Outside Beijing in Shunyi area between the never ending construction sites of new multi villa compounds a mall complex for brands had their grand opening. Fede and me were booked as performing artists to entertain the visitors with juggling tricks, slapstick, unicycling and bike tricks.
Jess and some other musicians were booked to play jazz music for the VIP guests. Jess received professional make-up and hair-do by the stylists of the models.
The Chinese fashion world seems strange to me. The models must be considered beautiful and handsome by somebody, or? I still wonder who likes their “fashion” clothes like for example the horrible cream colored skirt with black dots of the model on the left side of the picture. Or their ugly shoes that they have problems walking in. I might just not understand Chinese fashion.
The place was quite crowded and it was fun to do some bike tricks there.
Jess looked amazing in that silk cocktail dress and with a real flower in her hair.
Afterwards back in the city I met visiting friends in an outdoor “beer garden” style venue. It was the first time I got some mosquitoe bites this summer. But as always they were gone right away.
