Here in China, we are still have all the feels of fashion week, from Shanghai all the way to Guangzhou. Most of 2017's designers were Chinese, French, Russian, and American. Lucky for them their designs had the opportunity to grace the stage; however, showcasing at a fashion week is a lofty dream for many designers because it almost solidifies that he or she has "made it" in the fashion world. Moreover, the fashion industry is the same globally- highly political; which could mean a considerable amount of money, connections, and time to get featured at a major fashion week showcase.
But a group of creative collectives- directors, producers, and stylists- decided to combat this issue by creating Shanghai Black Fashion Week (SBFW).
Following this celebration of diversity within the fashion industry, WHICH WE LOVE, we spoke to some of the designers to find out more about them and their designs.
