The good, the bad and the ugly. The weird and the wacky. As is the That’s tradition, we’ve compiled our 2019 China Year in Review series. So sit back, relax and relive the highs and lows of the last 12 months.


They say inspiration is all around you, and that’s exactly what 28-year-old designer Yang Yang drew from. The Anhui province-native looked to popular beverages for inspiration, personifying drinks like Nongfu Spring, Wanglaoji, Coca-Cola and more reimagined into modern fashionistas. These sketches first made the rounds on Chinese social media in June and quickly went viral. Will we be seeing any of these ensembles on the runway anytime soon? Nothing has been confirmed as of late October, but for now, check out these fierce looks below:
