This post is a live post in regards to the new Xintiandi Style shopping Mall that opened in of all places Xintiandi, Shanghai. Yesterday when I was in Xintiandi I noticed that there was a runway two blocks long from one end of Xintiandi to the other. Below is a preview of the runway set up yesterday:
After walking the runway, I decided to check out the mall… It looks fancy, sharp and classy. I am sure it is expensive but the major challenge in Shanghai these days are there are many malls opening this fall alone. The Xintiandi Style mall appeared to be 80% full with tenants but there were only a few people wondering throughout with most of the people not carrying bags from recent purchases.
Today I was back in Xintiandi for lunch and noticed further developments with the stage and decided it would be best to ask a staff member when the show would begin. I was advised the show would begin at 2:00pm and it now was 1:40pm, so I decided to stick around to catch the action. One problem is I had no camera with me, so the photos you are about to see are from my iPhone 3.
The show was long and after 20 minutes I decided it would be best to get back to work and share the action with you.
Always the best from Xintiandi in Shanghai to you…
