A PIECE OF PINK VELVET
In A Piece of Pink Velvet, stylist and photographer Dre Romero has amalgamated a series of imaginative portraits of Shanghai’s most iconic underground artists and personalities. Filled with previously published as well as never-before-seen images, this book propels you on a sparkling journey through the years of 2016 to 2021, which here emerges as the most iconoclastic and unforgettable era of a distinctly Shanghai counterculture that once brought together the worlds of nightlife, fashion, music, and art – only to explode them all.
