China pulled out all the stops for the International Fashion Week held in Beijing last week. I don't know what to think of the umbrella dress above by a designer called Liu Lili - but it sure has a bit of edge to it - I can definitely see it worn in the streets of Harajuku. There was also a leather design competition held during fashion week, and China churned out some pretty amazing pieces there too. More pics below.
Another leather design entry.
