Known as the “Paris of the East,” Shanghai in the 20s was vibrant, bustling and fiercely glamorous.   Clubs were filled with famed writers, hopeless artists, seductive courtesans and La Femme Fatale movie stars.  Saxophones and trumpets blared as jazz bands roared all night long for the dancing crowds.

This is the daring transformation when East meets West.  Art Deco styling makes its way across the grand oceans, mandarin meets modernity, and Chinese fashions create some very bold statements.  Tai Tais or wives flaunt sexy, silky qipao dresses that reveal a bit more leg and a lot more curves.
