Goodness, Gracious, Great Wall of China!

Now I have another reason to despise fashion.

A faggot read this blog and was amazed! It seems that Fendi (Italian fashion designer brand) staged a fashion show on the Great Wall of China.



China and Fendi?


The marriage seems perfect. Both Fendi and China are aimed at huge economical growth. In fact, since the late 1980s, China's GDP has nearly quadrupled
and it seems Fendi is capable of producing those results in much less time. Fendi, in 2006, made a 350million Euro profit and planned to double that by 2008. Meanwhile, there is still no food for the poor.

So, with economical bullshit aside, I'd like to know what the point is of staging a fashion show on the Great Wall of China. My possible explanation for such ridiculous behavior is (a) Fendi thinks they are 'tearing down borders' between the East and West with their fashion-which is really amazing. . . does fashion have that much power?, (b) Fendi, in the light of World War III, finds Fashion much more important or (c) Fendi wanted to prove that with enough money, you can do whatever you want on whatever pieces of should-be-preserved history you want.


I really cannot believe that Fendi and China had the audacity to let something like this take place (though I hear China put up a 1 year struggle against the event).


I wonder how much they sold out for?
