Buyun says that morning she just threw on her few remaining clean clothes, so it was a bit of a shock to be included in a style blog. Born in Fujian, she has lived in NYC since the age of three, growing up on Roosevelt Island of all places. This little strip in the East River was originally intended as a kind of utopian community where all the classes would mix freely, but the end result was somewhat dystopian. Apparently, the youth of Roosevelt Island get pregnant earlier, use illegal substance in greater quantities, and generally become life-long hooligans if they don’t escape to Manhattan. Buyun made it to the larger island and is now getting her PHD at a famous school there. Her focus is Chinese fashion history, particularly the Tang. We might include some her findings on Stylites in the future.
