B: No country, but generally European models are easy to work with.

B: I have always liked Qi Gang’s work, he is great at combining Chinese elements with international fashion trends. Just one sentence: very international flavor, ahhh.
NF: Are there differences in the way Beijing and Shanghai dress?
