Fei Fei Sun's Guide to Shanghai and Designers to Watch
Nov 07, 2011 - by Jessica Lapidos
About three years ago, Fei Fei Sun was just a gal about China, hangin' with her boyfriend in Shanghai. Several Paris Fashion Week video viewings later, and she's got the bug to wear it all; to be there in it. Fortunately her razor sharp jawline and chameleon abilities have allowed just that and she skyrocketed her to the fashion stratosphere.. Her first season out, she walked 30 shows without knowing a lick of English. Which I suppose proves the point that you can get by on just your good looks (and in this case, polite, intuitive silence and a fearsome smize). If you turn the tables and find yourself in Shanghai without knowing a damn word in Chinese, check what Fei Fei Sun advises you eat, see and shop in her city.
