Beijing is important. So important that Lamborghini announced its new SUV sports car (weird idea, I know). This is my first Beijing Auto Show, being a veteran of many Australian international motor shows. This was bigger, better and way more brash. My favorite designer had his own stand.
Looking at the press reports, I went in with the expectation that the gender roles would be very marked, but they were not. There were not as many male models as female, but there was a surprising number of female sales staff. I wandered the show for 3 hours, and I think I saw most of it. Though once I got to the exotica, it was increasingly hard to get close.
You may be looking at my photographs and thinking, "I photographed them, too," and you most likely did. We all photographed the same things on the same days. I do expect you came back with less pictures of men and more of cars than I did.
