The movie is based on the novel “Rose’s story” by Yishu. “For many women today, fashion is not just an option

Sophia Nubes – Italy
Sophia Nubes presented “Sun Collection”, a capsule constructed around a yellow
palette. With creativity and unmistakable style, the Sophia Nubes brand is setting out an essential collection, where strong evolutionary tendencies merge with innovation and fabric research. A decisive feature is attention to fit and detail of every single item. The collection is inspired by a new sober feel. Longer shapes; outerwear with a continued focus on the waist; daywear that’s all about layering, and eveningwear that sees lengths fade into long slits, revealing the legs with every step, and skimming the knees with soft, decidedly sensual shapes.
Mehmet Korkmaz – Turkey
Mehmet Korkmaz exhibited his “ready couture” designs, bearing the nobility of white and the simplicity of patterns. Mr. Korkmaz preferred to create his own trends rather than reflecting the trends on his creations.
Elegant, soft, fussy: Resort 20 season: The designs displaying the highest level of delicate craftsmanship as in every collection of Mehmet Korkmaz, reflected the cozy, calm, peaceful spirit in a world of his own, in the collections of Resort 20 season, as well. Dresses, jumpsuits and A-line skirts, which are designed using special patterns, are regarded as some of the favorite displays of the collection. As for the details; the feathers, sequins, feminine splendor spreading in waves and the glittering crystal gemstones set light into the souls.
