Overt sexiness has always seemed a bit out of place on Chinese girls themselves and on billboards throughout the country. Her appearance on the most recent cover of Vogue suggests Tang Wei is set to become everyone’s new fashion sweetheart.
An old star of Stylites, Tomasz Sajewicz, the leading Polish broadcaster in China, has now transferred down to Shanghai, where he is leading the media relations team at the Polish Pavilion at the World Expo. He was up in the capital for the weekend.
Those who fancy pretty girls near big machines should check out the next music festival at 751 D-Park where pipes, giants tanks formerly filled with toxins, smokestacks and other mysterious mechanisms abound.
Organized by Acupuncture Records, Beijing’s largest outdoor electronic music festival, Intro, was at D-Park in 798. There were a larger portion of foreign attendees than at indie-focused Strawberry Festival.
I guess giving the “Best Uniforms at the Expo” award to Italy is not exactly a shocker, especially given that they are designed by Prada.
The fabrics were a little bit too techno for me – I often find this with Prada – but the color and pattern matching is quite memorable. I will talk more about the Pavilion itself later, but Italy deserves to do well in the China market after such an effort. Having the backing of such major fashion houses helps of course.
