China's most prominent fashion week hosted its fall/winter edition from April 6 to 13. With the pandemic situation, Shanghai became one of the only cities to host a full physical fashion week in 2021. The theme of the event, “Blooms of Spring,” was chosen to reflect the post-pandemic era. Among the brands that participated in this year fashion week also Leaf Xia, TuYue, and Moodbox, at Shanghai Xintiandi Taiping Lake Park Land location; AnnoMundi, UMAMIISM Oyster, Toile, Sorgenti, and Five Koh at Tank Shanghai art space venue, by Labelhood (China’s first pioneer fashion experience community and brand management incubation platform) location; C'era una Volta at 800SHOW, the location for the Kids fashion week.
The Youtopia collective project by Labelhood hosted shows from newcomers including:
The show of the collection "Gleaming Water" started with two dancers imitating the human reflection in the water, implying the duality of virtuality and reality. The collection was full of folding elements, used to imitate the texture of the waves and the fabrics used large-area printing to imitate the gradual change of water billows and the floating state of objects.
