Winding Down at Tadashi Shoji


The last show at Bryant Park’s Salon tent went to L.A.-based designer Tadashi Shoji, who sent out lots of ruffles and a strong palette inspired by one his favorite pastimes: gardening. “I have a nice big garden in L.A., and I thought of the black rose, then added more and more colors,” he said. “Most of the time, I’m doing really architectural forms, but this time it was more soft and organic.” Stylist Tina Chai was backstage after the show, rejoicing at the end of her long week, which included four shows and two presentations. “Tomorrow I’m going to sleep 14 hours, and then I have to catch up on all of my Oscar movies,” she said. “I’m going to have, like, eight hours of movies, and Benjamin Button—that will take up, like, half that time.” Not yet ready to switch gears, front-row guest Fabiola Beracasa still had her mind on the week’s sartorial offerings. “My favorite collection had to be Alexander Wang. I was getting this very Fly Girl vibe and a little Kelly Bundy,” she said. So, should we expect to see Fabiola rocking the early-nineties thing come fall? “I’ve been channeling Kelly Bundy for some time now,” she informed us. “It’s just not obvious, since I don’t look so much like her.”
