Yesterday, Vogue China hosted an intimate afternoon tea celebrating the British Fashion Council's London Show Rooms presentation in Hong Kong with local celebrities, socialites, media and retailers. Vogue China Editor-in-Cheif, Angelica Cheung, was kind enough to stop for a quick chat with us; it was clear from our conversation with her that this inimitable taste-making woman firmly supports British fashion and rising young designers in general. This year, she is cooperating with Anna Wintour from American Vogue in a designer-swap where a rising American designer swaps cities with a rising Chinese designer for a month, to get a better idea of one another's markets. Angelica hopes to create a similar initiative for British fashion. As the leading fashion authority in Asia today, Angelica's support is crucial in securing both media and retail success for rising fashion talent in the booming Asian region. Electric sekki has always and will continue to do the same for many years to come!
