In partnership with the China Institute and China Beauty Charity Fund, the Gala’s 350+ fashionable guests networked over hors d’oervers and cocktails, dinned on a elegant Gala dinner, and were treated to a vibrant auction and awards ceremony recognizing photographer Chen Man and fashion icon Carmen Dell’Orefice.
