BEIJING — A celebration of contemporary American fashion cascaded across Beijing’s Ming Dynasty City Wall on Friday evening, bringing together a mix of three prominent but young U.S. brands in a unique show in the Chinese capital.
The runway show, produced by the Council of Fashion Designers of America/Vogue Fashion Fund Initiative and underwritten by Hong Kong-born fashion industry mogul Silas Chou, brought together the fall collections of three Fashion Fund alumni labels — Proenza Schouler, Rag & Bone and Marchesa — on one runway with a cast of exclusively Chinese models over a dramatic, only-in-Beijing backdrop. The unusual runway show displayed the labels’ diverse looks to several hundred of China’s tastemakers, industry insiders and journalists.
