Indeed, delicate and light for this world to perceive--that was the atmosphere at the Tadashi Shoji Fall 2015 Ready-To-Wear runway show. He combined two of our favorite things--flight and textiles. It helps that we have a certain experience in aviation to understand his collection's inspiration--the joy of flight! Sure the majority of us at some point have experience commercial flight, but there is something so elevating and personal when you co-pilot a private aircraft or sit in its position the least. The flight experience of soaring above land into the uncharted skies transforms into this free-spirited setting of the self away from the noise and into the stillness where our guide are the clouds and where we rest our dreams.
If we want to talk about one Tadashi piece that represented all of the above, it would be the black hand-cut tulle and silk organza feathered floor length cape--a pieced that gracefully voyage the runway grounded from by the gravity of the wearer. The experience of the collection inspirited the movement of the skies and its aerial mechanical aspects came from metallic embroideries of copper, gold, silver, custom-designed jacquards co-piloted by crystal hardware combined in feathered silk organza feathered skirts and faux fur. The Tadashi Shoji collection is far from wearing a piece of fabric, it is a prestige experience--one not experience by many in a lifetime. We say elevate yourself and take the pilot seat!
