Tadashi Shoji uses draping, ruching and shutter pleats along with luxurious fabrics such as jersey fabric, chiffon and lace to create a silhouette that flatters the plus size woman. Check out this cap sleeve twisted gown available up to a size 16 at Neiman Marcus. This gown is a perfect example of a piece that flatters!
Shoji is among only a handful of designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, David Meister and Michael Kors who make couture fashion for the plus size silhouette. Shoji’s designs go to a 16 and many styles go to a 24W.
His following is particularly strong among plus-size stars including Oscar Winner Octavia Spencer, Gabourey Sidibe, Queen Latifah, Oprah Winfrey and Mo’Nique.
Kudos to Tadashi Shoji! I love highlighting designers who do not discriminate and include curvy women!
