Everyone else is affected by recession, but Anna Sui still stays on the cutting edge. She says, “To me, fashion is like a mirror. It’s a reflection of the times. And if it doesn’t reflect the times, it’s not fashion. Because people aren’t gonna be wearing it.” And no wonder. Her dresses attract celebrities like director Sofia Coppolla and Paris Hilton, who was wearing one of her designs on the red carpet right before she went to jail. Another time, Anna was asked to design a custom Barbie doll.

So, what is with these Chinese designers? As you should know, Vera Wang is very famous for her wedding gowns. And Jason Wu designed the first lady’s (Michelle Obama’s) inaugural gown. It looks like there is no recession for Chinese fashion designers. Let me correct that – it looks like there is no recession for talented fashion designers!
