Beijing Event Attracts City’s Fashion And Media Elite
This weekend, New York designer Phillip Lim was in Beijing for the mainland China launch of his “4 x 3.1” multimedia fashion project for the high-end Hong Kong department store Lane Crawford. Earlier this month, Lim debuted the project in Hong Kong. Previously detailed in Jing Daily’s article on “Chinese-American Designers Looking East,” 4 x 3.1 features Lim’s newest collection as well as four short films created by four emerging artists—Victoria Tang in Hong Kong, Rain Li in Beijing, Elle Muliarchyk in New York, and Yi Zhou in Paris—each envisioning a personal story about the Phillip Lim girl.
Taking place at Lane Crawford at Seasons Place and the Dongbianmen Watchtower, the Beijing debut of 4 x 3.1 attracted the Chinese capital’s media and fashion elite, including our friend Nels Frye of Stylites in Beijing, who was on hand to take part in the festivities.
