Peter Xu is the top iconic fashion blogger with more than 1,5 million followers on Chinese twitter (Weibo).
“People love the stereotyped beauty but this is not what fashion and style is all about. It’s about reinventing itself and bringing something new & different to the table. And it’s usually a painful process. The clothes the above designers made were sometimes hated by the majority in the first place but became accept after years. They challenge themselves and so do the celebrities who dare to wear these controversial pieces. If you are new and different, there would be more stares and critics than praises. But these people persist and eventually established their own unique styles. Unlike most of the people who follow fashion and say ‘me too’, they dare to try and say ‘only me’.” – part of the interview from Fashion156.com
I started off as a player. I was still teaching TOEFL & SAT courses and doing projects for FMCG companies due to my previous background in L’Oreal. I think fashion found me first. I was invited to parties and events of Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Dior due to my influence. And I made my first ever fashion show attendance in Paris 3 years ago, after a press trip in Bordeaux.
Today, I do professional runway photography for many brands. Some of them even use my photoshoots for their official INSTAGRAM, blog & press release, for example, Pucci, Armani & the Brazilian brand Osklen that might be familiar to you. My vision now is to leverage my blog as a fashion/ runway coverage platform & PR platform to generate quality content with quality people I get to know in reality and digital world.
I benefited from blogging drastically. I have been traveling around the world. This year I’ve been to more than 20 cities. And I went to Mexico, Brazil, Greenland and so many cool places because of projects related to me & my blog.
