Italian luxury fashion brand Salvatore Ferragamo has presented its latest collection in the Chinese capital Beijing.
The spring/summer 2012 collection was shown at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art, considered one of the city's most important modern art galleries.
The company, headquartered in Florence, used the Beijing show to highlight its close links with China, where it now has 58 stores.
We wanted to have a presence in Beijing to reaffirm how happy we are with the results we have had in China, and the market continues to grow.”
said Leonardo Ferragamo, son of the company's founder Salvatore.
