Lan Clothing Shop carries Chinese-style apparel with an emphasis on women¡¯s wear. Their clothes harmonize traditional and modern elements. All the items are hand-made, each one-of-a-kind. You can observe the tailor sewing in a backroom.
Owner and designers pay attention to every detail of the clothes, from the choice of the material to the embroidery on the cuff and the neckline.
As I was talking with the owner, two Italian girls bought five pieces of clothing each. The owner said it happened very frequently in her shop. Foreigners do like her clothing line, and she is planning to open a shop in Paris, France. The New York Times once reported on her work.
Prices range from RMB 200 to RMB 450. They are marked clearly on the clothes. Since demand exceeds supply, the owner is thinking of increasing her prices in the near future.
