After the sold-out success of 2017, Donghua Edinburgh Centre for Creative Industries returns to Edinburgh Fringe with a brand new exhibition and exciting new designs.
The exhibition features Shanghai-style Qipao dresses dating from the 1910s to the 1930s, when Shanghai was known as the ‘Paris of the East’.
The runway features contemporary and futuristic Qipao designs using the latest high-tech materials and techniques, combining tradition with modernity.

On the 13th of November hundreds of digital practitioners and schools across the UK will come together to tackle the skills gap in our industry by inspiring our future talent through BIMA Digital Day.
BIMA’s long running programme matches schools to digital practitioners (whether your background is agency, brand side or higher ed.) for a one-day programme to inform and inspire the students about a future in our industry.
BIMA provides all the assets, does the background work. The ask of you is to be at a school on 13th November.
Thanks to the amazing support from Education Scotland and the DYW’s, BIMA have seen a phenomenal take up from schools in Scotland this year which is a fantastic testimony to the interest in digital and creative futures.
This means more practitioners are needed to sign up and take part.
So clear the decks on 13th November and join many other organisations across the country, to do your bit to bring new and exciting talent into our companies.
