Bund historic building becomes fashion center

ONE of the oldest buildings on the Bund has been renovated into a fashion and boutique center and held a wine appreciation party this week, officials said today.

The Bund 22, originally built in 1906 for foreign banking institution Swire Pacific, has been renovated and reopened to include tailored brands, “arty cultures” and restaurants. A grand opening of many stores in the building will be held late this month.

The wine party hosted by world class sommelier Andy Chen introduced visitors to tasting wines and basic drinking etiquette.

Designers from a high-end, custom-made gowns brand, Guo Pei, made design drafts for some of the visitors.

More fashion and cultural activities will be held in the historic building next month after the grand opening, an official with the Bund 22 said today.

The historic building was originally designed by Davies and Thomas, Civil Engineers and was originally constructed by Swire Pacific Limited of England. It is the only century-old red-brick building on the Bund.
