XIAMEN, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Just after the conclusion of the BRICS Xiamen Summit, Xiamen was once again in the limelight when it launched the 2017 International Fashion Week on November 15-19.

Thanks to Xiamen International Fashion Week and Xiamen’s unique ecological and industrial environment, an increasing number of well-known designers from China and the rest of the world, including Ji Wenbo, Zeng Fengfei, Liu Yong, Cai Meiyue, Xu Xinyin, Zheng Qinger, etc., have founded their own studios or companies in this city. Today, more designers believe Xiamen is an ideal place to pursue their fashion careers.
