Wu Yong Gets Chambre Nod
May 14th, 2008 @ 00:07 AM - Paris
Wu Yong, the Chinese couturier who staged a recent critically acclaimed show in Paris, has been invited onto the official Chambre Syndicale calendar for the coming haute couture season in July.
The appointment marks the first time a Chinese couturier has received such recognition from the Chambre Syndicale, French fashion’s governing body, and underlines the growing skill of designers from China.
Wu Yong, or to use her full name, Ma Ke Wuyong, is also a featured designer in the Victoria & Albert’s upcoming show “China Design Now,” which opens this week in London and covers the creative energy of the country and how “consumerism and urban culture have combined to produce astonishing fashion and lifestyles,” to quote the museum.
To coincide with China Design Now, the Raphael Gallery of the V&A will this Friday project a film of the designer’s last fashion show in Paris. The screening will be part of a section entitled “Fashion in Motion: China Fashion Now," a series of events highlighting China's vibrant youth and popular culture with live bands and live VJs from Beijing, screenings of short films and animations.
Wu Yong is arguably the most acclaimed fashion designer to have emerged from modern China. A graduate of the Suzhou Institute of Silk Textile Technology, she set up her own label Exception de Mixmind in 1996.
The Chambre’s main board also announced that it would continue the status of “invited members” for the following couturiers - Adam Jones, Alexis Mabille, Boudicca, Cathy Pill, Christophe Josse, Felipe Oliveira Baptista, Gustavo Lins, Jean-Paul Knott, Josep Font, Lefranc.Ferrant, Marc Le Bihan, Stéphane Rolland, Richard René et Udo Edling.
All of them plan to stage shows or presentations during the upcoming couture season in the first week of July.
