Los Angeles Times Daily Crossword Puzzle
Edited by Rich Norris and Joyce Nichols Lewis

On Sept. 26, the Michigan
Union's Anderson Room will
look more like a high-end
nightclub
than a stately To See The
conference Invisible
room. It
will host an Thursday,
interactive Friday, and
fashion show Saturday
featuring
designs by Xu Union
Rui, an award- Free
winning
professor and
fashion designer from China.
The show is one portion of a
three-part fashion exhibition
hosted by the University's
Confucius Institute.
Professor Joseph Lam,
director of the Confucius
Institute, explained how this
chic event came to be offered at
the University.
Lam pointed out that the
Confucius Institute has
offered many events, like
lectures, exhibitions, painting,
calligraphy and theater, but has
yet to do anything related to
fashion.
"I had the idea of doing a
fashion show, and that year
we were visiting The Central
Academy of Fine Arts in
Beijing," Lam said. "I met with
the director of The Academy,
and I told him I wanted to do
a fashion show from China,
and I didn't want to do just
the traditional Chinese pieces
because we have seen enough of
that. I wanted something new."

"She is making technologically

experiencing this exhibition,
University students will expand
their world view and utilize their

"The basic thing," Lam said,
"is to make people feel good,
realize how art is powerful and
then in the process learn a little
bit about China."
When people typically think of
China, contemporary art might
not quickly come to mind. Joseph
Lam hopes that this example
of modern Chinese fashion will
change that.
"This is one side of China
that people don't talk about,"
Lam said. "We're talking about
now. Contemporary, creative,
