Tadashi Shoji’s Eau de Rose

Tadashi_Shoji_Eau-de_Rose_03Well, it’s about time. After more than 30 years in the fashion industry, iconic fashion designer Tadashi is launching his first fragrance.

Following in the footprints of most high-end designers/brand, Tadashi Shoji is entering the fragrance market after having dressed such well-known Oscar winners M’onique and Olivia Spencer, as well as Sheryl Lee Ralph, Kate Beckindale, Dita Von Teese, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Williams, Ruby Rose, Keke Palmer, Julia Ormand, and many others.  And over the past decade the Tadashi Shoji brand has branched into the plus size/curvy, kids, bridal, and accessories markets, so it is only natural that the fragrance market would be Shoji’s next frontier.

“In the thirty plus years that I have been designing, I’ve learned that all women regardless of shape, size, and culture all want the same thing—to feel beautiful and confident in their own being,” explains Shoji. And women will feel equally beautiful in Tadashi Shoji’s debut fragrance, Eau de Rose.

Inspired by the women Shoji dresses and the gardens of Japan, Eau de Rose is feminine, sensual and fearless. The dominating note of rose leads the feminine composition while the deeper exotic essence of Oudh Oil creates an amorous finish. Fresh and complex, the surprising combinations are as multifaceted as the Tadashi Shoji woman.

The top notes of Eau de Rose are bergamot, lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, rhubarb, and blackcurrant. The body notes are rose, jasmine, osmanthus, lily of the valley, and cedarwood, while the dry down scents are musk, frankincense, labdanum, patchouli, rose absolute, and oudh.

The Eau de Rose collection retails at $27 to $135. Eau de Rose will launch exclusively at Lord & Taylor and on macys.com in April.

Editors’ Pick: VEGGANI: Fashionable Handbags with a Purpose

Collages1167In a market that is oversaturated with products that purport to be innovative and eco-friendly, it is so important for brands to be authentic and true to their product DNA. Due to the wealth of information readily available to consumers, it is so easy to get access to accurate information about brands and expose their true value through social media.

VEGGANI is a brand that, though in existence for a short time, is proving that their products are everything they purport to be. As a vegan handbag line, VEGGANI believes that consumers can possess fashion-forward handbags that protect animals and the planet.

Veggani Hi Res SS17Founder and Designer Laura de Waal’s goal in starting VEGGANI was to create stylish, functional, quality handbags that do not compromise VEGGANI’s ethics but promote them. All of VEGGANI’s handbags reflect a commitment to being socially responsible, environmentally conscious and animal friendly. One of the key elements of VEGGANI’s mission is not only helping impoverished communities, but to bring awareness to them. VEGGANI use high quality materials that are often recycled and/or repurposed. When possible, we work with and support smaller factories and artisan workshops. These efforts are never easy and require much more attention, research and heart than creating a product without a conscious.

OK, they use vegan material and faux fur in their handbags, not original concept. The linings are made from recycled fabric. Also been done before. Lastly, some of the metal hardware on VEGGANI handbags are created by artisans in a remote village in the Xieng Khouang Province in Northern Laos. Still, other philanthropic accessory brands have reached back to assist third world villages and communities.

That said; what sets VEGGANI apart from other brands that profess similar goals? Their design aesthetic and high-quality product is VEGGANI’s raison d’etre and reason consumers should take notice of the brand. Case in point is VEGGANI’s fashion forward and innovative cork-fabrication handbags. That’s right hand bags made out of cork!!

VEGGANI’s cork handbag comes in a pale tan cork or cork combined with a vegan leather in a range of colors. The cork bag is great as a casual bag, or a night out on the town bag or even for the fashionista who wants a bag that causes conversation. And the durability and quality of the cork bag goes without question.

Other great styles in the collection include vegan crocodile clutches, faux fur purses and shoulder bags, and vegan backpacks and travel bags. For more information, go to veggani.com.

Every fashion season Fashion Reverie prepares a list of essential items that every editor, stylist and/or industry professional just cannot do with out. With Lincoln Center and Bryant Park being a not too long ago memory, the stability of having a lot of fashion shows in mostly one place is a thing of the past. Though WME/IMG is using Pier 59, Superindustrio Studios, and Skylight at Clarkson Square as central locations, industry professionals, more than ever, will have to do a lot of scurrying around to go to the 200-plus fashion shows for fall 2017.

No need to fret, Fashion Reverie has you covered!! This season we are taking a slightly different approach to our Editors’ Essentials, including spas and restaurants that can be locally accessed for industry professionals who need a quick bite or a place to relax and refresh their creativity in between fashion shows.

New York Fashion Week can be really stressful and even though most of the shows are spread out all over Manhattan, fashion industry professionals will have some downtime. Why not spend those breaks at a great rejuvenation spa. La Casa Spa and Wellness Center, founded in 1993, La Casa Spa and Wellness Center enjoys the status of being the oldest spa in the city. La Casa represents the vision of its Founder and Director, Dr. Jane G. Goldberg.  La Casa Spa was born out of Jane’s understanding of a paramount need for a healing center in NYC in which holistic therapies would be offered. Jane has authored several highly acclaimed books on both psychological and physical health.

Our treatments and products begin with the idea that the skin is the door to inner health. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and serves as a link to all the other organs. Our approach is, then, to renew the body through the skin. We use various methods of tactile stimulation through ancient as well as modern massage techniques. We use methods of detoxification to cleanse and refine the skin; we then nourish the skin through careful application of our nutrient-rich formulas, selected especially to meet the unique needs of your skin.

La Casa Spa & Wellness Center offers colonics, floatation, cleansing and body massages, body wraps, facials, oxygen therapies and pedi-detox. The services are very affordable and they work. Fashion Reverie tried it out!!
