This week in "Events We're Not Invited To But We'll Show Up Anyway", the biannual Shanghai Fashion Week is back at Xintiandi
from tonight until next Wednesday, October 21. We go almost every time, mostly for the people watching (shout out to Wang Lili
) and free booze. Here's the catch -- they don't sell tickets. The only way to score one is to get an invite from one of the PRs, or find a friendly uncle outside of the venue. Most of the fashion is pretty meh, but the event has definitely been improving over the years.
