He used vibrant colored flowers juxtaposed with lace creating a much more casual approach with tropical leafy motifs embroidered throughout the collection. “It’s cute and you should wear it,” said Grace Sesser, freshmen.

“One hundred years ago, the Spanish Flu receded and the Roaring Twenties made its spirited debut. Here we are 100 years later. While we all do our best to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19, my hope for this season is a return to parties,” said Tadashi Shoji.

He will get the keys to the world’s most famous building, named “the most dramatic NYFW venue” by VOGUE. On this show, we will see Kylie Jenner making an appearance.
