Scottsdale Fashion Week 2009
Welcomes Zhao Bandi
Zhao Bandi, one of the most famous and influential artists in China, will premiere his first ever U.S. panda fashion show on the Waterfront Main Runway on November 6.
Bandi uses pandas, the veritable symbol of China, to communicate a distinctive perspective of his country through incredibly creative photography, video, and performance art. Bandi’s pandas are known for portraying Chinese society in a most lively manner.
Bandi’s panda fashion show is unprecedented and one of the most fantastic works of Chinese contemporary art. No other artist has brought the whole of Chinese society, including all classes and stereotypes, to the catwalk. Audiences may feel shocked or even uncomfortable to find themselves among the characters played by Bandi’s models. Prostitutes, concubines, and corrupt officials appear on the runway to entertain and encourage the audience to ponder today’s society.
