For many fashion-conscious women in the country, China-inspired fashion is always one of the go-to choices for special occasions, but can it fit in an everyday wardrobe?

Shanghai Tang, a Hong Kong-based brand, is trying to provide the answer, and recently held a preview of its 2016 autumn/winter collection in Beijing, the first by its new creative director Raffaele Borriello.

Borriello's collection was inspired by the Mongolian nomadic mood, the area's colors and textiles.

While Shanghai Tang is best known for its elaborate qipao (cheongsam), Borriello reinterpreted the garment using new materials and more body-conscious cutting.

His collection also includes a versatile daywear line that highlights Mongolian embroidery and prints.
