The Lace Review exposes to the Chinese public the technical specificities that make the richness and uniqueness of this essential material in the fields of fashion and lingerie. A true cultural exception, the technique of weaving Leavers lace – which combines elegance, engineering and creativity – has marked the territory’s economic activity and imagination since its invention more than 200 years ago.
This first stage is co-produced by Bang Communications and takes place in the heart of Shanghai at MoCA, the first private museum in China dedicated to the promotion of Chinese or international contemporary art and design. It hosts exhibitions about the great names of Western fashion, design and luxury such as Dior, Chanel, Ferragamo or Marimekko.
