There’s no doubt now that Shanghai Fashion Week is ‘the’ fashion week in China,”. but Shenzhen fashion week is also worth keeping eye on.
Models present creations of La parlay and Ellassay at the end of the Fashion Shenzhen event during Milan Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017 in Milan, Italy, Sept. Kopenhagen Fur presented its debut show themed as ‘For Fashion’ at Shenzhen Fashion Week on March 21, 2017, in Shenzhen, south China’s Guangdong province. Instead of showing at Istanbul Fashion Week, she is going to Shenzhen Fashion Week next week, and she has showrooms in London and Guangzhou.
The designer swapped her New York Fashion Week presentation for one in China on March 18, and it was one of the highlights of Shenzhen Fashion Week, an event organized and funded by the Shenzhen People’s Government with WME-IMG. Dynamic, ambitious and sometimes chaotic, Shanghai Fashion Week is becoming a global center of gravity for Asia’s sprawling fashion trade. Doesn’t it feel like Fashion Week never really ends?
Shenzhen Design Week has programmed annually according to theme and focus. China (Shenzhen) International Fashion Tech Week In China is launched by Fashion Tech Industry Accelerator (FTIA), an acceleration program backed by Shenzhen Industrial Design Profession Association (SIDA) and The Council of Fashion Designers of Shenzhen in 2015. It was my third season attending these shows for a number of reasons: 1) I never want to miss the Marisfrolg show, which Soo Joo Park opened two seasons ago because they’re Shenzhen fashion royalty.
There is also the potential to show designs at Paris Fashion Week. More than 200 fashion designers will stage 60 shows during the fashion week, which is slated to attract at least 10,000 professional media professionals, buyers, trendsetters, supermodels and heavyweights from the global fashion industry. Held in Shenzhen, one of UNESCO’s Cities of Design, the fashion week is sponsored by the city government and organized by the Shenzhen Garment Industry Association and IMG, a global leader in fashion.
Shanghai Fashion Week’s sales floors have become so international, in fact, that brands from abroad now outnumber those from China at the four official trade shows.
