In this post I am in Shanghai to fulfill my duty as patroness of the fashion and textile fair Chic Shanghai 2018 the biggest and most influential in Asia.
To be sure to have a beautiful light we shot the photos at 6 in the morning also because at that time Shanghai seems deserted. Usually the Bund is full of people and it’s unthinkable to do a shoot in that chaos.
The light at dawn is very beautiful, it softens everything, makes photos romantic. I think it’s the perfect time to enhance the colors of the coat in powder with the collar in blackcross mink by Manzoni 24.
At 8 in the morning we had the first meeting at the fair so the time for shooting was really minimal but luckily it was enough to take the photos (we also made a video click here to see it). I don’t know why but strangely I am more motivated to shoot when time is short. Call me mad, stacanovista, workaholic? I don’t know, I just know I really enjoyed myself.
I was lucky enough to be put up at the Fairmont Peace Hotel that is right in front of the Bund where we did the photos.
There was practically no-one, Matteo, me and very few Chinese. It was very beautiful.
In the photos I am wearing: cashmere coat with blackcross mink collar, wool jumper byManzoni 24, trousers from Maison Albino and Manolo Blahnik shoes
