Debating an eye feast? LOL

Photos from sina.com

The China Swimwear Design Contest Final was hosted at the 'Water Cube' sometime last week. I happened to watch the fashion show on TV (live? no sure). But, unfortunately I missed the first half of the show, in which the Chinese National Flag Bikinis were featured. Not being a fashion conscious guy, I still enjoyed the show. You know, beautiful and willowy models! A feast to the eyes! However, before I came across the report here (in Chinese), I was not aware of the debate whether using Chinese national flag design of bikinis is a disrespect to the flag. Some fellow blogger has translated the report into English here.

Honestly, I didn't expect this national flag design could trigger a debate. Anyway, I am amused. What to debate for? Maybe some Chinese netizens have got too much time to spend on the internet? Why not just feast your eyes on those beauties and come up with something more meaningful? Actually, I'm a bit suspicious of the truth of the report. Because I haven't seen such debate of the topic on a number of popular online Chinese forums. On second thought, maybe the report was cooked up by some crappy journalist? Easy job, em?

The idea of printing the pattern of national flag on the bikini is interesting and acceptable, but the bikini design is simply not that great, leaving me doubt the designer's taste. He/she should have come up with a better and more decent design! PS: I am a fan of fashion and love TV shows like "Project Runway"

@Ramesh - I should have stolen some photos from that blog. Ha, ha ...

@Ira - I like 'Project Runaway' too. An very interesting program!

Hi Hang .. Something like this would have created a furore in India. In my opinions flags of a country are sacred and shouldnt be used as materials of clothing. I am not fanatical about it though, it depends upon the person concerned.

Hi thethoughtfultrain, you're right. Ultimately, it depends upon the person concerned.
