Agence France-Presse to launch Chinese fashion app
Oct '13
Agence France-Presse (AFP) is to launch a Chinese-language fashion application in partnership with modern media holdings limited (MMH), a leading mainland china publisher, and Relaxnews, the Paris-based news agency focusing on lifestyle and luxury.

“iFashion AFP” is the first Chinese language fashion news content app launched in China. It provides fashion and creative contents including the major fashion weeks, industry events and exhibitions, parties, celebrities’ news, new fashion product releases and shop openings etc. The “iFashion AFP” user community can interact amongst each other and with the key industry players via this app.

The agreement signed with AFP gives MMH access to the agency’s fashion and luxury coverage in text, photo and video.

It also gives the Chinese group access to the production from AFP partner Relaxnews, which offers extensive coverage of global trends in fashion, recreation and lifestyle. Relaxnews subsidiary, Paris Modes, is a leading provider of fashion and lifestyle video.

AFP and Relaxnews, whose service was launched initially in French and English, announced in June they were expanding into the Brazilian market. Launched in 2009, the AFP Relaxnews wire has become the world's leading multi-media service on recreation.

“iFashion AFP” app is available in Chinese and is free for download on iPad effective from 30 September and the service will be available for iPhone and Android OS users in the coming months.
