The Yuyuan malls in the city’s old town will undergo the largest expansion in its more than 460-year history by integrating the lane-style neighborhood with the Bund Financial Center.

The fashion event is also part of a series of activities designed to mitigate the “spillover effect” of the China International Import Expo, which will be held from November 5 to 10 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in suburban Qingpu District.

The focus of the couture week will be on Chinese traditions and the “intangible cultural heritage” category designated by the UN.

According to the federation, it is expected to contribute to the improvement of Shanghai’s soft power and the promotion of Chinese culture abroad.

Shanghai plans to increase its urban “soft power” to match its aspirations to become a socialist city with global influence by 2035. The city’s main objective is to become an international design capital with thriving design and innovation sectors and international professionals.

Haute couture week was established ten years ago to help young local fashion designers develop their creative skills. It has become one of the most important fashion events in China and around the world.
