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.
Domestic celebrities can enhance the viewing experience when they make ch

At a giant venue at Beijing’s 751 Park, a stage was decorated like a replica of an apartment building in New York.
Then, a few minutes after the event host appeared from the door, three windows opened, with
上海419品茶微信comedian Chen Peisi, actor Feng Shaofeng and Taiwan singer-actress Amber Kuo appearing from them.
Each of the guests then hugged a furry creature resembling the an
imal characters they perform in the voice-overs for the upcoming Hollywood an上海419
imation sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, which will open across the Chinese mainland on Friday.
上海419品茶微信In the film, Chen is the voice of the conceited rabbit Snowball, while Feng dubs t
he canine protagonist Max, and Kuo lends her voice to Gidget, a white Pomeranian.
As well as the three celebrities, the film also features renowned director Feng Xiaogan上海419
g and actress Ma Li, who lend their voices to two of the major animal characters in the Mandarin version.
At a news conference held in the Chinese capital on June 25, the stars tried to strike
上海419a chord with local audiences through sharing personal stories about raising pets.
Meanwhile, latest data from the box-office tracker Maoyan showed that the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entert上海419品茶微信
ainment production has topped the presale box-office charts for animation features as of Friday.
Comments on review aggregator Douban, an important reference point for fans to select their weekend viewing, also suggest上海419
ed that the film had drawn the highest number of potential theatergoers for its opening day.
For most industry observers, the film typifies the latest efforts by foreign animati上海419品茶微信
on productions to grab attention in China, the world’s second-largest movie market.
上海419Jiang Yong, a Beijing-based analyst, says that using Chinese celebrities for the Mand
arin voice-overs is a pivotal part of the local marketing strategy for imported animation films.
“And, despite the fact that most adult viewers, especially those in their 20s or 30s, are used to watching native language orig上海419品茶微信
inals with subtitles, the Mandarin version is the top option for families with young children,” adds Jiang.
But while stars can boost ticket sales, some of them have also sparked contro
versy, mostly due to skepticism surrounding their inadequate voice-over techniques.
nt history, the relocation of some manufacturing industries from
上海龙凤1314China to overseas destinations is inevitable given the extent of China’s development. On the other h
and, this phenomenon does not mean China will lose its manufacturing and economic power.上海龙凤1314品茶微信
During the previous five industrial migrations, the economic development of the leading countries that hosted such industries didn’t stop after
some of the traditional sectors relocated to other countries. Instead, they soon saw the rise of new industries, high-end m上海龙凤1314
anufacturing and the service sector－and they are still developed economies. For example, the US is still the world’s larg
上海龙凤1314品茶微信est economy even 60 years after the third industrial migration, while Japan, Germany and Britain are ranked among the
top seven economies in terms of size and quality even decades after the industrial migration.上海龙凤1314
Relocation speed and scope not alarming
As a country with the world’s largest population, the third-largest territory, and the longest continuous上海龙凤1314
economic growth curve, China’s case will be the same even after the relocation of some of its manufacturing industries.
First, as mentioned above, the speed and scope of the manufacturing units’ relocation from China are not as fast and large as s
上海龙凤1314品茶微信ome people imagine. The industrial relocation from China started after the 2008 global financial crisis br
oke out, accelerated in 2012, and gained pace last year due to the Sino-US trade conflicts.
But the consequences are not expected to be very serious. For instance, from 2008 to 2018, global trade grew at an annual aver
age rate of 2.4 percent, while China saw 6.3 percent annual average export growth, which shows China’s export g上海龙凤1314品茶微信
rowth has been not only steady, but also 3.9 percentage points higher than that of global trade.
As a result, the share of China’s exports in global exports rose from 8.9
percent in 2008 to 12.9 percent in 2018, an increase of 4 percentage points. Which is a clear indica上海龙凤1314
tion that the relocation of manufacturing industries from China is not fast enough to make us feel worried.
Second, the rapid rise of emerging manufacturing industries in China will to a large extent offset t上海龙凤1314
he impact of the relocation of low-end industries on its entire manufacturing industry and e上海龙凤1314品茶微信
conomy. Therefore, China will continue to be a manufacturing and economic powerhouse.
e the more warships that it and its allies have in the strait, the more risk there is of an inadve

