Shanghai Tang was brought to life by Hong Kong entrepreneur Sir David Tang’s vision, who sought to create the first Chinese lifestyle luxury brand in the world. By interweaving a culture spanning millennia with the dynamism of the turn of the millennium, the brand has married elegance and charm of Shanghai’s fashion and glam from the 1930s with a modern and ground-breaking style, in a process of radically transforming the tenets of tradition.

The brand audaciously embraces the concept of “made in China” going its own way, offering a contemporary Chinese style bereft of stereotypes and overblown ethnic undertones, incorporating the concept of “Nostalgic Chic” into “Modern Chinese Chic”. Shanghai Tang succeeded in affirming worldwide, becoming advocate of an entirely Chinese taste and lifestyle, thus fascinating a various and international audience.

We are now inviting dynamic, enthusiastic and high calibre individuals to join us in Hong Kong.
