My First New York Fashion Week with Tadashi Shoji

My First New York Fashion Week with Tadashi Shoji

I’m still on a total fashion high after my first time attending New York Fashion Week. As those of you who follow me on social media know, I’m honored to now be an official ambassador for Tadashi Shoji!  Getting to wear three beautiful dresses by Tadashi Shoji and attending their SS18 show was truly one of the most incredible experiences.  I decided to create a fabulous lookbook featuring these three gowns for you with New York City vibes of course.

Tadashi Shoji Lookbook


Elegance with coverage, the Duverny Gown is modest yet intricately filled with detail. I received so many compliments on the color and complexities of the design. Blousant sheer sleeves make room for comfort and dramatic effect whilst the bodice includes rose window embroidery with jewel tones. The chiffon gown is stunning on and a definite head turner!





Black floral prints on chiffon take over this picturesque gown. Thick black panels outline and accentuate the Clea Gown’s details and silhouette. A plunge neckline and skirt slits make this gown romantic and a true fairy tale must have. Lined with Tadashi Shoji’s signature nude jersey lining, it is quite sexy as well.  The movement is beautiful when you walk.  This gown is a total showstopper and very flattering.





This bias-cut velvet gown features cowl draped shoulders with ribbon detailing, a modernized Queen Anne neckline, and cascading floral embroidery across the bodice. The Mila Gown’s interior is fitted with a tailor-made stretch jersey lining.  It is beyond comfortable and hugs your curves in all of the right places.  This is a beautiful gown that you can wear this fall and winter to many special occasions.

This lookbook was photographed by the talented Lindsay Milner at the MADE Hotel New York.  And because I know we all love to see gowns in motion, I created a video for you as well:

Big thanks to Walter Barker for editing this video together.
