TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan's premier fashion exhibition and annual brand showcase, Taipei IN Style, is off to an energetic start following the opening runway show on Thursday, Nov. 8.

Designer May Hsu is once again representing Taiwan's talent and style, with her brands Hong Chubby and Madam May. The two brands' runway show for 2018 offered a stunning follow-up to their successful opening of Taipei IN Style 2017.

Hong Chubby opened up this year's event delivering an energetic, youthful array of eye-catching ensembles, featuring designs and models brimming with confidence and style. Hsu worked to combine the lively, urban image of hip-hop style, with a sense of comfort and a care-free spirit.
