yummmy outfits and dirty wishlists
so there was this really great study which shows that most luxury designers denies of having their products "Made in China", but in reality, almost everything is ïndeed - "Made in China" - though nobody speaks about it. Giorgo Armani and Coach were among the more 'vulgar' ones to admit so.. and now they're all shifting to Vietnam - where labor is 20% to 30% cheaper than China (or 60% lower than that of European countries). My friend once set off to Guangdong, China (where most of the factories for luxury items are located) and bought some items, which she claimed looks pretty much the real thing (she frequently buys real stuffs btw) that we wonder, "could these be actually the real thing? knowing that most of the brands today manufactures their products there...?"
and if only my new targets could speak to me, they'd probably say this...
but then again, that's why we are called shopaholics right? (which sometimes, i don't know... is it actually good? or bad?)
