Designer Details: Tadashi Shoji

There will be a time in our lives when we need “the” dress. I’m not talking about a wedding dress either. I’m talking about a special occasion dress or evening gown that is classy, chic, and constructed beautifully. I think designer Tadashi Shoji was born so he could create these designs for us and bring them into our fashion lives. Just sayin’!

ts Born in Japan, Tadashi Shoji originally started out as an artist, but discovered his love for fashion design as a student in Los Angeles. After working in costume design and obtaining his fashion degree, he launched his own collection in 1982. Today, he’s one of the world’s most renowned fashion designers.

You may have seen me wearing one of his dresses in a style challenge with other bloggers a few months ago. He does have a Plus Size Evening Shop (a.k.a Queen collection) that carries sizes 14Q-24Q / 1X-3X and the dresses are stunning. His designs in this shop currently range in price from $168-$568.

Below you’ll find his newest pieces from his web site, but you can also find them on Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Saks Fifth Avenue web sites.
