TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — With Taipei's biannual fashion week scheduled to kick off next week, stylish editors around the country are eagerly preparing to present their latest trendy creations to the public.

Co-organized by the ministries of culture, education, and economic affairs, the 2021 Taipei Fashion Week AW21 will take place March 10-15 at Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, featuring "sustainability" as its theme. It is being hailed as the world's first physical fashion week to have a live audience amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The event will showcase the best of Taiwan's autumn/winter collections from 50 notable local fashion brands. It will be followed by a spring/summer edition sometime later in the year.

The press conference for the Taipei Fashion Week on Thursday (March 4) saw Vice Culture Minister Lee Lien-chuan (李連權), Foreign Trade Bureau Secretary-general Tai Wan-jung (戴婉蓉), Ministry of Education official Lee Yu-chuan (李毓娟), and veteran actress Chen Shu-fang (陳淑芳) take part. There were also catwalk shows spotlighting the work of 13 major designers.

Lee described the fashion week as a platform for Taiwanese designers to demonstrate their creativity to the global community. He explained that next week's event will highlight elements of "function, sustainability, cross-border collaboration, diversity, and the humanities," reported CNA.
