Chinese model Fei Fei Sun has fronted international campaigns for a host of high profile luxury labels such as Louis Vuitton , Chanel Watches, Christian Dior , Prada and Calvin Klein . In 2012, Sun was also selected as the face of Valentino, becoming the first Asian model to hold the coveted position for the storied Italian brand.
Boasting a strong working relationship with photographers such as Steven Meisel , Peter Lindbergh , Daniel Jackson and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, Sun has featured regularly in editorials for international publications such as American Vogue, i-D, Interview and T magazine. In January 2013, Sun landed her first international cover for Vogue Italia, once again becoming the first Asian model to land the prestige and has since featured on covers for Harper’s Bazaar Malaysia and Vogue Nippon.
Sun first emerged onto the international scene in 2008, representing China in Elite Model Look, one of the industry’s most influential modelling contests held by Elite Model Management. A student of fashion design at Suzhou University close to Shanghai, Sun had been awarded first place in the entry level contest and achieved third place in the world. Making her international catwalk debut in September 2009 at London Fashion Week for Mulberry, Sun was hand-selected by Karl Lagerfeld to walk in his Paris-Shanghai fashion show for Chanel in December 2009. The model has since graced the catwalks for designers such as Jil Sander , Dries Van Noten , Céline, Hermès and Dior.
