My name is Jian, a native Chinese, a culture lover. I am the founder of JJ Fashion Co., web designer of ModernQipao.com and I am working on launch my own fashion line. I come to the U.S. in my twenties to study illustration in AAU. Now I am living in sunny California with my beautiful curle hair daughter and love ones. After left art field nearly 10 years ago, I have been running several Asian arts, crafts and clothing retail store in numbers of bay area malls. Then I decided to go back to my field and start my own fashion line at 2012.
By communicate with my western Asian cultural lover customers, I learned that it’s difficult for them to purchase an suitable oriental fashion for several simple reasons: the size and the occasion. Most Asian are smaller the westerners, so does our dresses; it’s difficult to find the occasion to wear the beautiful Asian style clothes…
Being a cultural lover including my own, my plan is to design some modern unique fashion combines with contemporary form with traditional oriental touch. The original idea of having a place for westerner to purchase eastern style clothing was to learn about internet marketing and the customers’ desire. Now the idea expand to several different websites: www.ModernQipao.com, www.AsianInspiredFashion.com, www.RedChineseDress.com and the one going to carry my own design (will be announce soon before Christmas 2014) Hopefully to help more Asian cultural lovers to find what they are looking for. Thank you for your support!
