Q: What's with Chinese fashion?

Ok so there's one thing that gets to me every day... some of the outfits and accessories women wear here. I mean, it sometimes baffles me how they even manage to get that much glitter and tack on one outfit. So the question is: do Chinese women actually like that fashion or are they wearing it because they can't afford anything else?

A lot of it is quite ridiculous, I agree. Seeing all these girls with grapevines around their shoes or fake plastic diamonds everywhere is just...

I don't think it's so much a question of money, though...I think a lot of the tawdry stuff is indeed limited funds mixed with bad taste, but for the fancier stuff, it's also excessive and gaudy.

Guess it just takes time for fashion to hit in...or maybe this is just what people like here Tongue

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