That the US stopped short of launching a retaliatory military attack agains
上海419论坛品茶微信t Iran after Iran shot down its surveillance drone suggests that the US does not want a w
ar with Iran. It hopes that its sanctions and maximum pressure will finally make Iran give in.
But that is very unlikely given the way Iran has responded to wh
at the US has done. The best solution to the current stand-off is for both sides to take a step back,上海419论坛
which Iran already seems to have taken, and engage in talks, talks in which the US should not ask for too much.
The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信
sed of involvement in a drug-related case in Yantai, a coastal city in Shandong province.
Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛
volving foreign students is under investigation and one of the people involved in the case is a Canadian citizen.
上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian
gsu province, where a police crackdown resulted in the arrest of 19 people, including 16 foreigners.
He said public security authorities had made consular notificati上海419论坛
ons to relevant embassies in a timely manner and will arrange consular visits.
China will safeguard the legitimate rights of the parties concerned in accordance with law, Geng added.
The new case came as tensions continue in Sino-Canadian上海419论坛品茶微信
relations, sparked last year by the detention of Huawei’s chief financial offic
er, Meng Wanzhou, in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition.
For those who are concerned about China’s economic well-being, the first half-year fig
ures released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday may not be enough to relieve them of their worr上海419
ies, especially given the ongoing trade conflict with the United States and weakening global demand.
上海419After all, a 6.2 percent growth in the second quarter — although still within the gove
rnment’s target range of 6-6.5 percent for the year — was the weakest in nearly three decades.上海419
This, together with lukewarm trade readings released on Friday — exports fell 1.3 percent in June from a year earlier and imports dropped 7.3 percent — sugge
sts economic conditions are still severe and, with external uncertainties on the rise, the economy “is under new dow
上海419女神会所nward pressure”, as NBS spokesman Mao Shengyong said at a news conference.
But again, this is really a question of do you see the glass half empty or half full, given that
China remains one of the world’s fastest-growing major economies. While pessimists focus on the diffi
culties, optimists see the silver lining of the Chinese economy’s remarkable resilience given the headwinds it faces.上海419
For example, retail sales, a major gauge of consumption, surged 9.8 percent, much higher than the expected 8.5 percen
t and also the highest since March 2018. Many analysts attribute the progress to the central government’s ef
forts to boost domestic consumption — these range from massive tax cuts of nearly 2 trillion yuan ($291 billion) to the iss上海419女神会所
uance of 2.15 trillion yuan of special bonds by local governments for infrastructure construction.
上海419Other strong data, such as a 6.3-percent increase in industrial output an
d a 5.8-percent rise in January-June fixed asset investment, all indicate that the fund
amentals for steady growth remain unchanged and the government still has ample room for policy maneuvers.
Actually, once last month’s much-better-than-expected gains in retail上海419女神会所
sales, factory output and fixed-asset investment were announced, the market quickly cast its vot
上海419女神会所e of confidence in the Chinese economy. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index ended 0.4 percent up on Monday a

Pan said these achievements are manifestations of China’s growing technol
上海乌托邦ogical capability, fueled by the desire to use innovations to push socioeconomic progress.
This, however, has led to some Western countries, such as the US, fearing that China’s scientific and te
chnological rise will challenge their global position. “This sentiment is understandable, but misguided,” he said.
“China is still a developing country, lacking a base and accumulation of innovation capability compared with the US, as w 上海乌托邦品茶微信
ell as drastically different national conditions,” Pan said. “This means we cannot follow the deve
上海乌托邦lopmental path that the West expects us to take, and we have to forge our own path one step at a time.
“But now the US is treating China like a developed country capable of challenging its global dominance, it is holding China to sta
ndards that we cannot meet for the time being, and it makes accusations against us if we don’t,” he said.
As of late May, the US Department of Commerce had placed more t 上海乌托邦品茶微信
han 140 entities from the Chinese mainland on its Entity List, a ledger of firms legally pro
上海乌托邦hibited to trade with the US, on the basis of an alleged threat to US national security and interests.
In June, five entities were added to the list: Chinese supercomputer manufacturers and institutions including Sug
on, Higon and the Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, the chipmaker for China’s most powerful sup
ercomputer, Sunway TaihuLight, which also ranked as the third most powerful globally. 上海乌托邦
The United States also is targeting Chinese scholars and students b
y closing their labs or denying visas to visit the US over alleged spying dangers. In May, Emo
上海乌托邦品茶微信ry University in Atlanta fired neuroscientists Li Xiaojiang and his wife, Li Shihua, both US citizens who had worked
at Emory for more than two decades, accusing them of hiding funding and ties to institutions in China.
“These actions are antithetical to the US’ immigrant roots and inte 上海乌托邦
rests, and will impede global scientific exchange and progress,” Pan said.

上海419品茶微信hina’s Tiangong II space lab will spend its last days in orbit this week before making a controlled fall on
Friday back into Earth’s atmosphere, according to the China Manned Space Agency.
All of the space lab’s assigned tasks have been finished. It is scheduled
to fall out of orbit and reenter the atmosphere under ground control on Friday, the agency said. 上海419
Most of the spacecraft will burn up during the reentry process, with a small amount of de

The space lab also carried out a series of scientific and technological experiments.

The premiere of the concerto also marked the completion of the Symphonic Music in China 1949-2019 project which was上海后花园女神会所

上海后花园The collection of music albums and publications will be released in September
, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
Born in Beijing in 1953, Zhou Long is known internationally for his works that blend Easte上海后花园
rn and Western music. According to Beijing-based music critic Li Hong, Zhou Long was among the first ge
neration of musicians from China to study abroad after the nation’s opening-up in the 1980s.
上海后花园女神会所Zhou Long’s composition for Madame White Snake, an opera based on Chinese folklor

Classics of Mountains and Seas is a compilation of mythical Chinese tales. The classic text da
tes back as early as the 4th century BC, but the surviving form is traced to the Han Dynasty (206 BC-220). The上海后花园
book is divided into 18 sections, but instead of following the narrative of the original text, Zhou Long created a con
certo of five movements, each depicting the mountains and landscapes in nort上海后花园女神会所
