International Women's Day is the celebration of women from all over the globe, no matter where you're from. But, we'd be lying if we said there wasn't just an extra bit more celebration dedicated to contemporary Chinese women of today, courtesy of Bulgari's Aurora Awards ceremony. Held for the first time in China and hosted at the luxurious Bulgari Hotel Beijing, the prestigious awards ceremony honoured and commended the contributions and innovations of these women in areas of film, architecture, design, sports dance, culture and art. From modern dancer Duan Ni, to Power Station of Art director Gong Yan, to up-and-coming film director Mai Zi, it was a list of highly successful women that have continued to break old barriers and forge new paths. Also in attendance were Bulgari CEO Jean-Christophe Babin, Ambassador of Italy to China Ettore Fracesco Sequi as well as Bulgari brand ambassador Shu Qi. As a ceremony that serves as a platform for aspiring young women, it will hopefully continue to solidify these aspirations into reality as more and more women become recognised for their continued success and excellence.
