On this glorious day of New York Fashion Week I attended The Tadashi Shoji show at 10AM! I was very excited to see this collection because he is a designer I wear often. In fact I recently wore one of his gowns to one of my best friends weddings in August. Tadashi cuts for a real woman’s figure and I really appreciate that, being the curvy girl that I am. The fall 2016 collection was much sexier and darker than what we are used to from the esteemed designer. With very revealing body con dresses and jumpsuits to detailing with sleeves made to look like geometric lace tattoos and sequins up the wazoo, sultry and sophisticated developed a new edgy vibe on the runway. But of course, Tadashi still showcases his beautiful and whimsical even gowns that swept the runway like ethereal goddesses.
After Tadashi and grabbing tea with a few of my blogger friends (seen in last post) I ran my toosh over to Pier 59 with 10 minutes to get there from 32nd and 8th. Oy, It took forever to find a taxi and there were zero Uber cars available – but I finally found one! My cabbie was zipping through traffic like a super hero and got me to the show in 3 minutes! I still to this day do not know how he did this! It was a miracle! I ran so fast 2 blocks to get to the entrance because the cab wasn’t able to take me to the front. No big deal! I just needed to get inside, FAST!
I finally made it and the show was fantastic! Milly, known for its cool girl attire, like Tadashi also went a bit more sultry with its silhouettes and color palate. It almost appeared as if her “cool girl” grew up and was in the next stage of her life! With beautiful party dresses in bold prints, fur embellished sweaters, swing coats and mini skirts; Milly’s Fall 2016 woman is a power it girl who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it – even in a blouse with a sequin bra outline. A highlight for me was all of the great knits that were shown that are sure to keep you cozy all winter long in the chicest way possible.
