The Golden Days of Au­tumn

Vision Magazine - - 卷 首 語 - Yan Xia Ed­i­tor-in-chief

Af­ter a pleas­antly long sum­mer, the winds have fi­nally cooled, leaves crunch be­neath our feet, and the city is once again adorned in sheets of red and gold. Au­tumn in Aus­tralia gen­er­ates in­creas­ing tourism each year; par­tic­u­larly now, as Chi­nese peo­ple be­come the most wel­comed guests at the cen­tre of our main­stream so­ci­ety.

China’s lead­ing e-com­merce gi­ant Jd.com of­fi­cially opens in Mel­bourne, hop­ing to seal the gap be­tween Asia and Ocea­nia; a glam­orous red car­pet un­rolls at The Star Syd­ney, wel­com­ing China’s top movie stars for the In­ter­na­tional Chi­nese Film Fes­ti­val Awards Cer­e­mony; and Chi­nese su­per­model Lü Yan launches her own la­bel at Syd­ney’s Par­lour X bou­tique fash­ion store. This year’s big­gest fash­ion fes­ti­val across Aus­tralia (VMAFF) is also tai­lored to suit the tastes of Chi­nese peo­ple, re­veal­ing a con­tem­po­rary Aus­tralian so­ci­ety that has adapted around its ever-grow­ing Chi­nese pop­u­la­tion.

Vi­sion's editorial team ex­plores fash­ion and life­style trends in depth. We ex­tract the most tra­di­tional cul­ture therein, and de­liver this to our Aus­tralian and Chi­nese read­ers with sin­cer­ity. We serve as an eye­opener into main­stream cul­ture and si­mul­ta­ne­ously of­fer a bridge be­tween our two read­er­ship bases, us­ing qual­ity bilin­gual con­tent.

Tourism is al­ways the most visually ap­peal­ing sec­tion of this magazine. Here, you can travel from the midst of China’s win­ter, where plum blos­soms per­se­vere tri­umphantly through the cold; to the geo­ther­mal won­der­land of New Zealand, a unique ter­race that cap­ti­vates beauty be­yond imag­i­na­tion; and along the shores of Aus­tralia, abun­dant in dol­phins, in which a beach stroll be­comes a walk in the desert dunes…

Mean­while, world fa­mous con­duc­tor Riccardo Muti tours Syd­ney and Mel­bourne with the Aus­tralian mu­sic dream, AWO; and the new Sof­i­tel Dar­ling Har­bour opens its doors to ever-grow­ing Chi­nese tourism while pre­serv­ing pre­cious me­mories of his­toric Aus­tralia.

The golden days of au­tumn will only last so long. In this lat­est is­sue of Vi­sion, be in­spired to seek, ex­plore and learn in new ad­ven­tures. Vi­sion will con­tinue to in­te­grate into ev­ery beat of the rapidly evolv­ing so­cial rhythm. 夏言
