Noir&Blanc at Shanghai Fashion Week 2011

I had the most amazing day yesterday! One week of hard work finally saw its results when Swedish Noir&Blanc showed at Shanghai Fashion Week, followed by a high heel after party at Göte Göta store.

The Noir&Blanc fashion show was fantastic. The designers teamed up with dance club Jazz du Funk and did a pretty exquisite cross over show that opened and closed with a dance sequence called “Black Sun” (see the video at the end of this post for the short closing performance, mind the shaky video, as I was applauding while filming –multi tasking, you know!). The dance worked super well with the actual collection: Ethnic Euphoria, which is about tradition and ethnic symbols, pattern-mania, knitted influences and draped fabrics.

The after party saw Kosta Boda Crystal Catwalk collection, live wei-boing (twittering) from (I did an interpretation stunt: Eng-Chi for one of the interviews), as well as high heel painting by Chinese as well as Swedish artists (see the second video of how Göran Kling is painting his pair). The shoes were then auctioned off and the money went to charity. All in all –a super night spent with some super people. I’m still high of happiness.

After party at Göte Göta store: good times with an awesome group of people!

Looked like a lot of fun. I've wondered what it's like to experience fashion week. Amazing. =o)

HI Jonna,

I'm always amazed by the large number of things you're involved with in China, and that you always navigate all the quirks of life there with a smile and sense of humour. I bet you stay in China for many years to come.



ps: back in your Dating maze entry, with your friend in a LDR with a Chinese girl, I was wondering, does he speak any Chinese, or does she speak English (or European language)?

Mitaosi 什么意思? 我不懂你想说什么。我不是戴着一副高高在上的有色眼镜去审视周围的一切。
