I had been meaning to put this one up for a while. Li Mengxia (李孟夏) is one of the most well-known and admired figures on the Beijing magazine publishing scene. He has worked in numerous capacities as a creative director, art director, and editor. I don’t have time for fact checking right now, so I won’t mention each of his various positions. He has been associated with Modern Media (现代传播) for quite a few years. One of his position was heading up the City Life section of Modern Weekly (《周末画报》城市版), to which I contribute a weekly column based on this blog.
Quite an interesting detail on his wool tie, which was purchased at Lane Crawford. The peacock feather type ornament on his lapel was what all VIPs received at the event that night.
