Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2012 collection was presented during New York Fashion Week yesterday afternoon.

The designer, who’s known for dressing Oscar, SAG and Golden Globe Award winning actresses, was inspired by the prosperous Golden Age of Shanghai in a glamorous, modern time.

He romanced us with opulent jewel-tone dresses and gowns with lace pattern tiers, and cowl-back gowns with embellished lace panels.

The collection ranged from floaty chiffon, lace and silk to a much heavier velvet.

Rodney Cutler for Cutler/Redken styled the models’ hair into a simple side-parted bun to complement their striking red pouts.
