Scenes from Shanghai Fashion Week

October 26th, 2011

Scenes of nature were the backdrop for Judy Hua’s show during Shanghai Fashion Week.

Publicist Candice Kraughto now divides her time between Hawaii and Shanghai, where she took in a few shows during Shanghai Fashion Week that ran from Oct. 20 to 26, and she sent along some photos and video from the event, showcasing the work of about 30 designers.

She took in the AmareSinh show featuring designs by Huy Tran on the 21st, and Judy Hua’s show on the 22nd, which she reports was difficult to see because of all the smoke pumped into the tent, which added to the drama of voluminous evening wear.

Chinese fashion looked costumey and ethnic as little as five years ago, but even then, as I studied the photos coming out of Hong Kong Fashion Week, I figured that, just as in other aspects of contemporary life, they’d catch up with the west pretty quickly. It’s just a matter of time that we’ll be just as familiar with their designers as we are with American and European greats.

Huy Tran graduated from New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, and in 2010 launched his label AmareSinh, based in New York City and  Shanghai.

The line for tickets.

Here’s a link to Amare Sinh’s amazing lookbook, with two pages shown above:

    I like the designs at the 4th photo since to me it is very stylish, elegant, cool color combination and very sassy.
