“Every woman, regardless of size and shape, deserves to feel confident, comfortable and gorgeous.” It is this belief that drives Tadashi Shoji and his namesake brand. Employing expert techniques in draping, ruching and shutter pleats, each garment is masterfully tailored to flatter all figures. Tadashi also carefully chooses fabrics with stretch, such as luxe jersey, embroidered lace and featherweight tulle to render a custom-made feel. So, whether it’s a cocktail dress or floor-length gown, the wearer looks red-carpet polished, with all the effortlessness of slipping on her favorit e T-shirt. From the fabric to the fit, a Tadashi dress is infused with glamour and ease.
Chow and Osborne design and manufacture the full range of their collections in New York, incorporating fabric from the best Italian, Japanese and American mills. It is paramount to the Public School brand DNA that it keeps its production roots in New York, supporting local tailors, pattern makers and skilled garment workers. It is these genuine and personal experiences throughout the development process along with their design mantra ”finding perfection in imperfection,”” that epitomize the brand and its commitment to produce only the finest quality clothing.
Identity, image development, aspiration and the heroic figure,” explains Lauren, “are all themes that I explore in my work.” Following the success of his work as a painter and sculptor, Greg Lauren created his very first fashion collection, which debuted at Barneys New York in February 2011. Combining “forgotten materials,” as Lauren likes to describe the repurposed fabrics he uses, he was able to create a distinctly modern line that included deconstructed suits, shirts, and even tuxedos retaining the original features of the chosen material, such as grommets, snaps and button holes.
