Shanghai Fashion Week, is a fashion event held two times every year in Shanghai, each time lasting for seven days which is a part of Shanghai International Fashion Culture Festival which usually lasts for a month.
Supported by the Ministry of Commerce of P.R.China, Shanghai Fashion Week is a business and cultural event hosted by the Shanghai Municipal Government. With more and more young designers and models, Shanghai Fashion Week is aiming to build up an international and professional platform, to attract top design talents from all over the world. Forty-five shows are scheduled at the event sponsored by the Ministry of Commerce, with about 20 percent of them featuring international designers.
The current organiser of Shanghai Fashion Week is Shanghai Textile Group, who is in the centre of the textile and clothing network in China. In cooperation with many consulates of other countries in Shanghai, Shanghai Fashion Week also invites many international designers to come present their latest work. It’s also a venue for those designers who are targeting China.
As part of Fashion week, Mode Shanghai puts on the Fashion Trade show, offering an expansive window into China’s vast geography of regions and markets, while providing a channel for export sales of international brands and China’s emerging designers. In 2013 Mode Shanghai will collaborate with ENK International, the leading fashion apparel trade show producers headquartered in New York.
