Rediscovering China 2011-04-23 The D-park in Beijing

04-23-2011 07:17 BJT


Beijing Zhengdong Electronic Power Group Factory was an old factory, one of the important projects from China's 1st Five Year Plan, supported by former Eastern Germany. The remaining original sections of the facility tell the history of Beijing's industrial era, even though the development of the city ended its role as a factory.

After 9 months of hard work, the China Fashion Association and Beijing Zhengdong Electric Power Group revived the historical structure. The building, renamed D-PARK, houses 5 famous designers, 30 young designers, several modeling agencies, and exhibition companies. A fashion park combining design, exhibition, and product development was also built. D-PARK represents hope for the future of Beijing's creative industries. In addition, D-PARK has established a public service platform providing information, training, and meeting rooms in order to create a better environment for fashion elites.
