CBCF's mission is to improve the lives of women and children through sustainable economic growth; it aims to foster international understanding through cultural and academic exchanges by providing grants to empower Chinese women to achieve equality, autonomy and to fulfill their potential.  Accordingly, the Gala will benefit CBCF's Scholarship Fund at the Fashion Institute of Technology ('FIT') to afford talented creatives from China the opportunity to study at FIT in NYC.  The scholarship is further supported by
Fashion 4 Development's ('F4D') internship program which will place graduates with global brands and give them access to angel investments to start their own businesses.


A notable Chinese American entrepreneur who is a media icon and a household name in China, Yue-Sai Kan produced and hosted two hit television series that introduced the East to American audiences and the world to China.  Moreover, she was a pioneer in beauty, founding the first cosmetic brand -- Yue Sai -- in China.  Kan also was the first celebrity of Chinese descent to serve as UNICEF?s Global 'Say Yes' Ambassador and has developed numerous cultural exchange initiatives between China and the United States. Through CBCF, she is committed to bringing positive change to the lives of women and children through the power of 'beauty'  which in the Chinese language denotes generosity, honesty, dignity and uplifting of the human spirit.




Born in China, raised in Hong Kong and designing in New York, Tam effortlessly blends her cultural roots with a modern design vocabulary recognized for its artistry, form and attention to detail.  Known for innovation and exotic imagery, Tam's collections explore the creativity and positive energy that comes from bridging cultures and incorporating a contemporary aspect to traditional forms  which will be evident in her upcoming Spring 2014 collection to be shown at Lincoln Center on September 8 during NY Fashion Week.  A pioneer and the first successful Chinese designer in the US, Tam is honored for her dedication to supporting women's empowerment and providing opportunities to emerging talent from China.  Tam's iconic collections featuring her unique East-meets-West perspective are in the permanent archives of the Andy Warhol Museum, the Museum of FIT, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Royal Ontario Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.  




China's preeminent haute couture designer Guo Pei's exquisite creations are showcased for the first time in the US.  Guo's debut presentation features acclaimed pieces from her 'Legend of the Dragon' collection, including a gown inspired by stained glass domes of European churches and a gown adorned with several thousand ?Gong Hua?, silk flowers made exclusively for the royal palace and were rescued from the storage room of a deserted factory and carefully restored with steam -- the entire process took nearly 50,000 hours.  Guo's  designs are known for merging modern influences with classic Chinese elements, from embroidery to traditional patterns; her ability to highlight and preserve the origins of Chinese fashion, with contemporary and artistic influences transcends geography and has secured her the distinct honor of being awarded the commission for the ceremonial dresses featured during the 2008 Beijing Olympics.  Guo?s sculptural creations made at her magnificent Rose Studio, have drawn admirers around the world such as big screen actress Zhang Ziyi, Fan Bing Bing and Lady Gaga
