Through dancing, the bias-cut gowns laid out in the drawers were brought to life using fluid and sensual choreography.

The movements were effortless, yet precise, and displayed the combination of silk and wool in the clothing line.

There was a transparent screen between the stage and the audience. The images of the dancers were projected on the screen and the images were duplicated so it looked like more women were on stage.

"What we do here in Beijing is to introduce the ready-to-wear designed by Nadege Vanhee-Cybulski. We want to show it in a different way. When we create ready-to-wear, we not only think of beauty, but also comfort and movement. Clothes are made for breathing and living. So dance is an option for us," Bali Barret, Women's Universe creative director of Hermes, said a day before the event.

"The event invites guests into a world of movement, gestures and sensuality, which express the Hermes woman's values," she says.
