More than 100 foreign fashion models from 20 diffrent countries have flocked to Zhejiang Province, where they earn about 2,000 RMB per day, sometimes even per hour.
Pat Lisa, a contract fashion model from Slovakia, has been attracted by the booming wool market in Zhejiang. She has stayed in the province for two years, making a daily income of approximately 2,000 RMB.
As Zhejiang’s garment market grows, so does the demand for foreign fashion models to appear in photos for Taobao.
Attractive though the pay seems, Pat suffers from fatigue due to cultural shock, diet, work stress and fast pace of life.
