Fashion at the Met

I’m still trying to bring more “fun stuff/news” to you and try to find “normal people” when I have more time, as many of you also want articles on regular people.

If you haven’t heard what the latest exhibition at the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York), it’s on Chinese-inspired fashion, though not limited to fashion; they also featured some films.  I’m not just bringing this article to you because of the theme; it’s also because the largest portion of international visitors for this exhibition happens to be Chinese (from China) who wants to see what Western views of them look like.  I’m glad to read that all that old, stereotyped exoticism of China is not in this exhibition.  There are an unexpected amount of positive results from visitors so please read the article.  If you have been to this event (and others) I encourage you to share with the rest of us about your experience with the Met and this event.

I copied and pasted this article/review from the NY Times.  Visit the source for more images.

Exhibition on China and Fashion Proves Golden for Met

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
