the collection.  There was a dress with a fringed bodice right below the bust that would make anyone, including the model look downright matronly.  Unless the intended look was "haute lampshade" I can't imagine that particular dress coming down the red carpet.

What was your favorite look from this collection?  Does plaid and lace work for you?
