Shenzhen, China.

Saturday, 4 February 2012



There is no denying that I entered Shenzhen with an inherently skeptical mind - this is, after all, the place that is famed for their 'super A' emulations of all the fashion giant handbags (Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Chanel ...) and since I am an ardent proponent of investing in the originals, I thought there would be little there for me. Indeed, Shenzhen is not my idea of a commercial mecca but after playing dress-ups in traditional costumes, posing in front of various miniature iconic monuments, and walking through the great expanses of lush landscapes at the Windows of the World theme park ... I left China with an inkling that I might return one day. 

Love, Mandy. xx
