Miuccia Prada Dropped In on Shanghai Fashion Week, Where China’s It Girls Come Out to Play

Two seasons ago, Shanghai Fashion Week hosted the likes of Gigi Hadid, hosting a launch event for her Gigi x Tommy line, and this season, the emerging fashion week has earned Prada’s endorsement. Though Prada presented its Resort 2018 show in Milan back in May, that didn’t stop Miuccia Prada’s namesake brand from staging a reprise in Shanghai just two days before the onset of Shanghai Fashion Week Spring 2018. Prada co-signed the restoration of the magnificent Rong Zhai villa, where its Resort 2018 show took place for a second time (with a few new, specially designed looks) on Thursday. It drew the likes of Prada herself, as well as front-row stars like the supermodel Liu Wen—but with the onset of Shanghai Fashion Week, the city’s own street style stars, up-and-coming models, fashion editors, and more are snapping away at the sights of Shanghai and posting them on Instagram.
