Tadashi Shoji is a designer from Japan who had his breakthrough in LA. I've never seen any of his clothes before and thought this was an up-and-comer until I realised they just celebrated their 30th anniversary.
These gowns, 2-pieces and cocktail dresses are as you can see gorgeous and they are not even that expensive! Prices lie between $500-$800, which is almost what I spent on my (oh so ugly) prom dress when I was 15. And that was a rental!
