Focused on the early 20th century, Shanghai Glamour delves into the very unique fashion of Shanghai women and analyzes how it created a picture seduction and mystery for the city.

Beyond the glamour, the changing styles of female clothing and the controversial images of modern women also manifested the social and political anxieties in the transitional period that ushered in new gender roles.”
The exhibit features twelve outfits from the 1910s-1940s from the China National Silk Museum in Hangzhou and various accessories, posters, lifestyle magazines, and period images. Shanghai Glamour examines how women used fashion to create their identity.
