Well, we were showing in Paris, London and New York, but three years
ago we went into the mainland. We luckily found a showroom that could help us. The mainla上海千花网女神会所
nd’s market is hard, because stores are very new; brands might not have a website, just WeChat. But sales have
上海千花网grown from our first season to now and it has been significant. The mainland has overtaken my orders from Europe. And of cour
se, the scale is different. We have around 25 points of sale there now. So yes, we’re focusing more and more on the mainland.上海千花网女神会所
Do you design especially for the mainland market?
We do tailor some of our designs, yes. I sometimes follow trends, but we c上海千花网
are more about ourselves and our feedback from the buyers, who will tell us what sol
d well last season. We take that and move forward. But if the buyer says a particular fit works, or a certain color, we上海千花网
will expand on those things. So we take about 50% of outside advice and add 50% of our own ideas.
The media seems to portray the brand as being for fashionistas, yet Cynthia & Xiao doesn’t feel entirely that way. Would you agree?
上海千花网女神会所Yes. It’s for fun kinds of girls who feel comfortable with themselves. We
do get some cool fashionistas who might wear our stuff and some Hong Kong KOLs [key opin
ion leaders]. But I don’t see our brand as a KOL thing. I’d rather have more people wearing and touching the prod上海千花网
uct than a KOL endorsement. I also don’t have a massive inventory of stuff, so I don’t need some super high-profile K
上海千花网OL. It’s about the right balance.Hongkongers don’t really seem to support their local designers – or their artist
s for that matter, either. But isn’t the current digital age meant to be all about disruption, inclusion and youth?
The mainland is also such a different kind of vibe from Hong Kong. They like that “girl-next-door” look, which is very relatable. These上海千花网
influencers are really successful, but you don’t know who they are. It’s a different type of visibility.
We find color just works. When we started out, the palette was more muted, with navy and grey – the idea being that pieces
上海千花网女神会所could be mixed and matched. But as we’ve grown, we’ve incorporated more color – lots of it! [laughs] – like yellow, r
ed, orange, neon green… stuff that’s really in-your-face. And they sell really well for us. The consumers seem to love it.
What’s your best-selling piece?上海千花网女神会所
Our favorite shape is something we call “oversize”. For some girls, it could literally be a dress,
but you would have to wear something underneath. Let’s just say it covers the bottoms and is our best-sel
ling shape no matter what we do. Then again, they also don’t want something too long. They like above the knee. If you co上海千花网
ver the knee, you look short. And of course, the aim is to look both short and thin. In Sha上海千花网女神会所
nghai, we always go shorter – a more fitted shape. Sometimes we make longer pieces, too.

The 2019 Chinese Science Education Summit was held in Beijing recently and its theme was “Make science education more scientific”.
Speaking at the event, Zou Caineng, an academician from the Chinese Acad上海419论坛

David G. Evans, a professor at Beijing University of Chemical Technology presented some sci上海419论坛品茶微信

As part of the funding, an initial 420,000 pounds ($527,000) of the investm

Washington should face the matter of deficit squarely: former vice-premier
The “real” trade imbalance between the world’s two largest economies has long been overstated b
上海龙凤1314女神会所y 20 percent. Better data would give a more balanced picture of Sino-US trade and reflect the gains th
at both sides derive from their economic relationship, said former Chinese Vice-Premier Zeng Peiyan.
There has always been divergence between Chinese and US figures on the bilateral trade gap due to the different met
hods used. Current methods omit trade in services from the trade balance, overlooking China’s role in processing tr上海龙凤1314女神会所
ade, and thus overestimating the trade deficit, Zeng told a seminar in Hong Kong on Tuesday.
The two-day event, themed “US-China Trade and Economic Relatio

presentatives and academics from home and abroad to share their insights on the year-old Sino-US trade friction, w

上海龙凤1314女神会所According to Chen, the robot is still a prototype and on the basis of that the two sides hope to step u

To bring an end to the protests sparked by the proposed amendments to the special administrative region’s extradit

ministration’s decision not to restart the suspended legislative process for the amendments, saying the “bill is dead”.
上海千花网女神会所The demonstrations, some of them violent, have threatened the health of the city’s economy and thus the well-being of its resi
dents, and Lam also unveiled a raft of practical initiatives aimed at strengthening communication between th
e SAR government and the public, with the ultimate objective of improving governance in the SAR.上海千花网女神会所
It might be demanding too much of those leading the protests to have the kind of vision and political courage exhibited by the chief exec
上海千花网utive in her willingness to make compromises in policymaking in the face of public opposition. But they sh
ould have the wisdom to realize that persistent political conflict and unrest do not bode well for the city and residents, es
pecially at a time when the local economy is still licking its wounds from the ongoing Sino-US trade row.上海千花网女神会所
Hong Kong’s economy has slowed significantly over recent months, with the yea
上海千花网r-on-year GDP growth having eased to 0.6 percent in the first quarter of this year — the
slowest expansion in a decade — as both foreign trade and domestic consumption have been hard hit by the tra
de conflict between the Chinese mainland and the United States, the city’s two largest trading partners. Any es上海千花网女神会所
calation of the social conflict witnessed recently will only further harm Hong Kong’s economy and people’s livelihoods.
上海千花网Yet, the organizers of some of the mass rallies have said they will announce
more protests in the coming days until the bill is officially withdrawn from the legi
slative agenda. But more social unrest will only hinder efforts to tackle the fundamental problems that have a ta上海千花网
ngible effect on the lives of Hong Kong residents, particularly the younger generation — such as the severe housing s上海千花网女神会所
hortage, lack of social upward mobility and the widening wealth gap, which have fueled the social discontent.

She has a big serve, dialing it up to 118 mph on Friday — only Hercog

As Hercog perfectly put it: “She’s probably older in her head than the numbers show.”上海夜生活
Hercog, who is ranked 60th, and is now 0-4 in third-round matches at majors, used a seven-game run to grab the open
上海夜生活品茶微信ing set, the first dropped by Gauff in qualifying or the main draw, and then go up 5-2 in the second.
With Gauff serving at 30-40, Hercog was a point from victory. But the teen conjured
up a backhand slice winner that dropped right on the chalk — a shot she only recently added to her repertoire.上海夜生活
After Gauff’s aggressive style paid off there, it was Hercog who really we

“We’ve been working on her poise all year,” Gauff’s father, Corey, said earlier in the week. “After that comes together, th
