Wang Peiyi, the first mainland designer to hold a runway show at Milan Fashion week, told CCTV in a recent interview that in order for Chinese designers to have a growing role in the international fashion scene, the entire fashion industry needs to get involved. “We need to make a voice altogether on the global stage,” he says.
With designs that have been worn by stars such as Gong Li and Fan Bingbing, Wang has already established himself as a prominent designer in China. He hopes that his presentation in Milan will help gain global visibility not only for him, but for the Chinese design scene as a whole. Watch the video embedded above for the full interview.
