Chengdu exhibition

 

Discover the Chengdu Fashion Federation’s exhibition at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann


Chengdu: “happiest city in China”, has for many years been reflecting on the major challenges of our generation: environment, creation, economy, development, etc. And fashion is probably one of the areas where the city excels at these issues. With the International Fashion Federation of Chengdu, the concept of sustainable, socially responsible, innovative and efficient fashion continues to evolve. With the primary objective of developing and innovating in this market, IFCM is also taking the lead in many cities to stand out and join international fashion trends. The Galeries Lafayette, symbol of fashion and the art of living in France and internationally, have for many years forged a special relationship with China. It is therefore natural that the Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann store and the International Fashion Federation of Chengdu have come together to offer an innovative and creative journey that fits perfectly into the large-scale Go For Good movement.
