And Chinese-style panes shaped like an arch were used inside.
At the show, nearly 100 outfits were showcased. The clothes, inspired by traditional Peking Opera costumes are all hand made, and designed by young designers, Wang Xiaoshi, Li Na, Chen Zhong.
The show was hosted by Peking LUX Shine Culture Media, a company which has been working on connecting Peking Opera with other forms of culture, including fashion, since it was set up in 2015.
