UAL Shanghai Christmas Dinner 2015

More than 65 alumni attended the 4th annual UAL Shanghai Alumni Association Christmas Dinner on December 12, 2015 in Shanghai’s Former French Concession district.

The biggest ever Christmas dinner organized by the Association was held for the second year running at Shanghai Slim’s, one of the best-rated steak restaurants in the city and housed in a beautiful concession-era colonial villa. A full traditional dinner of turkey, potatoes and stuffing was served alongside Christmas crackers, giving the alumni a warm feeling of London at Christmas time.


Throughout the dinner there were four presentations from successful alumni about their work and careers. Catherine Shen talked about her career in business development for some of Europe’s leading luxury brands while fellow LCF alumnus Alexandra Sykorova discussed how she picks fashion investment opportunities for L Capital Asia – LVMH. Meanwhile Lynn Chen (CSM) spoke of the arts education company he founded, ROSSO Fashion & Arts Education, and Huang Lv (LCC) presented her concept boutique OOAK.
