Over 1’000 guests including buyers, media and politicians, enjoyed the open air show and garden exhibition, which also included the Chinese designers PRONOUNCE, Roderic Wang, Wang Changrong and Octo Cheung. The  four were selected by the curator of the embassy’s garden exhibition, Ms Mary Ma, founder of Textile Library, the material design and research centre based in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.
