Todays Schedule
Tadashi Shoji
ARISE Magazine African Icons Presentation

The Tadashi Shoji runway setup was soooo whimsical and amazing. I guess it was a little hint to because he when with a lot of lace and blues this season. I am a huge fan of lace! The dresses were either fitted to the tee or free flowing fabrics that accentuate all the right places.
Tadashi sure can make the hell out of a dress.

HELLO…..i almost died when i saw the last stunning white dress with side cutouts. it is freaking fabulous. i don’t know where I would wear such a dress but i am determined to have this…one day…after saving a lot. lol. needless to say Tadashi Shoji kicked ass.
I wonder if his home is filled with beautiful fabrics that he sleeps in…..

All of the Arise Magazine African Icons Collections were great but my favorite was definitely
Maki Oh. I loved the shape of the skirts and the use of fringe and velvet.
