I heard the following blurb on NPR this morning:
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:Buzzfeed provides some excellent images from the online boutique and the following quotes:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. Leading with a great pair of legs helps to make it as a model. And apparently, being a 72-year-old granddad doesn't hurt. Liu Xianping advised his granddaughter on her fashion business and thoughts on mix and match, then he modeled the look. The photos went viral. Sales skyrocketed. Here's how to get the look. Pile on the layers and lace and his signature thigh-high red stockings. It's MORNING EDITION.
This definitely makes me to be happy.
Liu's granddaughter on how the whole thing began:He picked up one piece and tried to give some advice on how to mix and match. We thought it was fun so we started shooting.Via: offbeatchina.com
Liu's awesome quote about his modeling:Why [is it] unacceptable for someone like me to wear women’s clothes? Modelling for the store is helping my granddaughter and I have nothing to lose. We were very happy on the day of the shooting. I’m very old and all that I care about is to be happy.
