Insider’s Guide to Shanghai

Shanghai is not a place that could ever be described as sleepy but even by its frenetic standards, October kicks off a particular busy season in the Chinese city.
Shanghai Fashion Week starts today. Coinciding with that, Prada is staging multiple events across several days including a repeat of its cruise 2018 show in a historic Shanghai mansion. Meanwhile, next month Shanghai will welcome the spectacle that is the Victoria’s Secret show to China for the first time. That flurry of activity is on top of the megamall projects being unveiled in the city, from Plaza 66’s reopening with Alicia Keys to HKRI Taikoo Hui later this year.
Below, a round-up of the best spots to check out during all the goings-on in town.
