Tadashi Shoji mixed plus-size models with the usual ultra-thin ones at New York Fashion Week.

He rolled out evening gowns Thursday with high slits, capes and sari influences in deep reds and blues, along with classic black. He elevated the glam factor with sequins, lace and velvet.

A one-shoulder gown in a silver and black print fell just below the knee in front but trailed on the runway in the back in grand fashion. He paired it with black evening gloves.

Shoji said in a backstage interview he was inspired by a favorite vacation spot, Southeast Asia, along with the monks of his religion, Buddhism.
