My sister-in-law, Sarah, recently sent out a UK fashion magazine for Ava to peruse. There are Chinese versions of Marie Claire and Vogue here, but Ava swears their fashions and styles are different, and lag behind the West. Anyhow, Ava took the mag to read on the plane to Shenzhen where she goes each month to buy stock for her shop. Apparently she was quite taken by one of the jackets [see photo, left] and decided to track down the factory that makes Dolce and Gabana clothes for export. Sure enough, she found the exact same jacket for sale there at a fraction of the cost [see photo, right]. Smart girl - in more ways than one!!
