Pieces of China: Yue-Sai Kan on the Lipstick that Changed China

September 10, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 1:15 pm

| Free

Pieces of China is an online series that tells the story of China, one object at a time.

The year was 1992, and Deng Xiaoping had just urged the Chinese to go out and get rich. Blue and green Mao suits were still common, and the streets bristled with bicycles. Yue-Sai Kan — already known for the hugely popular “One World” TV show that gave many Chinese their first glimpse of the outside world — launched China’s first cosmetics brand. On September 10, Yue-Sai, who People magazine once called “the most famous woman in China,” joins us to talk about women in China and the moment when they were once again allowed to feel beautiful.

This episode has been generously sponsored by Dan YUAN 苑丹.

Explore the full roster of guests in our Pieces of China series of free, online conversations.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department Of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
