Tadashi Shoji Spring/summer 2020 Runway Show

Represented by Linda Gaunt Communications.

Tadashi Shoji Spring 2020 is inspired by Once Upon a Time…in Japan. It’s a collection that plays between residing in fantasy while staying grounded in the real world, with pieces that focus on quiet luxury and cultural richness. Intricacy and refinement cultivate a deeper understanding of past and future, where new perspectives honor tradition and beauty transcends.

It’s a season inspired by rediscovering heritage. Lacquerware’s decorative motifs inspire intricate embroideries and lacquer-like sheens. The works of Ukiyo-e artists, Hokusai and Utamaro, are referenced in print and silhouette alike, where fluid draping and graceful shapes pair with obi-inspired knotting.

 
Tadashi Shoji

It’s a season inspired by expanding appreciation through beauty; by the elegance of Ikebana with bright, blossoming flowers, and by a wander through a Japanese garden, where chrysanthemums sparkle and peonies bloom.

It’s a season inspired by the feeling of enchantment when time and place define an everlasting moment. It’s an exciting conversation with a rider on the train who makes you think different. It’s the sensation of moving with elegance dressed in a Watteau gown, and it’s the flutter of emotion while watching cherry blossoms fall.

Once Upon a Time… in Japan, where what if comes true.

Makeup and beauty for the Tadashi Shoji Spring/Summer show was provided by the Honest Beauty and Orcé teams and led by makeup artist Daniel Martin, hair led by hair stylist Kevin Ryan for R Session Pro Tools, nail lacquer and design by Àuda.B and skin care prep by Tatcha.
