Tadashi Shoji

Tadashi Shoji, the founder and chief designer of the Tadashi Shoji collection was born and raised in Sendai, Japan. He began painting and drawing from a young age and eventually moved to Tokyo, where he studied fine art. His talent was soon recognized and he was recommended for an apprenticeship with Japan’s leading contemporary artist, Jiro Takamatsu, who is credited with paving the way for the modern art movement in Japan during the sixties.
However, it was not until Tadashi moved to Los Angeles in the seventies that he awakened his life-long passion, fashion design, in which he also earned a degree. Soon after university, Tadashi began working at a prominent clothing manufacturer and quickly climbed the ranks. Noticing that women had few choices when it came to special occasion dresses in the contemporary market, he launched his own collection in 1982.
For the next 25 years, the brand continued to thrive and in 2007, Tadashi debuted his higher-end runway collection at New York Fashion Week to rave reviews. In 2013, to mark his 30th anniversary as a designer, Tadashi released a capsule collection inspired by his greatest hits on TadashiShoji.com.
Today, the Tadashi Shoji collection is globally recognized and loved by devoted women ranging from busy working mothers to red carpet gracing celebrities. With his original designs and innovative collections, women regardless of shape or size are inspired to showcase their beauty and walk with confidence.

Ted has choreographed an enchanting AW14 collection and we’re letting you in on the new season pieces, suitable for every occasion.

Dazzling brights counteract summer’s fading light in a stunning display of pattern, movement and bold statement. For its autumn and winter 2014, the British label Ted Baker has maintained its clean design lines and elegance. There’s something about scarlet that steals the spotlight! Set to be AW14’s hottest new shade, red has been hinted as the new black for the season!

“It’s official: Ted’s calling time on the minimal movement in favor of head-turning hues and standout staples. Remember, she who dares, wins so make a style statement in a bold dress and contrast heels or slip on a signature skirt and an equally bright accompaniment. When in doubt, remember that the bolder, the better is the b-line to mastering this trend.”

“Sportswear as American as red, white, and blue is where Michael truly excels. Plaids and ginghams as fresh as Summer showed in sundresses and cropped pants paired with midriff-wrapped shirts. Crisp white shirts topped garden floral skirts and tulle skirts embroidered with daisies, lilacs and garden blossoms.”

3.1 Phillip Lim

“This was Phillip at his best – feminine with an edge and lots of great details his followers will love.  Baroque flourishes taken from an ancanthus leaf motif were swirled on fabrics and curled around the body to create shaped jackets, dresses and tops.  An engineered cane print mixed back to florals spoke to the mixed-prints trend we saw on nearly every runway.  Shades of cream with touches of  gold, peach, and apricot mixed on curvy tops and jackets that appeared over narrow pants, gym-inspired shorts, and A-line skirts and dresses.  Black and pine green served as a nice contrast to the pale palette, while leather details and utility straps kept the darker pieces interesting and cool.”

“Asian influences prevailed throughout Mrs. Herrera’s Spring collection that was made modern with floral photo prints and neoprene techno fabrics.  Kimono influences shone in jackets, necklines and sleeves, updating the ladylike sensibility of the  clothes.  White was the canvas for the pink and violet floral motifs throughout the show.  Dramatic evening dresses were embellished with tiles that had been printed with the floral then and then cut into irregular, geometric pieces and reapplied to create a shattered image. Cleverly cut midriff tops paired with long gowns gave a youthful approach to evening dressing, while flat sandals with an oriental feel lent freshness to both day and evening looks”

Herve Leger Herve Leger Herve Leger

“Orientalism was executed perfectly at Herve Leger by Lubov Azria.  Sexy, figure-conscious kimono-sleeve bodices topped pencil skirts, while orgami details on necklines gave a subtle nod to the Asian influence.  Mixed patterns and prints on the signature bandage knit lent an exoticism to the collection.  The blush-with-black trend continued here (often with geometric Cubist cutouts), but it’s the intensity of the color, the madcap macrame, and nomadic details that made this collection a triumph.”

