Shanghai Fashion Week – The fashion world has had its eyes fixed firmly Shanghai last week, hoping to catch a glimpse of what China’s most creative minds represent the world wearing over the next 12 months.
China’s growing band of designers are slowly forcing their way onto the global stage and Shanghai Fashion Week certainly had its share of glitz and glamor.
As the event tries to hold his head higher than his rival in China International Fashion Week, held last month in the capital Beijing, a stream of international giants were brought to strut their stuff on runways that are created in ultra Shanghai cool-Xintiandi district.
The “Pearl of the Orient” (Shanghai was known as the decadent days of the years 1920 and ’30) hosted the likes of Italy and Sforza decks and fashionable styles of France agnès b – a brand that has a huge following in Asia. Dior was also in town, presenting China with his spring 2012 couture show.
But it seems that the 18 th edition of the Shanghai Fashion Extravaganza – which ended Tuesday – was mainly to promote the locals, with a collection of Chinese designers who monopolize the limelight – and all securities.
The international fashion industry tracker Nadine Kam (http://fashiontribe.staradvertiserblogs.com) was particularly impressed by the creations on display from the study of China Guan Zix, which is, apparently, a big fan of Angelina Jolie Hollywood icon , the woman who inspired the collection Guan “Killers”.
Kam says the designer said the collection was all about power, something Jolie has in abundance. “The women in this country need to have power. In China, a lot of girls, women live only for their family, their love, their children, but do not live for themselves. Women need power but they still need to be sexy. This collection uses leather to make a woman feel more powerful, with lace to make women more sexy, “was the explanation of the designer.
