The Event

Fashion is becoming a powerful way of expression for younger generations who move away from big international fashion brands as they develop a fashion identity of their own. Through this talk, we will dialogue with Hung Huang on her insightful thoughts on fashion and design in China, stories behind iLook and Brand New China, as well as her reflections on life.

The Speaker

Hung Huang serves as the CEO of the China Interactive Media Group, which publishes iLook fashion magazine. She is the author of a popular blog and micro-blog, with the latter having more than 9 million followers. The Vassar College alumna has also written a best-selling autobiography, My Abnormal Life as a Publisher, and starred in the independent Chinese film, “Perpetual Motion”, which made its international debut at the 2005 Venice Film Festival. In 2011, TIME magazine selected Ms Hung as one of the world’s most influential people. Her latest business venture, Brand New China, is a multi-brand shop in Beijing that promotes homegrown talent, showcasing everything from apparel to home accessories by more than 100 cutting-edge Chinese designers.
