Tadashi Shoji's Fall 2011 runway show featured elegant evening gowns inspired by the ancient gardens of the Far East.
Embellishments like feathers and hand-cut organza floral details lent drama while simple silhouettes and flowing fabrics gave each piece a light, airy feel.
The color palette was a harmonious blend of subtle neutral hues including pebble and ivory along with gemstone tones of purple, moss green, mustard and magenta.
My favorites included a green silk-chiffon v-neck gown, a begonia tiered fringe silk chiffon off-shoulder gown and of course, the purple rosette adorned strapless gown (which I think would look amazing on Zoe Saldana).
