When: Thursday Sept 4th

Where: Xintiandi, Shanghai

What: Louis Vuitton "Series 1--That was then, this is now" Opening cocktail Party

Series 1 is now open for the public until September the 26th.

Met by a glamorous red carpet and wall of photographers before seeing one star after the other, all together gave us the impression that this was going to be an interesting night. Vuitton took over an art deco theater in Shanghai where they presented a collection by the name Series 1. Every floor had something different, something unique and exciting to see, unlike the other. It was like you were given a backstage pass to a designer’s creative universe. It allowed you to truly discover the thoughts, hopes and dreams of a designer’s mindset. Each floor and room took us through this journey of memories in an interesting and thrilling way. With an eye on the past, but a grip on the future. Ending with the final stunning collection for A/W 2014/2015 retraces Nicholas Ghesquière’s first collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Even though we weren't able to meet the man himself, Nicholas Ghesquière, we were able to mingle with other guests like former soccer star and fashionista Hidetoshi Nakata, world known photographer Chen Man, superstar Fan BingBing, It girl Chloë Sevigny and Rinko Kikuchi.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Vuitton president for North Asia Michael Shriver who was happy about the evening, as it was a fresh new way of presenting a collection.

Many thanks to Ink Park and the lovely team of Louis Vuitton for putting this all together.

And…. That´s It!
