Lurex was a major fabric used throughout the collection. This collection also had no shortage of inspiration with looks inspired by the late David Bowie, American Bandstand, and Flashdance.

This collection is the 1st collection since Webb stepping down as the creative director of Gap. My favorite looks from this collection are the plaid ones.

For this collection it was all about the tattoo parlor meets fashion.  Shoji communicates this with body stockings that mimic a full body tattoo. I think it was an interesting because it was creative without going overboard.
