Western Impressions of
the Far East.
In terms of location, Beijing’s Fashion Week blends in seamlessly with its Western counterparts: The city’s D-Park, a former industrial estate, has become the metropolis’ new design district, sprinkled with a healthy amount of galleries, boutiques and curated book stores. “If you removed the street signs, you might easily think that you are in Milan, New York or Berlin,” states German designer Dorothee Schumacher whose sophisticated collection added to last year’s Mercedes-Benz China Fashion Week blend.
Visitors can expect a heady mix of international contenders, national hopefuls and Beijing’s intriguingly experimental fashion college graduates – all of them ready to vie for the audience’s attention with their upcoming Fall/Winter collections from March 24th to April 1st, 2012.
Considering the lasting boom of China’s textile industry, the country’s home-grown talents are definitely the ones to watch!
