The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Chinese Exchange Program Welcomes Uma Wang to New York
Last night the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund welcomed Chinese designer Uma Wang to New York with a fancy cocktail party at the W New York Downtown--which will be Wang's home for the duration of her six week stay. She is in town as a guest of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund’s Chinese Exchange Program, which aims to engage key designers in a cultural exchange including industry events and introductions to key people within the U.S. market. The event was hosted by Vogue’s Meredith Melling Burke along with CFDA’s Steven Kolb and W Hotels Global Fashion Director Jenné Lombardo. We also spotted Peter Som, Jenna Lyons and Opening Ceremony’s Kate Foley (who showed us some of her super cool tattoos). Wang represents the exciting wave of innovative, high-quality designers putting the Chinese fashion industry on the map for all the right reasons.
