Tadashi Shoji's show in the Salon was just what you'd expect from the Japanese-born designer. Beautiful eveningwear, with flattering detail work, which real women look good in and aren't afraid to wear. The collection consisted of solid colored cocktail dresses, elegant skirt and top ensembles, and evening gowns. Most designs were either covered with ruffles or displayed dramatic draping, although there were also a few made of lace and a couple of metallic dresses with slinky cutaways.

There were a handful of celebrities in the crowd. The relatively casually dressed Sherri Shepherd, a big Tadashi fan, sat with a more gussied up Alfe Woodard and a motorcycle jacketed Miss J.
