Laowai magazine was created in 2012 as a free lifestyle magazine servicing the greater Shanghai area with a distribution of 15.000 monthly copies. - In my role as Senior Art Editor organized interviews, oversaw the design and contributed as a photo journalist to the Art & Design section. I also organized several cover shoots along with the final design.

This issue featured an interview with Anjara Garcia, a shameless self promotion of my own chair design; the Reading Chair, photography by Tim Franco, and an introduction of the beautiful Chinese Tea Ceremony.

Tell me a lile bit about your background andwhat drew you to the realm of fashion.
A:
As a self-taught designer my passion for design cameat a very early stage of my life. I guess seeing my grand-ma knit and sew at home inspired me to design my ownclothes from when I was very young. Later on, I decided
to connue with my passion by moving over to what is
considered the city of fashion in Spain: Barcelona. It wasthere where I had acquired my professional and aca-
demic experience in one of the best Fashion Schools of 
the country (Llotja). In the year 2003, I opened a fash-ion agency and a showroom in my hometown Seville.However, 2006 was the decisive year since it is when I
opened my rst bouque in the very centre of Madrid.The next big move was China in 2008, where the brandhas been growing ever since.

I arrived to China in 2008. At that me I was strugglingto nd the quality I wanted for my clothes at a compe

ve price in Europe, my producon was not massive atall so I decided to try to nd suppliers here in China.My English was limited and as you can imagine I didn’tspeak a word in Chinese so it was very challenging, Iused to travel North and South on my own to nd thesuppliers that would t my requirements and I did!The Chinese denitely have a dierent sense of style,but I believe they are embracing our Western styles
more and more. A good example of this is the good re-
cepon that Anjara Garcia has had from the very begin

Which era has inuenced you most in terms of your work as a designer?
A: I have always been fascinated by CHANEL and therevoluon it caused both in the Fashion industry and
socially.
Your collecons are directed towards womenwho live life to the fullest and do not wish tocompromise comfort for the sake of style. Whatpiece from your SS12 collecon should everywoman have in her wardrobe?
