More Chinese Designers Going International
Taking place during Paris Fashion Week for the third year running, last night the China In Paris showroom 2012 launched at Salons France-Amériques in the French capital. Jointly organized by the China National Garment Association (CNGA) and Fashion in Life, China in Paris 2012 again looks to give more emerging Chinese designers their time in the spotlight on the French fashion scene.
This year, Beijing-based fashion organization and organizational partner Fashion in Life (法新时尚国际机构) and COPAIS — China’s largest multi-brand operator — joined CGNA to help foster closer ties between the Chinese and French fashion industries and usher in more business deals between French brands and Chinese retailers.
Along with a delegation of fashion industry execs from several Chinese brands, the China in Paris opening ceremony on February 29 included attendees like Didier Grumbach, chairman of the French Haute Couture Association, Sylvie Zawadzki of the Fédération Française de la Couture, and international designer Maxime Simoëns.
