Let's rewind the clock back to 1994.
Sir David Tang, the founder of Shanghai Tang, was a Chinese celebrity who lived in the UK for a long time.
“I remind myself of my heritage by wearing traditional Chinese clothing. Too many Chinese people study aboard in the West and then return to China in western style suits. To be honest, I think it is ridiculous for a Chinese person to walk around in a terrible suit! You may think I'm extreme, but deep down I'm Chinese, apart from my clubs, cigar shops, and foreign friends in London. Personally, the feeling of searching for the roots of my culture is so wonderful, it is all intuitive.” — Sir David Tang
