Dolce & Gabbana launches haute couture collection designed for China. Sun Yuanqing reports.

European luxury houses have been staging their couture shows in China after debuting them in Paris for some time now. But no one has ever created a special haute couture collection for the Chinese market, until last week, when Italian designer house Dolce & Gabbana decided to bring a special event to Hong Kong.

For the first time, the brand's haute couture line made its China debut in Hong Kong at The Peninsula on Dec 2.

Under the theme "Italian Tribute to Oriental Culture", the Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria collections offered 104 looks for men and women in total, all presented by Chinese models.

At the show, the brand's signature Sicilian style was re-created with Asian influences like intricate embroidery and hand-painted flowers.

Furs, sequined fabrics and extravagant headpieces added a touch of festive glamor.
