The centuries-old Nantou Ancient Town in Nanshan District, where history meets modernity after renovation, was transformed into a runway and a glamorous fashion party Monday afternoon as models strutted and sashayed in outfits from the Fall/Winter 2023 Collection of fashion brand HUI, a sub-brand of Shenzhen fashion designer Zhao Huizhou’s Eachway Fashion Group.

The event, a part of the ongoing A/W 2023 Shenzhen Fashion Week, gathered together celebrities, fashion industry figures and influencers including former Olympic champion Xie Xingfang and famous TV host Shen Mengchen.

The runway show’s theme was “Ballad of Mulan,” a folk song believed to have been composed during the Northern Wei dynasty (386–535) depicting the legend of Hua Mulan, a beautiful girl who disguised herself as a soldier to go to war in place of her father.
