There are no words for the pieces that came down the runway for Tadashi Shoji for fall 2012. The gowns were of absolute perfection ready to grace Oscar attendees, or an elegant event. Inspired by by the Royal Opulence of the Orient the pieces have a rich heritage with the royal colors fit for a Queen in deep reds, greens, golds and even the softer tones had a royal elegance to them. Fabric choices could not have picked better with brocade, velvets, lace, silk, chiffon and a mix of 2 in one garment. It was hard to choose a favorite but when a certain red velvet gown turned around to show the black lace in the back I was instantly in love.
