A fashion blogger of Chinese origin first started her blog in January, 2010. In the following month, she set up a complementary fan page on Facebook. Miao has lived a kind of nomadic lifestyle between Hong Kong and Perth, Perth and Europe and so on since she was a child. Her multicultural background has exposed her to various lifestyles and different attitudes towards fashion yet even strengthened her motherland ties and her pride in being Chinese. Having worked in visual merchandising and marketing for the brands such as Ralph Lauren and TSE New York, Miao was trained to have a good eye on fashion and luxury goods. She doesn’t believe fashion as an individual entity, it has got to be linked up with history and culture. Miao is especially keen on the design inspired by oriental aesthetics. She sees it as her mission to bring any talented Chinese/Asian designers to the world’s attention.
Realizing the blogging market is so over-saturated, which means fashion bloggers from all over the world are doing more or less the same thing. Miao, being conscious of her Chinese heritage, tends to make her blog unique and genuine by specializing herself in oriental-inspired fashion with eastern motifs cross-fertilizing western styles which brings an exotic feel to it. While most bloggers are keeping an eye on the traditional “Big Four” fashion cities in the West and craving for the latest news about Karl Lagerfeld, Miao is exploring the emerging fashion markets in the East and helps spread the word about the best up-and-coming designers from China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, etc. On top of that, La Mode by GV Miao provides a platform for fashionistas to comment on their favorite oriental/ethnic/folklore designs and express their views on fashion of an oriental theme. Followers are also welcome to leave words about what they think “orientalism” may possibly mean, and what necessary elements should be there to make it oriental fashion. Miao, in addition to being a keen admirer of the glitz and glamour of oriental style, celebrates antique and vintage fashion in her blog. What makes each historical piece special and appealing is the story behind them. It is indeed an interesting experience to feel like having gone through a nostalgia phase when blogging about vintage.

I mainly focused on the American/European fashion circle when I first launched my La Mode by GV Miao in 2010. It’s not until the first quarter of 2012 that I start to get in touch with other bloggers based in Hong Kong and the local media and PR experts. It’s my honor to be officially part of the Hong Kong fashion bloggers family. Thanks #HKFashionBloggers for making this happen!
