Tadashi Shoji presented a great show that began with a pastel illustration cascaded on two big projections on each side. A short delightful film with watercolor pastel animals and a fallen tree took over the room; followed by a grand opening of lights as the models made their entrance down the runway walking with an ethereal air. Feminine designs with soft silhouettes complimented the body with a generous gifting of lace and trims charmed with ostrich feathers. The color specter ran boldly, offering neutrals with a heightened climaxed delivery of vibrant blues, raging reds and plush pinks. As always, a stunningly sensation of a presentation.
