The second International Fashion Week of Hu Sheguang’s Team of Female Models was held at the Wuhan Culture Expo Center, with six fashion shows in total, from October 8 to 9.
This season, Hu made “Silk Road and Modernity” his theme and used legendary figure Audrey Hepburn as inspiration to create a new image of contemporary women. Hu, like many other designers, has recently been exploring the diversity of female identity in a male-dominated world. In the 4,000-square-meter “Wuhan Living Room”, more than 500 women in Hu Sheguang’s Team of Female Models walked on the runway from all over the world.
With strong colors like purple, gray, yellow, red, white, and black, this collection creates a memorable visual impact and helps models feel confident and invincible. “Fashion is not confined by age,” Hu said, “My collection this time will be inspirational for women of all ages.”
Hu said he also hopes to highlight the qualities of middle-aged and elderly Chinese women in his work. “This team originated from local model teams, square dance troupes and yangko teams, which are unique female forces that already exist in China,” Hu said. “I want to use fashion to give these women an opportunity to light up the next 50 years of their lives. I believe a great dress can inspire a better life.”
In only a few years, Hu has developed his team rapidly. More than 100 bases have been developed around the world. “I’ve spent most of my life working with women, and each inspired me. My clothes are not just personal creations, they are women’s stories,” Hu said. “The team is never about competition, it’s to build a healthy, beautiful and happy community and showcase the beauty of Chinese women.”
