La Perla Debuts Spring 2018 Show in Macau

MACAU — Chinese megastar actors Fan Bingbing and Hu Bing arrived at The Venetian casino on Thursday evening for an unusual night that saw the city, known most for its baccarat, roulette and poker tables, host the global debut of the La Perla spring 2018 show.
Usually overlooked in favor of Hong Kong or Shanghai, the former Portuguese colony upped its fashion credentials with the debut of the rock ‘n’ roll-inspired collection, displayed in the main lobby of casino which had been blocked off to passerbys. The 200-or-so guestlist included model You Tianyi, actress Chen Shu, and rapper Brant.B, who dined at tables running alongside the runway where models such as Natasha Poly sporting bedazzled eyes and slicked-back high ponytails marched to electric guitar riffs.
The show marked the start of Sands Macao Fashion Week running Oct. 19 to 24, the city’s first such event. Designed to jump-start spending at the two Las Vegas Sands-owned properties — The Venetian and The Parisian Macao — the week also scheduled special showcases from Seven For All Mankind, EQ:IQ, Evisu, Karen Millen, Max & Co. and more.
