Bao Bao Wan is the epitome of the new millenium's fairy tale: high society, socialite, artist and business woman, she is a role model for a new generation of well-traveled Asian women now making their mark around the world, a bright rising Chinese star in the sky of international design and creativity:Wan was the youngest designer to collaborate with international ethical diamond brand Forevermark on their Precious Design collection with “Bao”, a fantasy cuff featuring 43 carats of diamonds. For mega-Chinese jewellery retailer Chow Tai Fook, Wan designed the Dragon d’Eau collection, premiered in Paris at the Shining Moments Jewelry Show. She has also signed a Swarovski Enligthened collection longside Patrick Mauboussin, Stephen Webster and Zaha Hadid. Meanwhile, the limited edition of 666 Smart cars she designed for Mercedes-Benz sold out within 8 hours earlier this year, and she has just returned from Cannes, France, where she appeared in the Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show curated by Carine Roitfeld.
Growing up within the walls of Zhongnanhai, China’s presidential palace, lonely Wan was deeply touched by the beauty of nature and the subtlety of the finest of Chinese heritage.
