China Fashion Week gaining international reputation

China Fashion Week 2013 (autumn/winter) opened in Beijing’s D-Park on Sunday with a show from Italian luxury leather label Gherardini following another one from Chinese independent fashion designer Wang Peiyi.

The week is the biggest fashion event in the country and is becoming more international than ever since its founding in 1997. This season is a good example, attracting Gherardini to make its debut in China. In addition, the young designer Wang is also developing an international name. He is the first Chinese fashion designer to have made his way to Milan Fashion Week. Gabriele Colangelo, a young designer from Milan, will bring his latest collection to Beijing on Monday.

“Compared with Milan, China Fashion Week has a long way to go, but it is on the right track in terms of international scale, design and organization,” Wang said, speaking backstage.

A few miles away at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology (BIFT), young models were also presenting the latest designs from new graduates. The show attracted David Haynes, commercial director of WGSN Asia, one of the most famous agencies for fashion trend forecasting. Read more
