Siz­zling sin­gles

Thailand Tatler - - AROUND ASIA -

ON POINT

On the cover is dancer Fang-Yi Sheu. A na­tive of Tai­wan who lives in New York, Sheu was the prin­ci­pal dancer of the Martha Gra­ham Dance Com­pany. She talks about her life and ca­reer. Else­where, an art fea­ture pro­files three Tai­wanese artists par­tic­i­pat­ing in this year’s Venice Bi­en­nale, in­clud­ing KuangYu Lee (pic­tured), who will be rep­re­sent­ing the tiny Repub­lic of San Marino.

ART MAT­TERS

Na­tional trea­sure Lea Sa­longa graces the cover of the Art Is­sue. The singer and ac­tor re­flects on her role as an artist and stay­ing rel­e­vant. A re­port on Bal­let Philip­pines finds the per­son­al­i­ties at the helm are push­ing cre­ative bound­aries in the run-up to the new dance sea­son. And cu­ra­tors of six of the coun­try’s most im­por­tant gal­leries and auc­tion houses re­trace their jour­neys and share their thoughts on the art scene. hangliu Tatler brings to­gether 12 so­cial dar­lings—or “star­lings,” as it de­scribes them—from dif­fer­ent parts of Main­land China for an is­sue packed with fash­ion, beauty and words of wis­dom. The girls, all lively sin­gle­tons, are Chen Jiang, Car­rie Wang, Danli Chen, Nasha Shi, Qian­qian Zou, Yichen Xie, Elly Lam (pic­tured), Chen Chen, Xi Gong, Ni Wang, Yu Lan and Xiyan Duan.

DIG­I­TAL AGE

On the cover is Talenia Phua Gajardo, the highly suc­cess­ful woman be­hind the Artling, an e-com­merce plat­form show­cas­ing works by more than 850 Asian artists across the world—and chang­ing the way we buy art. The is­sue also fo­cuses on tech, look­ing at key play­ers in Asia and ex­plor­ing the ways tech­nol­ogy is rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing char­ity work.

POWER COU­PLES SHINE BRIGHT

Jew­ellery de­signer Diana Zhang is this month’s cover star. The main­land-born busi­ness­woman, wife and mother, who was raised dur­ing some of China’s tough­est times cul­tur­ally and so­cially, dis­cusses her life and how she founded her ex­clu­sive jew­ellery brand. Else­where, in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed artist Christo talks about art, pol­i­tics and the mean­ing of his work, while lo­cal en­tre­pre­neur Roger Chan (pic­tured) dis­cusses lux­ury in a very candid pro­file. En­tre­pre­neur­ial cou­ple Fadza Anuar and Vivy Yu­sof dis­cuss their e-com­merce fash­ion pow­er­house, Fash­ion­Va­let, in­tro­duc­ing it to other South­east Asian mar­kets and ex­pand­ing into an offline re­tail busi­ness. Also fea­tured are the pair be­hind ice-cream chain Sangkaya, San­grida Kaya and John Isaac Ho (pic­tured), and three other fash­ion­able cou­ples, who re­veal their wardrobes and style mantras.
