Sticking with China Fashion Week for a bit, the event may still be a far cry from those in Europe, but it continues to improve every year. And it's making a particular focus on Chinese designers. It hopes to launch more and more domestic designs onto international catwalks.
Fashion designer Yang Ziming, who runs his own independent label, was named "best menswear designer" during the 2007 China Fashion Week. The award allowed him to attend New York Fashion Week in February, which he described as a "mission impossible" if he wanted to do that on his own.
Yang Ziming, designer, said,"The event is a great opportunity for young designers like me. I have been going to the China Fashion Week since 2002. My brand Cabbeen and myself as a designer have grown a lot over the past decade. And all of that started from the China Fashion Week."
