A fashion show is celebrating the traditional dress of Mongolians at the Shanghai University. More than twenty Mongolian models paraded down the catwalk in their costumes fusing ethnic flavors and a modern twist.

Backed by live traditional Mongolian folk tunes, models sashayed in their traditional attire.

The designs salute Mongolian culture, with handmade embroidery and golden and silver thread-woven patterns featuring prominently in the accessories. Modern elements drawn from other cultures were also seen in the show.
