Tadashi Shoji

Born and raised in Sendai, Japan, he began painting and drawing from a young age and eventually moved to Tokyo, where he studied fine art. After earning his degree in Fashion Design, Tadashi began working at a prominent clothing manufacturer but was troubled by the fact that women had few options for special occasion dresses in the contemporary market. He launched the Tadashi Shoji Runway collection during Fall 2007 NYFW to rave reviews. By featuring the utmost in luxury and elegance, the much anticipated collection continues to elevate and hone the brand's image in the marketplace. His designs have won a loyal following with women worldwide, including a wide range of celebrities from Octavia Spencer, Beyonce, and Blake Lively.
