The traditional art form of Beijing Opera is colourful, amazing, beautiful.
I love it, even though I hardly understand what the actors are saying or singing, the costumes are amazing. I have always been drawn to Beijing opera and its vibrant aesthetic is
a perfect match for my own preferred palette.

Tang Dynasty Women
The Tang Dynasty always struck a chord with me as a time of sumptuousness and beauty. Women of the Tang Dynasty were prized for their womanly curves. As much as I like the present, I am also drawn to the rich history of China’s past.
