I am in a hotel room in Peking, lying on the bed and I am writing from my cell phone: I should sleep, rest but I cannot because I am too excited and full of adrenaline for tomorrow! Already today, just arrived, after a 15 hour journey:
Milan – Moscow, Moscow – Peking, I had my first work meeting.
I met the owner of a Chinese company for a future collaboration. As soon as the meeting was over I was joined by Jean, a local hair and make up stylist for a makeup test. A test brilliantly passed! She was unbelievable! Hair and make up of the highest quality in less than one hour.
Made up, combed, and dressed I started to shoot video.
My friends were right. They had warned me to write phrases translated in Chinese because here in Peking no one, not even in a four star hotel, speaks English.
I don’t agree with them about the food. In reality you can eat very well, Chinese cooking here is really delicious.
The city, Beijing (as big as Lazio), is lively, active, full of shops and places open even at night with live music.
Tomorrow is the starting day of Fashion Week. I will go to see Ne Tiger and Kopenahgen Fur, then two really important work appointments and finally we will start shooting the video for elle.it!
Keep your fingers crossed for me. Goodnight!
