Anyway, it seems this poor excuse for a channel that proports to providing
I noticed in Saigon that when I walked into a number of bars, the Fashion channel was playing on a TV in the corner. Initially I just put it down to an unfortunate channel-selection accident, but it soon became evident that people were watching this by choice.
Thankfully the Chinese government had enough sense to prevent this dangerous tool of capitalism from infecting any of the TVs I saw in China, but here I am sitting in a restaurant in Mongolia with that stupid diamond-F station logo on a TV on the wall. The strange thing is, I look out the window and watch regular Mongolian women walking along the street sporting far better fashion than the women on Fashion TV, and most of the women in Australia too for that matter. And what's more, women in real life are allowed to smile.
Update: I'm currently sitting in a restaurant in Irutsk (Eastern Siberia) and Fashion TV is on not one but two big screens on the wall. I swear it's trying to take over the world, Zoolander style.
