Also supposed to be part of the trip was Li YiTong (SNH48 Team HII) who is an image ambassador for Harbin Beer.
Sadly, both Chen QianNan and Li YiTong were not able to secure visas to visit the United States and, as a result, only Dai Meng and Xu JiaQi will represent the group in New York.
The missing members will be given another opportunity during the upcoming Shanghai Fashion Week in March.
Dai Meng and Xu JiaQi arrived at John F Kennedy international airport on the morning of February 9th (local time) where they were greeted by several fans before being called to do a quick promo photoshoot and then sent to get rest before the event on the same evening.
The fashion show featuring Pony products and some Harbin branded attire (as the co-sponsors) welcomed several Chinese artists and medias as guests.
