TIKTOK CHINESE STREET FASHION
While we have all been living this crazy COVID-19 Quarantine life for over half a year now. During this time, the social media app TikTok has become the nation’s, and the world’s, favorite past time. Why? Well to be honest, the videos on the app are fun to watch, create, and share.
Many businesses and those who rep brands are able to spread the word of those companies, same as social influencers who want to reach out and connect with more brands. It is a perfect platform to show off clothing, and in China, the people have taken it even further.
The fashion ranges from classic streetwear to traditional “hanfu” clothing reinterpreted in fresh, modern ways, and worn with a signature confidence and attitude that comes across especially strong when the slow motion effect is on.”-Hannah Hyclack, “These Hypnotizing Chinese Street Style Videos are Taking Over Tik Tok”
