LONDON — Chinese Internet behemoth JD.com is throwing its weight behind Britain as the country heads out of the European Union, with a deal to sell two billion pounds of Made in the U.K. goods to Chinese consumers over the next two to three years.
In a deal with the U.K. Department of International Trade during Theresa May’s first official visit to China as prime minister, JD said it will work with the DIT to make it easier for British companies to sell to Chinese consumers online via JD.com. JD chairman and chief executive officer Richard Liu met with May to discuss plans to help more U.K. brands reach JD’s more than 266 million customers.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
