Want more proof that Asia’s influence is rising in the fashion world? Check out the front row at Chanel Haute Couture show on July 8.
Yup, that’s K-pop star CL just a few seats away from the fashion queen, Vogue EIC Anna Wintour. Also in the front row is Korean Australian actress Jung Ryeo-won, Taiwanese actress Kwai Lun-Mei and Vogue China editor in chief, Angelica Cheung.
Chanel has always made an effort to reach out to its Asian clientele. Past show guests have included Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi, Chinese Brit Alexis Chung and Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana of Thailand. This time, CL even got a photo op with the designer himself.
