This Weekend: theINSIDER Luxury Apparel Market For Your Summer Wardrobe

Jul 8, 2016 | 15:57 Fri
Here's another one for the fashionistas, this one to shop at -- theINSIDER is one of Shanghai's nicer sales events, returning for its fifth year, featuring luxury apparel brands and up-and-coming designers from China and abroad. The event is put on by the cool people behind, an online platform that connects brands to taste-makers -- an important connection to make, that.

Last year, theINSIDER saw over 2,000 people attend, and this year, organizers are expecting a lot more with over 25 brands and retailers presenting their wares. The event goes from 1pm to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday at Art+Space on the Cool Docks. Expect to meet a lot of trendy, iPhone 6S snapping, blogger types at this one.

"This year is much more about healthy, active living," says Kim Leitzes, founder of, referring to the inclusion of workout clothing brand Maia Active, activity tracking wear-ables from Fitbit, and GuavaPass, which will be holding fitness classes throughout each day.

Other brands include Happy Socks, D'AUCHEL, Coterie, REVOLVE,, and many others. Some of the brands will have deep discounts on their collections. F&B will be provided by Liquid Laundry, Madison, Boxing Cat, Scarpetta, and VCLEANSE.

Getting in is free, but they ask that you RSVP at RSVPing also gets you a 80rmb discount if you choose to attend the tropical themed after-party happening at La Maison from 7pm to 11pm. Regular ticket price for that is 380rmb, which includes free-flow food and drinks with coconuts passed around and hula dancers performing.
