The greatest China story ever told!

If you have ever meet an Erhart, you will probably be struck by their worldliness by the time the conversation has closed. The Erharts have lived and traveled all over the world, some get lost, others lose their keys. Where they are going and what they are doing can vary as the places they have been, but one thing is for sure, they do it in style. The Erhart look, bringing smiles, is seen on all corners of the earth.
Most recently, an Erhart traveled to the Hunan providence in China. Joining other designers from Portland, Erhart shared the runway at the Chinese Fashion Week. These designers were chosen because of their use of sustainable practices, such as local production and vintage material. The Chinese loved it! We loved it, and most importantly, there are cool photos of the trip!
After showing at the Chinese Fashion Week, getting on the cover of the local newspaper, and having a great time, the clothes were taken to the schools. Erhart was shared to the youth of China in a mini runway fashion. Now that I think about it, this isn't the first time an Erhart was spotted in a classroom overseas. Momma Erhart was seen teaching classrooms in both Germany and Egypt. Schoolin the kids, one country at a time!
