Tadashi Shoji just celebrated thirty years as a successful designer. Tadashi is known for his ability to drape fabric like no other designer . He understands the female form and how to make women look and feel beautiful.
Tadashi has dressed many celebrities over the years for the red carpet events, recently best known for putting Octavia Spencer into her Oscar winning gown.
As I sat with Tadashi and listened to his life story beginning as a young man in Japan, my admiration for him grew exponentially.
As a young man Tadashi explored his world through many different types of jobs. He studied studio art, loved to read, and it wasn’t until he came to America that he discovered his passion for fabric. He compared sculpting the human form with clay to draping fabric on a woman’s body.
Tadashi Shoji is a true gentleman and an incredibly talented designer. If you own one of his dresses you know how transforming his dresses can be. You feel beautiful, comfortable and confident when you slip into one of his creations. If you don’t own one of his very reasonably priced dresses, I highly recommend that you go to Neiman Marcus, Tysons Galleria and try one on.
