Milano Unica Show, Little Italy in Pudong

Shanghai Fashion Week closed with a bang, as the titans of the Chinese fashion industry (Franca Sozzani, Hong Huang, and Uma Wang) hosted an amazing event promoting young Chinese talents.

Hong Huang of iLook and BNC played hostess of the show, which showcased 3 young Chinese designers and 3 young Italian designers.

Franca Sozzani of Vogue Italia was the mastermind behind the whole production, which was a success by virtually every measure. She has been an ardent supporter of the Mainland’s fashion industry for a while, and many people are very grateful for her contributions to the domestic cause.

Veteran Chinese designer Uma Wang of her eponymous label was one of the honorary guests, as was one of my favorite Chinese photographers Chen Man.

But I thought only a video could capture the true atmosphere of the shows, so here are the short but strong presentations of Vega Wang, Xander Zhou, and Huishan Zhang:
