My little China girl.
Oh oh oh ohoooo my little China girl – David Bowie RIP
It is 2 at night in Hangzhou China and I cannot sleep. So excited! Just made a deal with a Chinese factory to produce my first cushion collection .
Designed in Ibiza, produced in China, customized and restyled in Ibiza to make each cushion an exclusive “one piece only”. And of course a matching basic collection. Half of June they will arrive in Rotterdam harbour and they will be sold through my webshop www.gertdesign.com (now under construction).
Here are some pictures of my time in Hangzhou:
Work pictures, travel pictures, food pictures and some fun pictures:
One of my inspirations is Empress Wanrong from The Forbidden City. This beautiful (little) Chinese girl was opium addicted and died in jail at the age of 39. Actress Joan Chen played her in Bernardo Bertolucci’s “The Last Emperor”.
