Tadashi Shoji Fall 2010

Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2010 collection is quite easily my favourite so far this fashion week.

I think my jaw is still at the tents.

Tadashi Shoji was inspired by patterns, shapes and textures. He experimented with new techniques to bring us a truly fabulous collection.

The colour palette consisted of teals, rich purples, greens plus shimmering silver and bronze.

The tiered and frayed cocktail dresses were playfully girlie but in a grown up way.

Metallic dresses gave the collection an edge with some accented with fringed detailing on the shoulders, whilst we also saw flirty lace dresses and gowns.

It wasn’t all about evening wear. We also saw some day dresses including one long-sleeved ivory number.

I loved the pailettes covered dresses, especially the asymmetrical gown above. It made my heart stop as it shimmered down the runway.

The fan pleated finale gown worn by Bruna is still giving me goosebumps. My neighbour and I gasped as the model walked the runway.

Fellow blogger Sydne tweeted “Wouldn’t Lucy Liu look majestic in Tadashi Shoji’s final fan pleated gown?”

Oh yes. Let’s pray.

Celebrity guests included Alfre Woodard, Adrienne Bailon, and Sherri Shepherd.

I’m so excited I could use my own pictures for this post.
