My nephew Combo (not his real name but what he prefers to be called!) is 21 years old and he lives in China with all my other family members.

Combo is that type of person who was born with a lovable personality. He was super cute when he was very little. I almost never heard him crying and he was always smiling. After he woke up from his nap, he would just lay quietly playing with his two little feet, putting them into his mouth or kicking around. One day, when he was only 3 years old, he said he wanted to go shopping with me. I told him I would not be able to carry him if he got tired. I mean no one is THAT cute! Anyway, he said that is ok and he still wanted to go. After we arrived at the mall, he was very happy and even more excited after his favorite auntie got him an ice-cream. It doesn’t matter that I am his only auntie, I would have been the favorite regardless. Anyway about a half hour later, I saw he was walking a lot slower. 15 minutes after that, he said he needed to squat down for a short break. I thought maybe he needed to use the restroom but he said he was OK. I don’t have my own kids and have never been a babysitter so I was clueless. After several times of these squat breaks I finally realized that he might actually be tired. He sure was! I felt horrible that I didn’t even notice. He said he was ok and just needed a little break. That whole day he never asked me to pick him up or finish my shopping early so I could take him home. He has always been this little mature man his whole life.

Since Combo was not much older than when we took that shopping trip, he’s always tried to take care of me and to be the best he can. When he was in the 4th grade, my sister-in-law called me to tell me Combo was crazy in love with hip-hop dancing. She hoped I could talk him out of it but I decided to support him. He worked very hard and now he is a pretty famous hip-hop dancer and DJ in our hometown area. He even started his own business selling hip-hop apparel.

That is why I said OK when DREAM BUT NOT SLEEP asked me if I would like to collaborate with them. This brand reminds me of Combo. They have so many things in common. Young and creative, originality and never giving up!

What is American fashion style? Can you give us a clear answer? You may say America was born by variety so American style is not just one style, it is a mixture of all styles from all over the world. Have you ever wondered what American style is in a foreigners eyes?

I came across this amazing video called 100 Years Of Fashion In Under Two Minutes from http://www.buzzfeed.com/abagg/100-years-of-fashion-in-under-two-minutes#.gca8pBzGV. It is the perfect data for American fashion history.

Personally I am a big fan of styles from the 20s, 30s, 50s, 60s and 70s. But keep it in mind, China only opened it’s doors to the world in the early 80s. Chinese were confused, shocked and then crazy in love with those 80s signatures, big hair, big jewelry, big color, and bright makeup! Do you still remember that bright blue eye shadow? Anyway, the point is that American style means a whole lot different depending on if it’s being looked at through yours or Chinese eyes.

How much do you think you know China? Or any other countries? How did you know them? Did you personally travel to those countries or maybe just heard something from your friends or co-worker. Or maybe you read something in the newspaper or watched a show on TV or saw somewhere in a movie. Well, it is still very hard for Chinese to easily travel to America due to both government’s policies, so Chinese got most of their info about America through those Movies, TV shows and pop songs.

Then what exactly is American style in Chinese eyes?

1. Sexy:
It is all on Madonna! For Chinese, American style means a big bust, deep cleavage and showing a lot of skin. Even in 2015, there are still a lot of places in China that are quite conservative, so much that even short sleeves and shorts will make them feel uncomfortable. I still saw young girls wear nude tights during the summer with a dress and sandals last year when I was back visiting China. They would rather be uncomfortable with thick hot tights than bare their legs. Imagine the first time when Chinese saw Madonna. Lol!

2. Strange, or maybe the more accurate term FREE STYLE
In Chinese eyes, Americans will wear anything and everything. A potato sack looking dress, a shirt with swear words, a Zombie’s makeup look or painters jeans. Well, we have to give credit to all that creativity!

3. Minimalism
Now that there are more and more Americans who travel, work or live in China, the Chinese started to see the real American style. A lot of Chinese are amazed how Americans can look so good just in jeans and Tees. Lol! Probably, Americans are the most welcomed foreigners in China due to their friendly attitude, big smile (with very white teeth), easygoing manner, clean style and very fresh smell.
