Tadashi Shoji captures ladylike glamour

New York: Inspired by the waterways of Venice, intricate details with sheer transparencies created delicate illusions. Multi-coloured jeweled embellishments were inspired by Millefiori glass while colour was also stimulated by the shades of the city. Soft pastels of jade, blush, sunflower, and blue are layered with sheer fabrics while bolder ultramarine and navy are paired with white. Eveningwear was the star of the show with feminine lace dresses in flare and column shapes. –Jaclyn Jones
