Tadashi Shoji’s runway show which debuted its SS17 Collection at New York Fashion Week at The Arc, Skylight at Moynihan Station on September 9th, 2016 was nothing short of spectacular. With inspiration from artist Wu Junyong, whose video of ‘The Flying Ark’ opened the runway show, the scene was set.
With actresses Katie Cassidy, Morgan Stewart, Dorothy Wang, Elisa Johnson, Ezra William
and Bloggers Jessica Wang, Courtney Kerr, Sai de Silva, Jeanne Grey, Jessi Malay in attendance, the show wasn't without star appeal.
The collection was a mix of sexy yet ethereal delicate dresses that omitted vibes of air and elegance, as Shoji's incredible dresses wafted down the runway. Floating so effortlessly they brought thoughts of parachute’s and warm summer days to mind.
To name just a few of the highlights of the show; a stunning bird embodied dress, which clearly reflected Tashoji’s inspiration of the Arc, freedom and 'flight' that so cohesively interwove itself throughout the collection. Another highlight was a stunning black and lace low cut dress and a knock out blue long embroidered slit blue dress that simply billowed down the catwalk.
