Ronnie Li was present at the Shanghai event and was witness to lots of fabulous dancing. A fantastic show dance kick started the event with the ever popular Asian celebrity WANG LIN, who partnered with the Amateur Ballroom Champion Charles HE (partnered with Sara Shan).


Most famous for acting and appearing in many TV programmes including reality shows such as Strictly Come Dancing, China, WANG LIN looked magnificent wearing a shaded white and pink CHRISANNE CLOVER Couture.  Designed by our talented Couture Designer Kushy Jutlla, design talks were made remotely and made in our London head office. The dress was shipped to China once for a fitting to check it was to Wang Lin’s expectations, then immediately shipped back to the UK to be crystallized by our talented embellishment team.



‘ The dress was perfect and just what I wanted. So much intricate design detail went into the garment it was a vision to behold. I felt so nervous and anxious opening the Shanghai competition with our showdance dancing in front of so many professional and amazing dancers! But once I had the dress on it gave me so much confidence and really made me feel like a professional dancer amongst all the other amazing dancers performing that day. Thank you so much CHRISANNE CLOVER for making me look and feel like a princess.’

Wang Lin




Wang Lin wore a beautiful shaded White and Sugar Pink Ballroom dress featuring white stretch net over nude lycra adorned with silver bead droppers. Godets were layered in white satin chiffon enriched with layers of feather fringe, over organza underskirts. Embellished in CRYSTALS FROM SWAROVSKI in Crystal AB, Crystal and Crystal White Pearls and finished perfectly with shaded georgette floats floating beautifully from each wrist.


 ‘It was such a pleasure working with Wang Lin on her couture dress which was such a strong design enriched with bead droppers, crystals, shading and feathers, everything a lady dreams of for a Couture gown and was such a beauty when finished’

Kushy Jutlla, Couture designer



LIN BING, Chairman of the Cimen Dance School and well known for being the grand sponsor at prestigious dancing events such as the UK Championships in Bournemouth, The Internationals at the Albert Hall and the Blackpool Dance Festival, also took part in the event. Looking stunning in a Red CHRISANNE CLOVER Ballroom dress Lin Bing danced with the ever-popular Hansen dancing a show dance that only took her 2 days to learn the routine! A fabulous way to break up the competition event with a show stopping show dance.


‘I loved the dress I wore from CHRISANNE CLOVER, the colour was perfect for the occasion and I really felt like a million dollars’
