Shanghai is on a roll on the fashion front of late. Just last week, Dior Homme showcased its FW2014 collection at the city’s Long museum, and now, Burberry has opened its new Shanghai flagship store at Jing An Kerry Centre. The glamorous grand opening show, The Dream of London Show, saw over 1,500 invited global guests including Jamie Campbell Bower, Chen Kun, Vicki Zhao, Guey Lun Mei, Xia Yu, Chen Ran, Dou Xiao, Huo Siyan, Angelababy, Carine Lau, Ke Zheng Dong, and Lin Chilling. Centred around the theme of the golden age of British cinema, the spectacular show featured theatre-like scenes of the luxury brand’s heritage through live performances by George Ezra, Ed Harcourt, and Paloma Faith, as well as a runway presentation led by Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Qin Shu Pei. The show’s finale featured Delevingne flying above the audience with an umbrella in hand a la Mary Poppins, providing a fitting end to an enchanting evening.
