Mary Ching

Did my weekly magazine binge on Sunday and picked up a copy of Elle Decor Italia's June issue. In it I spotted a photo of Shanghai-based designer Mary Ching's wacky store...

I did a bit of exploring on her site and I love the massive platforms and metallic snakeskin...
Plus she has the most adorable blog about living in Shanghai and, among other things, how to pick up guys in a sports bar wearing her World Cup ballet flats!
Most importantly, her collection is "proud to be 'Made in China, Created in Shanghai.'" Here in Italy 'Made in China' has a pretty bad reputation, so it's refreshing to see a young designer promoting luxury footwear 'Made in China.'
