1. What is your favourite colour?
Well, I love vibrant colours, especially bright red. You know, clearly, red symbolizes good fortune and wealth in our culture, so Chinese normally dress in red during Lunar New Year. Moreover, the jacket in red really matches me well.
2. Do you usually wear clothes in your favourite colour?
Yes, my favourite colours are black and white and I love wearing clothes in neutral colours because it can reflect my personality. Actually, I’ve seen some of the fashion magazines telling that monochromic shirt is the future fashion trend.
3. Are there any colours that have a special meaning in your country?
Sure, Chinese people actually are quite superstitious. They put different meaning on colours, like for example, red, yellow and green are occasionally used for festivals in order to express their joyfulness and happiness. So, they normally combine these colours together to decorate their home and courtyard.
4. Do you think different types of people like different colours?
Sure, well, I think people in different personality will certainly affect their faourite colour, what I mean is, if they are sportive, outgoing with positive thinking, they’ll choose something like warm colours, you know like, red, orange and yellow, which tend to make you think of sunlight and warmth.
5. How important do you think colours are?
Well, I’d say, colour is a crucial ingredient in our daily life, especially when related to culture and religion. For instance, in Chinese culture, yellow signifies freedom from worldly cares and that’s why all monks’ garments are in yellow.
