It seems the ripple effect of Donald Trump’s trade war with China is now being felt at the upcoming New York Fashion Week, which starts on September 6.
Chinese designer Xiaojuan Yang, founder of independent label I Love Pretty, and her team have been denied visas to travel to the United States next month. According to various reports, Yang applied for a visa at the American Consulate in Guangzhou, China, but the application was turned down and no specific reason was given for the denial.
According to Forbes, 17 per cent fewer business and tourists visas issued to Chinese nationals in the first 5 months of this year, compared to the same period in 2018.
This comes as the number of Chinese travellers to the US last year dropped for the first time since 2003, amid tensions between the White House and Beijing.
