On display now at the Museum of Chinese in America, Front Row: Chinese American Designers presents stunning looks from some of the world’s best designers. Curated by Mary Ping, this fashion retrospective spans from the ’80s up to the present, and features pieces from heavyweights such as Jason Wu, Alexander Wang, Phillip Lim, Anna Sui, Derek Lam, Humberto Leon and Vera Wang. A variation on the traditional red qipao worn by Chinese brides, Wang’s fiery red wedding gown steals the show, perfectly summing up this exhibit’s blend of cultural heritage and modern fashion. —Ashley Churchill
