The Council of Fashion Designers of America and Vogue have teamed up yet again to promote American-based designer. The fashion giants' latest initiative, Americans in China, will help designers foster growth in the Chinese fashion market. It kicks off for the first time ever on June 20th, when the designers behind Proenza Schouler (pictured below), Rag & Bone and Marchesa will attend a cocktail reception hosted by U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke, followed by a dinner in their honor hosted by Angelica Cheung, Vogue China’s editor in chief. On June 21st, the brands will show their Fall 2013 collections in fashion shows at the Dynasty City Wall Relics Park at the Great Wall of China. This initiative follows a couple of other efforts by the CFDA to assist its members in tapping into the Chinese market. Namely, its recent partnership with Shanghaipin.com, the leading and the largest luxury fashion online shopping platform in China, and the launch of its Chinese/American designer exchange program last March.
