Gucci Clothing - Made for China! You're probably thinking shouldn't that be Made in China. In truth it's probably both... Gucci creative director Frida Giannini made a visit to a children’s eye hospital during her first visit to Mainland China on Thursday. Giannini is in China along with chief executive Patrizio Di Marco to celebrate the opening of the brand’s new flagship store in the heart of Shanghai. The company now has 28 stores in Mainland China, a number Di Marco said he’s certain will grow in the coming years. Gucci has considerable optimism about the Chinese market, seen as a bright spot amid the world economic downturn. Giannini said she found Beijing surprising and energizing, and is certain this won’t be her last visit. The dinner was hosted by Vogue China at Daniel Boulud’s Maison Boulud restaurant, set in the newly renovated Legation Quarter. Among the guests were actress Zhang Ziyi, and members of the pop band Super VC. Several in attendance noted the somber mood in Beijing on Thursday, the 20th anniversary of the bloody crackdown of the Tiananmen Square democracy movement. A reminder perhaps of the hidden reality that still prevades mainland China.
