Tadashi Shoji’s Fall 2016 collection got a sexy upgrade as the designer dared with thigh-high slits, cutouts and embellished bodysuits — they were totally hot! Check out his latest line right here.
Tadashi Shoji is known for his elegant red carpet glamour and while the designer sent a slew of red-carpet-worthy dresses down the runway on Feb. 12 during NYFW in NYC, he also took his Fall 2016 collection in an unexpected direction, sighting tribal influence as he sent a sexier line down the runway than ever before. From daring slits up to the hip, second-skin bodysuits, strategic cutouts and form-fitting silhouettes, it definitely caught our attention.
Velvet, lace and sequins were prominent on the runway. While the embellished bodysuits certainly caught our eye, the dresses, Tadashi’s signature, were definitely the major highlights. A flowing silk chiffon gown with a high slit was perfect for a premiere or award show and illusion detailing was woven throughout the collection. The hair and makeup felt very grunge.
While the collection definitely went in a different direction, there were still gorgeous gowns and frocks that long-time fans of the brand, (like Octavia Spencer!), will still want to wear on the red carpet. A long-sleeved dress with a slit reminded us of something Kendall Jenner would have hanging in her closet, while the faux fur and bodysuits screamed Jennifer Lopez.
The front row was crowded with the stylish young celeb set, as Bailee Madison, Debby Ryan and our very own NYFW guest editor, Katherine McNamara, took in the show from the front row. In fact, a lacy look with an asymmetrical hemline would look amazing on the actress.
