BEIJING — Two years ago, Diane von Furstenberg made a New Year’s resolution that she and her brand would become famous in China. Given the rapt attention Saturday of Chinese fashion press and others at her exhibit opening in Beijing, it seems the iconic designer is on her way to achieving that goal.
Von Furstenberg swept through China last week, capping off events in Hong Kong and a “Red Ball” in Shanghai with the opening of “Diane von Furstenberg: Journey of a Dress” at the The Pace Gallery here. The exhibit, which has toured elsewhere in years past in different variations, now includes new works from several prominent Chinese artists who were commissioned to add to the collection of clothing, portraits and artwork that represent von Furstenberg’s 40-year body of work.
