Tadashi Shoji Spring 2015:Venice Dreams

What do you get when you combine the beautiful Italian city of Venice with a talent like Tadashi Shoji…romantic and enchanting gowns. Attending a Tadashi fashion show in itself is exciting all on its own. Every season his shows are one of the hottest tickets in town and celebrities like Octavia Spencer have for quite some time been a loyal client. For Spring 2015 Tadashi took us on a trip to the Golden Palace of Venice and his Italian inspiration could be seen throughout his collection.

Fabrics were custom designed with embroidered tulles and floral motif lace. The softness and romantic sense did not diminish the element of elegance. A regal sense could be captured on…

Edge and Elegance at Mathieu Mirano’s Spring ’15 Collection

Day one at New York Fashion Week took us to Hell’s Kitchen for the Mathieu Mirano Spring 2015 presentation. As you walked into the studio the room was beaming with sunlight with an all white background, while the models were surrounded with a few floral arrangements. The simplicity of this display allowed for the designs to take center stage. The palette was mostly black, white, ivory with some touches of red, orange and yellow but with standout nods to architecture and nature. The pieces were elegant with just enough edge to show Mathieu’s distinguished craftsmanship. It was all about the details in every garment.
