China’s First It-Girl?

25 Apr

Dawn is breaking on China’s era of wealth and world-travel – I know this because I live in Dubai and I can see it with my very own eyes!

Out of almost no-where (at least it seems), large groups of Chinese tourists are scrabbling over Louis Vuitton bags at the Dubai Mall and booking out the Burj al Arab. The high-end boutiques are suddenly catering to Mandarin-speakers and the Jumeirah hotel chain is focussing on its Chinese customer base – a sign for me, that luxury is important to China’s new money.

And then, like a fairy she appears – FAN BING BING – China’s first IT-GIRL is here!

Apparently the “turban” was a shawl she creatively wrapped around her head. I think she must have read my post, The Turban Goes Urban

And here she is in Dior:

So what or who do we think we’ll see next from China? It’s an exciting time for them – I look forward to all it brings!
