In the period 2010-2011, coinciding with the World Expo in Shanghai, Lu Schaper was invited by the famous Shanghai Story High-end Fashion chain to work with them as a freelance artist. She created about a dozen of different scarves, based on silk or cashmere. These scarves became bestsellers in the Shanghai Story shops. This picture shows a model demonstrating a silk scarf, "Fall in love with Shanghai", created by Lu Schaper.
This picture is a promotion photograph by the company for one of her silk scarves, "Tour of expo", inspired by the various participating countries.
This picture was taken by the artist - a self portrait, wearing one of her cashmere scarves.
