Shanghai Fashion Week 08

I was involved in The 6th Shanghai Fashion Week International Showcase at Fu Xing Park.The layout was the same as last year. Huge big white tent smacked in the middle of the park. The sponsors for the night were MAC, VOSS, Roewe, Perrier Jouet, Toni & Guy, Le Royal Meridien.

International and local designers presented their 2009 Soring & Summer Collections. The designers were Lavie (China), Pierluigi Fucci (Italy), Green by Adeline (USA), ZhaiYanXin (China), Yuki Torii (Japan), YL-L (China), Aminaka Wilmont (UK), Zuura (China), Guy Laroche (France) & Louise Amstrup (UK).

Before the show I had to figure out what to wear so everything was thrown out on the table

This was one of the outfit I wore for one of the show. Pretty simple as I was not feeling well but I had to attend. Look at my LAMB bag so vintage inspired I just love it!
I was ushered to the VIP room which was pretty standard and had a few glasses of Perrier Jouet (I LOVE) and VOSS organic water (taste the same as any other water though).
Went and have a scout around the backstage, this is the makeup room.

The long que

The Stage

I was sitting next to Wang Wei which is one of the judges of Project Runway China - My Style. Going anywhere with him can be quite troublesome as he seems to know everyone and anyone. So alot of small talk and hi hello bye...

The show - sorry guys I was using my new canon camera and I did not know how to use the night shot and was just playing around with it. Anyway here are a few blurred or over exposed pics.

Overall the shows was not bad. I thoroughly enjoyed it and of course alot of catching up with old friends.
As usual, the show would not be complete without supper.
This is some old Shanghainese drink which was famous in the 30s. Orange juice with ice cream. How SINFUL!!!!

Interesting post. Last saturday I was invited to the China Fashion Awards, but I left after an hour since the show was pretty boring! Last year's show was much more exciting with Maggie Cheung ^_^
