CHINESE CHARM: China’s Grace Chen, who is a go-to designer among her country’s elite for her elaborate couture gowns, is launching a first ready-to-wear collection this season in Paris.

The line features daywear and cocktail dresses, the designer said at a trunk show of her couture designs held Thursday at high-end boutique Les Suites, where her couture creations are sold.

Chen, who trained at the Fashion Institute of Technology, is showing both her ready-to-wear and couture at the China in Paris showroom until Oct. 6 in a bid to attract international buyers. “Expanding to the international market is always our goal,” she said.