“Oscar de la Renta always shows Spring is about prettiness, and this season he went to what he knows best: feminine elegance with flowers, lace, and touches of gingham toppers over trousers and sheer gingham skirts.  Abundant lace in black and white mixes floated down the runway in full, midi-skirts and dresses paired with flat sandals.  Colorful floral embroideries detailed pretty tulle and organza dresses that will thrill fans of every age. And for night, Pale pink lace, a bejeweled aqua gown, and dramatic combinations of black and white will keep Spring and Summer galas thoroughly glamorous.”

“Color was the name of the game on the runway at Lela Rose.  Brilliant fuchsia and canary yellow punctuated the graphic play of black and white, eventually giving way to a sea of blues.  A palette of blush and cream softened the mood, while ornate beading and shimmering organza lent lightness and textural interest.  Polka dots and garden roses were the prominent prints, showing up on everything from kimono jackets and flowing midi-skirts, to day dresses all Lela devotees will love to give a twirl this Spring.”

Anthroropologie Pintucked Prima Dress
A transitional ace, Hemant & Nandita’s silk shirtdress pairs perfectly with both strappy sandals and tall boots.
Garden Trimming Dress
Hand-cut appliques give this KAS New York shift dress a truly feminine feel. We love that by simply switching out flats for pumps we can easily take this look from desk to dinner.
Ravine Flared Dress
Don’t get us wrong, classic is key, but lately we’re loving deep hues (like eggplant, forest and navy) as a stand-in for black: they’re equally chic and slimming, but offer a hint of the unexpected. We’d add a statement necklace to the plunging V of this silky dress from Ali Ro.

Smile for the Camera: MICHAEL KORS’S mini Janey bag may have been inspired by analog camera cases, but it’s built for the digital generation. “I love the shape and structure of those old camera bags, but given that our phone is now our camera, this is the bag to make you edit,” he explains. consider this an opportunity to streamline your arsenal to include just the essentials.  “it’s also a rugged add-on to fall’s romantic and powdery fashion palette,” Kors says of the style, referencing its range-ready French calf leather, thick whipstitch detailing, and stirrup-like buckle.  The only dilemma? Deciding whether to wear that long strap over your shoulder or across the body.  Either way, it’s reason enough to strike a pose.

COSMETICS

Makeup How-To: Bronze Smokey EyeBronzes, coppers, and light browns make for a sultry date-night look and work on any eye color.

Smokey Eyes Tutorial Smokey Eyes Tutorial

Step 1 and 2. Bronze shadow works for every eye color. Press a medium bronze shadow from lash line to crease and softly blend the edges. Then, apply the same color underneath the lash line in a thick swipe.

Step 3 and 4. Eyeshadows stay longer when applied with a damp brush. Dampen an eyeliner brush to apply a brown shadow liner and blend upward. Then, use the same brown shadow underneath the lash line in a thin swipe.

Step 5 and 6. Make your eyes pop. Darken the lash line more with a black shadow liner and blend upward using the same damp brush. Be sure to do the same on the underneath lash line.

Step 7. Lightly add a shimmery shadow. Dab a copper shadow, a few shades lighter than the bronze one, across the lid to soften the look and add dimension.

Step 8. Very lightly trace your eye and blend in matte shadow. Outline the existing shadow with a matte brown one starting from the inner corner going all the way around the entire eye. This creates more depth and really plays up the smokiness of the look.

Step 9. Highlight the inner corner of your eye. Apply Make Up For Ever 7K Metal Gold Kohl Pencil ($17; makeupforever.com) just inside the matte brown shadow on the inner corner of the eye for contrast.

Step 10. Apply two coats of your favorite black mascara.

Combined with a smartly designed, flower-shaped elastomer brush, the creamy, quick-drying formula evenly coats even the smallest lashes.

What to Pack New York Fashion Week : Master the city’s uptown polish

Burgandy

THE HOT COLOR: Burgandy
Burgundy was the most prolific hue on the FW14 runways and, as a more sensual alternative to purist shades, it’s a wonder it hasn’t been in the spotlight sooner. For the most flattering color combination, pair with camel or blue, or simply wear head to toe, runway-style.
