You know what’s funny about having an actual seat at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week? You actually can’t see the fashion quite as well as if you were in the photography pit (which I frequented this season). So I apologize upfront for the many heads in shots, but I do thank the Tadashi team immensely for being so kind as to seat me (it doesn’t happen every time, folks). With that being said, this show is always a fav of mine (and most) as the red carpet gowns that frequent this runway are truly spectacular. When it comes to red carpet season, I haven’t met a Tadashi I haven’t liked, frankly.
This man has extraordinary talent beyond words, and this spring season he takes us on a journey along the Modern Silk Road, where East meets West. Venetian cutwork and embroidered lace are quite possibly my favs (like I said, lace is huge for spring…and I love it in black more than ever). Printed chiffon, flowy silk and gowns draped in tulle are beauty at its highest. But, perhaps more than the fabrics and prints themselves, is the stunning use of cool hues in Jade, China Blue and Pale Iris. If I can find somewhere to go this spring, a chantilly lace gown or something with blue chiffon will be on my a-list. Mark my words.
P.S. I also included a video below so that maybe you can get a better look! And yes, that’s celeb stylist June Ambrose front row with her darling daughter taking photos. Like mama, like daughter!
