Yue-Sai Kan Requests that You Save the Date of May 7

Three years ago, I launched China Fashion Night to promote Chinese design talent. We staged Guo Pei's debut haute couture show in New York City and really catapulted her to international fashion consciousness. I'm proud to be able to play a small role in Guo Pei's success and feel obliged to do more.

On May 7th, I'm hosting the 2nd China Fashion Night in partnership with China Institute at the Tribeca Three Sixty in New York City. We are thrilled to be honoring Chinese fashion photographer Chen Man and legendary model Carmen Dell’Orefice. The centerpiece of the Gala is a full length haute couture fashion show by Chinese fashion designer Lan Yu. Funds raised at the Gala will be used to support the China Beauty Charity Fund Scholarship at the Fashion Institute of Technology as well as China Institute’s new Fashion Initiative.

Please save the date of May 7 for us. You can also reserve tables and tickets at early-bird prices via my office 212.317.0530 or cbcfnyc@friendsofchinabeauty.org or Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/china-fashion-gala-2017-tickets-32448261624
