The inspiration for TAORAY WANG’s 2018 Spring Summer Collection came from the masterpieces of two Baroque musicians, Purcell and Handel presented at the Shanghai Symphony Hall. The exquisite music, performed by the Shanghai Camerata, sophisticated, stylish, baroque musicians, recalled palaces and opera houses from King William III to George II. The performance was hailed as setting a new chapter for Shanghai on the world stage.
Its’ harmony between west and east as well as the fusion of classic and modern art are the triggers to Wang Tao’s imagination. With the scenery changing from modern Shanghai to the royal palace in London, she merges the exquisite Baroque costume into her contemporary designs.
