Liu Qianping was visiting his 24-year-old granddaughter in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou recently when the women’s clothes the aspiring fashion entrepreneur was packing into boxes caught his eye. Liu, known affectionately as “MaDiGaGa” – funny elderly – is now one of China’s most recognized models.
Delighted with his new fame, Liu says he now sometimes looks at fashion program on television for ideas on how to pose but generally relies on Ting’s team for direction.
Imagine your grandfather as a woman’s fashion model. Personally, I just can’t do it nor do I want to. I just can’t see myself watching a sports game with my dad and grandfather in women’s clothing. Well, that was a pleasant fiction. Deuces.
