Tadashi Shoji took us all the way back to the 13th century with his Spring 2020 New York Fashion Week collection. Inspired by the Mongol Empire, the line featured various styles of dresses ranging from ballgowns to draped robes resembling “Tibetan monks.”
The collection included glamorous gloves, faux fur hats and statement necklaces and earrings. Pieces of fabric from the line were braided into the textured hair adding a flash of color in addition to vibrant equine blue eyeshadow.
Actress, Arielle Kebbel and Sports Illustrated model, Hunter McGrady admired the clothes designed for all sizes and Executive Fashion & Beauty Editor Harper's Bazaar, Avril Graham marveled at Shoji’s diversity; “Whether it’s a girl buying a prom dress or an actress wanting something for the red carpet he kind of covers the gamut.”
