“A challenging and colorful feast for the eyes” is perhaps an adequate description for Peter Pilotto’s much anticipated collection. With its bright and bold prints juxtaposed against sharply tailored lines, looking at a piece can be much like looking into a chic, high-art kaleidoscope.

Tadashi Shoji’s designs are made to be in the spotlight. Born in Sendai, Japan in 1948, Shoji grew up with painting and drawing as his arts of choice. He later became a student of Fine Art in Tokyo. However, Shoji had a yearning to explore his artistic talents, so he set his sights on studying fashion design in the United States.
In 1973, Shoji enrolled in Los Angeles Trade Technical College while he apprenticed with notable Rock n Roll costume designer Bill Whitten, who had designed for the likes of Stevie Wonder and Elton John, among others. To understand the complexity and loveliness Shoji invokes in his designs, one must consider his dynamic background – the Eastern fine artist’s sensibility mixed with the Western fashion designer’s need to dazzle.
