Chinese clothing shop owner Liu Xianping was being aided by her 72 year old grandfather when she was putting together her collection for the upcoming season. He started giving styling advice and one thing led to another and he ended starring as the model for her website. He works those looks. The story went viral internationally and sales of her shop, Yuekou increased by 5 times.
