Founder Facts:

 

Sinologist Elsbeth van Paridon (University of Leiden, Netherlands) is a run-of-the-mill fashion|underground culture aficionada.

Moving from Beijing (2010-2016) to crawling and clawing her way through the throes and woes of the dragon that is the study of Journalism (2016-2018), and taking a New York detour (2018-2019), she (as of 2020) today once again saunters through the streets of China, from Shanghai to Da Jing. Back to the source.

‘Tis in such fashion that van Paridon has now turned her groupie-esque lust for China Fashion, Lifestyle and Underground into a full-time occupation as editor-in-chief of The China Temper — scroll down for more. Available in both English and 中文。

Van Paridon has reported on a variety of China Fashion&Urban Lifestyle related topics for several publications, including the likes of What’s On Weibo, SIX Magazine, Global Times, Global Health Magazine, The Beijinger, UK YAHOO! Style and China International Publishing Group.

In a bid to expand her professional portfolio and learn a thing or two from the big Mickeys in the game, Van Paridon has contributed to a variety of China News buddies, including RADII ChinaSupChina, and WeAR Magazine.

As of 2021, Van Paridon is active at Beijing Review (the English print edition courtesy of China International Publishing Group) as an editorial consultant — writing, filming and editing.

The quest for more off-the-grid intel never ends.
