Fashion for Sale at Dongmen in Shenzhen

Earlier I shared some photos of outdoor scenes at Shenzhen's Dongmen shopping area. In this post I will share some scenes from several clothing or fashion accessory stores at Dongmen. Other than one shop, they are all targeting female shoppers.

Like my experience with "Lady Gage style" shopping in Liuzhou and another experience with shopping in Handan, Hebei province, I learned a bit more about China. There is more I could say about the sometimes maze-like paths through the thousands of shops at Dongmen, the organization of items beings sold, and the immense variety of options -- in terms of style, quality, and cost. For now I will simply suggest that understanding shopping environments & culture in the "real world" has the potential to inspire and guide design for online experiences. I will save other thoughts for a later post which will highlight similar shopping environments in other regions across China.

And now, more snapshots of Dongmen:
