OLD WORLD GLAMOUR
Tadashi’s designs exude the essence of the female form, always flattering the feminine figure. Impressive craftsmanship as well as artistic embellishment has made him the favorite of celebrities and women dressed for red carpet events. The Tadashi lifestyle brand is found at major department stores in the US, China, and the Middle East, and is represented every season at New York’s Fashion Week.
With its global expansion, Tadashi Shoji recently celebrated the opening of the Tadashi premier boutique in Manila, at the Galerie on the second level of Rustan’s Makati. The 80-square-meter boutique is stark white with crystal chandeliers. Racks of luxury evening wear and cocktail dresses line the walls, with Tadashi’s show-stoppers displayed in stunning showcases. He extends his capabilities by introducing his children’s wear, shapewear, and evening bags.
Holding its 2018 fall/winter collection at his first-ever store opening in Manila more than attests to this, for the designer clothing brand blended sophistication with modernity using the finest of materials. With glitter, embroideries, knits, fringes, laces, tulles, peony prints, jeweled velvet clutches—it was an ethereal return to old world glamour, which defines this stylish brand. This collection boasts of bold hues, bare shoulders, whimsical draping, and loose silhouettes. “Tadashi dedicates his collection to women who enchant life with their sensuality, color, and joie de vivre.” Tadashi Shoji is exclusively available in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La and Rustan’s Cebu.
