To my mind, fashion is more about TASTE and STYLE than objects and obsessions, which belong to the terrain of fad and fetish.
New York, New York (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
CHINA HAPPENINGS™ is pleased to announce that its founder Chiu-Ti Jansen appears in HERSELF Magazine Amazing Issue’s “I AM – Self-Portraits with Words” feature, which hits the stand on March 5, 2014 (http://herselfmagazine.com/i-am/). “I AM” asks inspiring, influential and gorgeous women to style themselves with the most compelling of the accessories: WORDS. Previous features included portraits of Anna Dello Russo (editor-at-large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan), Margherita Missoni (fashion designer), Julia Restoin Roitfeld (model and Chich+Slick art director) and Erika Bearman (Oscar PR Girl for the Oscar de la Renta brand), to name a few.
Chiu-Ti Jansen, Founder of the CHINA HAPPENINGS™ brand, commented: “To my mind, fashion is more about TASTE and STYLE than objects and obsessions, which belong to the terrain of fad and fetish. I am delighted and honored to be featured by HERSELF Magazine, which is an embodiment of the international outlook that is dear to my heart.”
Some the fifteen “I AM . . . “ statements from Ms. Jansen’s feature are as follows:
“I AM too Chinese to be a Westerner.
I AM too Western to be a Chinese.
I AM a tree that travels with its roots.
I AM indifferent to trends.
I AM Apollonian and Dionysian in one.”
