At an Embassy event back in October, I met Angelica Cheung, editor of Vogue China. She was talking about the rise of Chinese fashion and mentioned that their 100th issue would be a China special, shot by Mario Testino.
And here it is: crammed full of Chinese models in Chinese locations (though the clothes are a mix of Chinese and western and of course the photographer is a London-based Peruvian). I have read elsewhere that the centennial issue is a powerful statement in the world of fashion and that Ms Cheung, daughter of a diplomat and married to a Brit, is now possibly more 'powerful' than Anna Wintour, whatever that means. I'm not sure what she'd say about that - she seemed very nice and down-to-earth. Anyway, that's it from your fashion correspondent today.
