Tadashi Shoji presented his Spring Summer 2017 Collection during the New York Fashion Week. The collection is inspired by spiritual symbols and fauna in the works of artist Wu Junyong, featuring lace, embroidery, animal prints, feathers.
“All things change,” Buddha proclaimed at the end of his earthly journey. An array of wild animals surrounded him, from sinuous snakes to fearsome tigers. You recall the story of Noah’s Ark, this time as seen through the eyes of artist Wu Junyong’s fantastical retelling “The Flying Ark.” Watch as the creatures float upwards as if in a spiritual declaration. The playful imagery captures your dreamlike desires to rise. Look above. Take in the bright blue skies that are as vast as an ocean. The waves of clouds seem within reach. You long to be like the merciful goddesss Guanyin. She stands at the ready to lead the fallen. Glorious as the deity, your awakening begins. – from Tadashi Shoji
