Photos of a vegetable hawker in his 60s donning an eccentric handmade outfit while carrying his vegetables on the way to a market in Shaoyang city, Hunan Province have recently gone viral, according to Sina News.
The hawker, surnamed Chen, said he’s grown and sold vegetables for 10 years, while focusing on clothing design on the side. He loves trying on his own fashion creations and occasionally posing for his neighbors.
Chen sells his vegetables every other day. The veggies are often snatched up while he is still on the way to the market, as he doesn’t spray agricultural chemicals upon his plants.
Chen told reporters that he wanted to hold a fashion show with a catwalk at the local Chengnan Park. To save up for his dream show, he says he’s been depositing small amounts of money in the bank every month for quite a while.
