SHANGHAI — By simultaneously providing a platform for up-and-coming designers, as well as international brands looking to access China’s massive consumer market and a burgeoning local fashion retail business, Shanghai Fashion Week’s spring 2018 edition, which ran Oct. 11 to 18, consolidated the event’s place at the center of the country’s fashion sphere.
Since launching its own trade show platform Mode Shanghai in 2014, Shanghai Fashion Week has reported a fourfold increase in registered buyers, and organizers have since partnered with six other trade shows and showrooms. At this edition, B2B show space totaled more than 320,000 square feet and featured over 1,200 brands from China, Asia and beyond.

In a custom Dior dress fit for a supermodel, @karliekloss married her longtime love, @joshuakushner, in upstate New York yesterday evening. No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
