As Shanghai recovers from its worst COVID-19 outbreak in the first half of the year, the Spring/Summer 2023 Shanghai Fashion Week has resumed offline shows. Running from September 22 to 30, this season's Shanghai Fashion Week will host dozens of new design debuts. Trade shows will also resume offline. Forums on topics including the power of women in the fashion industry and the latest fashion trends will be held in town. Shanghai Fashion Week was first held in 2003 and has since become one of the largest fashion events in Asia. The Autumn/Winter 2022 Shanghai Fashion Week was forced to move entirely online in June due to the city's COVID-19 restrictions.
