Cultural collaboration: Shanghai fashion students in Dunedin

9 November 2012

Shanghai fashion students in Dunedin for cultural collaboration

10 Fashion students from Shanghai, China arrive in Dunedin this evening, fresh from showing with Otago Polytechnic Fashion Design students at the prestigious Shanghai Fashion Week last month.

That show will be recreated somewhat within this year’s special 21st anniversary edition of Otago Polytechnic’s end-of-year fashion show, Collections 12.

While in Dunedin, the students and four staff from the Shanghai University of Engineering Technology (SUES) will also continue a cultural collaboration that began in Shanghai last month: the Dunedin students’ outfits were photographed in some of Shanghai’s most interesting and iconic locales, and now the Shanghai students will have their garments photographed around Dunedin. Images from the sister cities will be compiled into a book, and the project will also form the basis of an academic paper.

“We are really excited to be able to host this delegation, after we were provided with such a fabulous experience in Shanghai,” says Margo Barton. “Our strong relationship with the International Fashion Academy Paris at SUES has led to this exciting cultural exchange and collaboration, which is of immense benefit to all students and staff of the School of Design.”

The on-location photo shoots will take place on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 November.

Collections 12 takes place at 8.30pm on Friday 16 November at 102 Anzac Avenue (Former Display n Sell building). Tickets cost $50; and are available from Otago Polytechnic’s School of Design reception, 4th Floor, H Block, Corner Forth and Union Streets.
