Shu Pei ( Shu Pei Qin)

"Exclusive interview with Shu Pei, top model, backstage at the Anteprima Fashion Show in Milano."

Shu Pei, 21 years old, is one of the biggest names in the army of Chinese models which took the fashion world by storm recently. We met Shu Pei, and interviewed her, backstage at the Anteprima Fashion Show in Milano (Woman Fall Winter 2011 2012).

Shu Pei was just finished with her make-up and making a few phone calls. We asked for an interview, and she accepted, and was very nice and patient with us (patient because you have no idea how busy and crowded a typical backstage can be…). Alessio Cristianini
