China. Emperors. Communism. Luxury. Fashion. Emperors may not rule China any more, but we had the chance to witness the focus on fashion at the 17th Ningbo International Fashion Fair in October. We spent the week working hand in hand with an international delegation from China, UK, India, Amsterdam, Lithuania, Australia and Hong Kong. The fair focused on the intersection of the UK and Chinese garment production and manufacturing at the bespoke level. Building relationships with the Chinese takes time and patience, but the reward is well worth the wait.
