Fendi Beijing event postponed to October


Fendi contacted all invited guests to its upcoming 100-look fashion extravaganza on the Great Wall of China in Beijing on May 24, informing them that due to “scheduling conflicts,” the Roman fashion and accessories house will have to postpone the festivities—which were to be broadcasted worldwide—to sometime at the end of October, likely the third week. Fendi, which was well into development for the show and week-long festivities slated to take place leading up to Memorial Day Weekend, having already begun working on journalist visas and sending teams of executives to scout the various locales, will work with the Chinese government to secure a second date, according to a company spokesperson.
In addition to the runway show, guests were to be treated to four days of special access to Beijing’s cultural and historical landmarks, including an exclusive evening with the internationally renowned curator Pearl Lam, director of Contrasts Gallery. Fendi chief executive officer Michael Burke was scheduled to attend the once-in-a-lifetime festivities alongside Karl Lagerfeld, Silvia Venturini Fendi, and LVMH Mo√ęt Hennessy Louis Vuitton chief Bernard Arnault.
But don't despair folks....Who wants Fendi if they can have Celine?! Celine will be hosting its own major party in Beijing on June 18. Look out for further news....
