BEIJING — Talk about taking fashion to new heights. On Friday, Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi held a monumental fashion show — atop the Great Wall of China, no less.
The 500 guests — including Zhang Ziyi, Kate Bosworth, Thandie Newton, Amanda Hearst and Tinsley Mortimer — climbed the steep steps to witness the extravagant display said to have cost upward of $10 million.
“It’s a big sign that China is the place where things are happening today,” said Bernard Arnault, chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
As for the fashion, it was an expanded version of Fendi’s spring collection recently shown in Milan, featuring about two-thirds new styles. The show was followed by an open-air dinner and party at The Village at SanLiTun, a high-tech, new shopping complex in downtown Beijing.
