Jiang Desen, who has lived in Beijing for 19 years, is the boss of a creative T-shirt shop named Plastered 8 located in a hutong in Beijing. Jiang said he likes collections and he uses elements like old subway tickets or food coupons in his design to represent the old Beijing.

Jiang loves Beijing. For a four-child father, Beijing means a family.

He said it is interesting to communicate with the local people once he masters the Chinese language. “You can understand the history and the culture in this city, and fall in love with Beijing”, Jiang added.
