Located on the crossroads of Yanshupu Rd and Neijiang Rd, near the Huangpu River, Shanghai Fashion Center is a newly built shopping hub complete with a leisure area.
The center, which covers an area of 140,000 square meters, provides six types of services. These include a Premium Outlets area for shopping; a Food and Entertainment area for eating and leisure; and a Studio Office area for working.
Among well-known brands with outlets in Premium Outlets are Nike, Adidas, JoJo, Cross, Esprit, Levi's, Gap and Roxy. Stores often run special discount promotions.
As yet there aren't many eateries at the Food and Entertainment area, with only Golden Jaguar restaurant, FamilyMart and Starbucks open for business.
Transport links to Shanghai Fashion Center are not particularly convenient. Driving is recommended, and there is free parking.
Despite these minuses, Shanghai Fashion Center is a good place to enjoy a different view of the Huangpu River. And nearby, along the Bund, a long wooden decking footpath allows shoppers to take a pleasant riverside stroll.
