There's always existed in Asia these hidden invisible fortunes and people who spend millions of dollars a year on the finest things in life but do it totally under the radar.


How much of my book is based on reality? About a hundred and fifty percent.

我写的书 (《疯狂亚洲富豪》) 有多少真实成分?大概百分之一百五吧

Couture week in Paris is the creme de la creme. We're talking about dresses that start in the tens of thousands and go up to the millions.


And only about 2 thousand women in the world can afford to dress this way.

全世界大概只有 2000 名富婆负担得起

I was lucky enough to spend couture week in Paris with some truly stylish insiders.


Exactly. Feiping Chang is this dynamo. She, I think, was raised partially in Sydney and in Singapore. She now makes Hong Kong her home where she's become one of the most important fashion influencers in Asia.


It's always nice coming back to Fashion Week. And you join your fashion family and see everybody. It's always a nice little reunx.


I don't think Americans for the most part really understand how this level of Asian women shop. When I see something come down the runway I know in my gut and in my heart that it's meant to be. I think that connection makes everything more special.


Everything's really about this private experience.Couture itself was made to make the client feel special. It's made for you.


Going to these very exclusive fashion shows and then going for your private fittings.


But then also there are jewelry showings and jewelry parties where they meet jewelers and sext stones and really being in that world of helping to create what they buy. So the spending is on a whole other level.


I really want to see the behind the scenes and the seamstresses are the real heroes. That's true. It's so nice to see where all the materials and all the embroidery comes from before it gets to the runway.


Like Lesage, I'm in love with. Like the embroidery is so beautiful.

像我崇拜的刺绣工匠 François Lesage,他的刺绣品太漂亮了。

You have an appointment and then you just get to try on all these beautiful clothes and decide which piece you want.


Even just going to fittings or like when you're attending shows they're just there putting dresses on you. It's just so fun.


On average we do sort of three fittings cause I think my body changes during that time anyways.


What are the shows you're looking forward to?


Definitely Giambattista Valli tonight. He's my favorite as you know, so...

富婆道:绝对是今晚的 Giambattista Valli,你知道的,他是我最爱的设计师 ......

He did your wedding dress right?


Yes, he did.


What was the process like? I came to Paris a year before my wedding. At first I was only going to do one dress and then in the end it evolved into two very different dresses which was great.


Because the main dress was a big tulle creation. And the second one is entirely made of silk, so... and it has these hand crafted petals that he painted each petal on.


So did he supervise the fittings?


You do the most beautiful customizing on the Birkins.


So you paint on them don't you?


Well, I do.


When did that start?


I had a lizard skin Birkin and it was orange and I was eating french fries at Chile's.


And they had cheese so I did not notice that it was already under my bag when I brought it home. I tried to clean it and I asked around and it was just impossible to fix.


So I said, "Okay, why don't I paint on it?" And I loved it.


Do you get a sense that you are a part of this new generation? of sort of fashion influencers?


You know, there's no other way to put it.


They lives these lives of imperial splendor.
