The event was organized by Swiss watch manufacturers Hublot, which have recently opened a new shop in China, in aid of the Manchester United Foundation.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is more used to walking the technical area at the side of a football pitch but swapped the touchline for the catwalk and waved to to photographers at the event.

The 70-year-old was joined on stage by Rio Ferdinand, Javier Hernández, new signing Shinji Kagawa and other members of the squad.

"We are very happy to be in China and to be able to bring such a fantastic fashion and charity event to Shanghai," Fergie told manutd.com.

"The money raised for the 'United for UNICEF' partnership is invaluable in protecting the lives of young people across the world, and we are pleased to be able to harness the power of our partnership with Hublot to help that cause."
