A CHINESE-themed fashion show was attended by hundreds of people.

The Qipao show, which was held at Solent University on Friday, was organised by Southampton Qipao and Culture Association in partnership with Jiang Qipao, Wisdom Foundation and Solent University.

There was a total of around 250 guests, which included the Mayor of Southampton, Cllr Stephen Barnes Andrew, and the Mayoress, and the Mayor of Eastleigh, Cllr Bruce Tennent, and the Mayoress.

The event was kicked off by a Chinese dragon, and was followed by the Jiang Qipao 2019, which saw over 50 contestants modelling the new Qipao design dresses.

The top three winning Qipao designs by the Art and Fashion Design students at Solent University were also announced, with Aleksandra Krusina winning and being awarded an intership placement at Jiang Qipao in Chengdu, China, which includes flight tickets and accommodation.
