FGI-LA Spring 2008 Runway Panel Discussion

Although I live in Shanghai, I was recently in Los Angeles to visit several clients. While in town I managed to fight off my jetlag while attending the FGI-LA Spring 2008 Panel Discussion.

My extra effort paid off and I was able to enjoy a lively and informative discussion on the state of fashion in LA from their panelists who included Henri Meyers- EM Productions, Cristina Ehrlich- Stylist and Designer of Miss Davenport, Juan Carlos… Continue

Evisu Cube Gallery

So the event was really great. Evisu took over an entire section of the Xin Tian Di shopping center with their installation. I was really impressed with the other artists work and guess many other people were as well because 8 of the pieces sold. The proceeds from the sales were donated to Care for Children a charity which works to find Chinese orphans a family to call their own.

Sorry to say but I do not have pictures of the event yet. If you want to see you check out this… Continue

Evisu Cube Gallery 10/9/07 Shanghai

Posted on October 25, 2007 at 10:12am 0 Comments

It has been awhile since I was working Hollywood getting my hands dirty doing fun art projects... So I was thrilled to be invited to do an art piece for the Evisu Cube project. Each artist is given a small 3-D space and some Evisu fabric to make an art project with. The show will be open November 9th with an auction of the artwork in order to benefit a Chinese charity. Similar events were done in Hong Kong and London and hope the Shanghai event goes off just as well.

I will post some… Continue

I have changed the printers group today to a new group. Unfortunately, I had to remove your previous listing telling members of the group about your company. You had written "Just want to introduce myself to anyone that joins this group. I do sourcing in China and Egypt for cotton t shirts. I also know many screen printers in Los Angeles." Please join the new group and add back your listing. The printing fashion group. Sorry for the inconvenience.
