CHINA BLOGGER FEATURE
We have just started a new feature on our blog, where we will be interviewing bloggers from all around the world.
A different month will bring you a different country.
We are so excited about launching this, for it incorporates both our love of fashion & travel and what better way to see the world (through a screen) than from a bloggers point of view.
For our first month, April we have decided to focus on China as it the start of their Shanghai Fashion Festival, located on the central coast, Shanghai is China’s biggest city and global financial hub – definitely just got added to our bucket lists.
We are proud to introduce China Fashion Bloggers who have been kind enough to give us a little insight in to their fashion world! They have recently added a new Designer Feature showcasing Runway Photos and a Bloggers‘ page which shows all the contributing bloggers that make CFB possible!

Describe the blogging community in China?
Blogging in China is still relatively new. A lot of people call themselves bloggers as a sort of “catch all” phrase for KOLs, influencers, or celebrities that don’t have a specific profession like acting or singing… this has diluted the term, and the idea of a blogger is even further diluted by platforms like Weibo. Weibo is a microblogging service, so many people see themselves as bloggers, which is both good and bad.
Anyway can blog in China, and a lot of more independent and forward-thinking individuals have already jumped on board… but the number of high-quality bloggers in China right now are few and far between. CFB strives to identify the best blogging talent and put them all in one place, to foster a community of like-minded individuals with different perspectives. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t understand bloggers or think it is a nasty word for people with questionable working status and morals, but bloggers have a lot to offer not only the fashion community in China but society at large.
How would you describe China Fashion Bloggers and your style?
CFB is the perfect bridge between designers, retailers, and consumers in China. We offer a lot of different perspectives and styles. The style of the site is clean and minimal, as we choose to put the spotlight on our bloggers’ content as opposed to the design of the site itself.
Best places to shop in China?
MHT, Triple Major, Autumn Sonata, Alter, Dong Liang, Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como
China’s best kept travel secret?
Street food. Most people are afraid of it, but you should definitely try everything (except for maybe the meat products)… it’s cheap but better than a lot of fancy places in China.
Thank you so much for sharing your blog with us China Fashion Bloggers, we love seeing how different and similar fashion is around the world and can’t wait to see it first hand one day!
Stay tuned for our next guest blogger in May, and if you are a blogger from another country and want to join in on the fashion fun, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
