In the latest instalment of Global Street Style, i-D gets to know Shanghai's bold new generation of artists, designers and musicians working their way around China's Great Firewall.

With a strong focus on nurturing local sounds and producing new aesthetics, youth in China are determined, VPN-savvy and creatively thriving. Forward-thinking music and fashion collectives like Asian Dope Boys and Genome 6.66 Mbp are bringing an energetic new Chinese crowd into the clubs, whilst young designers and stylists, like Joey and Yin, are flipping the Made In China label on its head by utilising access to factories to create their own clothing lines. With no cultural nostalgia, and a bright future ahead of them, i-D meets the unstoppable creative youthquake of Shanghai.

The narrative around superhero films has historically been one of whiteness and male-dominance. Ryan Coogler's fantastic new Marvel Comics adaption Black Panther changes this, triumphantly. It's a story that celebrates the strength, beauty and power of men and women of African descent, and breathes new life into genre.

The comic book character Black Panther, the first superhero of African descent in mainstream American comics, was initially conceived in 1966, first appearing in comic Fantastic Four #52. Real name T'challa, the Black Panther is the king of Wakanda – a fictional East African Nation powered the precious element vibranium.

Over half a century after the comic book was first printed, Marvel have brought this futuristic African utopia to the big screen, with starring roles from Lupita Nyong'o, Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Daniel Kaluuya and Letitia Wright, to name a few.

From bringing modern black superheroes to the Marvel universe and cinemas across the globe, to taking in the entire African diaspora in such a meaningful and impactful way, and presenting female characters as powerful as their male counterparts, Coogler's Black Panther is truly a moment in time. The reviews are unanimous: this film changes the game. In case you need a little more convincing, we went down to its London premiere and met the stars and director, to find out why the film means so much to them. Wakanda forever!

Ajak Deng is the kickboxing mega model who’s experienced more than most will in an entire lifetime -- and she's only in her second decade. Fleeing the second civil war in Sudan with her family, Ajak lived in a refugee camp in Kenya -- where she built her own home -- before starting a new life in Australia, and then a very successful modelling career that took her further afield.

Ajak initially had a very different career in mind, but -- thankfully for the fashion industry -- she was persuaded to give the catwalk a shot. It turned out this statuesque beauty was a natural and, in 2011, she claimed her place on the cover of i-D. But it wasn't all plain sailing. After experiencing racist attitudes in the industry, Ajak was ready to quit modelling for good -- until her fans persuaded her to stay, and she realised that she wasn’t just a model, she was a role-model.

You’re going to want to get more familiar with Ajak, so start with these 10 very important things to know about this down to earth star who’s set for great heights in the industry, kicking prejudice to the sidelines as she goes.

Ahead of the release of her massively discussed second album, i-D took Lorde to the Art Gallery of New South Wales for a brief respite from the media whirlwind surrounding her. In this quiet corner of the city the star reflected on the pressure and process the making of such an anticipated record, her unwavering connection to New Zealand and why no one really knows her at all.

What a year it’s been. Some highs, some lows (a lot), sure, but let’s not forget 2017 has been a landmark year for activism. From entertainment, to fashion, to politics, in the face of opposition, adversity and hatred, a generation of silence-breakers have taken a stand and made their voices heard.

So, to round off the year with positive messages, we asked a few of our favourite artists, designers, models, musicians, actors and activists to talk us through their personal highlights of 2017, and give us their advice to keep the momentum going well into 2018.

Play sing-a-long with Canadian-born Tommy Genesis, who explores the complexities of being female, being young and above all, being human in ‘A Free Freestyle for Anyone to Perform’. Shot on a warm, dusky LA evening, follow Tommy on a maroon-hued hike and into a neon-lit garage for a spiritual a-capella awakening. Without a beat, the words become hypnotic prayer, and form an eerily powerful mantra in an age of toxic masculinity being splashed all over the nightly news.

Originally printed in i-D’s Sounding Off Issue, Tommy Genesis invites you to perform your own version, and find truth in the words no matter who you are. Grab a hold of the lyrics and speak your heart into the night; someone is always listening.

Join designer Rio Uribe and his anarchic tribe of street-cast fashion rebels for Gypsy Sport's latest show, staged this season in Paris' Place de la République. Hailing from New York's Harlem city streets, the former CFDA prize winner showed a typically transgressive collection on the pavement where Parisians gathered after the Charlie Hebdo and November 2015 terror attacks. With a setting steeped in history, solidarity and vibrant youth culture, Gypsy Sport's spring/summer 18 collection celebrates radical diversity, inclusivity and above all, freedom – what better backdrop than in the heart of the City of Love?

Rio Uribe likes to think outside the fashion box. With his brand Gypsy Sport, founded in 2012, Rio anchors fashion in the streets and celebrates radical diversity, inclusivity and freedom. In September, he staged his transgressive spring/summer 18 collection onto the pavement of Paris' Place de la République, right under the eye of its sacred statue, where Parisians gathered after the Charlie Hebdo attack and November 2015 attacks, and where hundreds of French activists protested against the ultra-liberal presidential program for months during Nuit Debout. The stage felt anarchic and natural: a pro-Morsi demonstration, tango dancers, teenagers gathering for a long night out, vagabonds of all types and a large crowd of fashion fans. Rio’s street-cast crew of models walked the busy square with pride, in a spirit of communion and freedom. i-D followed Rio backstage during his Parisian adventure, from the casting to the final show celebrated the irreverent energy of Paris youth culture.

Through Rina Sawayama's alternative take on East Asian beauty standards and philosophical, "glittery cute" R&B sound, the Niigata-born, London-bred musician and model has carved a path of her own with few precedents to look up to. Celebrating her unique take on Eastern-meets-Western culture, in this latest instalment of i-D Meets we put Rina's childhood gaming skills to the test through a round of Final Fantasy and Dance Dance Revolution – and talk about her experiences as an East Asian woman in the entertainment industry and her admirable ambitions for the future.
