2013 – Empress Presents ‘Shanghai Fashion Week S/S Opening Show – Jeff Garner’s PROPHITEK’
In April 2003, a new international fashion event emerged from the shores of the Bund in Shanghai, marking it as the newest fashion capital of the world.
During the first five years, Shanghai Fashion Week’s (SFW) main objective was to introduce top international designers to China. In the second five-year plan, SFW redirected its attention and support to Chinese designers and independent designers and has since achieved remarkable results.
Since its inception, Shanghai Fashion Week has had 150 designer shows, including top international brands like Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin and Paul & Shark. Alongside a progressive partnership, Empress has showcased independent emerging designers including Paris Fashion week's Upcoming Designer of the Year Jeff Garner.
