Japan-bred, Pasadena-based designer Tadashi Shoji may dress stars and Rose Queens, but his figure-flattering silhouettes are beloved by all. The red carpet gown guru's already stocked at department stores like Nordstrom and Bloomie's, but his concept shop at Glendale Galleria will offer quite a different experience, as you can see in the rendering blow.
Opening next Wednesday to Superdry on the first floor, the 2,200-square-foot space will feature experimental installations "aimed at elevating the customer experience." As far as the goods, expect to find Shoji's artful embroidered eveningwear, inventive dresses, and more luxe creations ($398 and up).
