EcoChic Shanghai

EcoChic Shanghai was a 40 designer sustainable fashion show containing a groundbreaking 13 Chinese designers that took place on 12 January 2008 at ’1933′, a revitalised concrete-clad Art Deco building in downtown Shanghai. The fashion show was in three parts to demonstrate a wider range of sustainable fashion techniques, many of which were relatively new concepts to a largely Chinese audience. Part 1 was vintage and secondhand clothing; part 2 was sustainable local and international ready-to-wear labels; and part 3 was sustainable couture made using sustainable textiles by local and international designers.

This show was art directed by Holly Suan Gray.

We loved it because the show boasted so many highly-enthused Chinese fashion designers who were met with an equally intrigued myriad of media that sparked what is now a growing sustainable fashion market in Shanghai and beyond.

EcoChic Shanghai Contained:

Part 1: Vintage and Secondhand

Including designs by Monique Lhuillier, Valentino, Matthew Williamson, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, and, naturally the vintage Chinese cheongsam.
