Keeping up with Gok Wan

March 07 2012

Gok Wan's Made in China - Tonight 8pm Channel 4

Get tuned in tonight at 8pm to see Gok Wan travel to his ancestral home to explore the largely unseen world of Chinese mass production for a new Channel 4 TV special ‘Made in China’.

Made in China may conjure up images of poor quality or cheap labour, but is that really the case? Gok believes it also represents ingenuity, cutting-edge manufacturing technology and the unparalleled work ethic of the Chinese nation – and he is setting out to prove it.

Gok goes to ‘Jeans Town’, ‘Bra Town’, the factory that makes London cabs, and ‘Thames Town’ - a perfect replica of an entire English market town. His journey ends in Shanghai where a stylist pushes the boundaries in fashion.

Gok has also been busy launching his latest collections for TU at Sainsbury’s and Simply Yours.

Gok Wan for TU at Sainsbury's New Collection

With Simply Yours, Gok has created a definitive collection of must have shapewear which he has called his ‘Wall of Fame’ collection as he has gone back to basics, looking at key shapes, styles and materials that are classic.

If you are after one of Spring/Summers hottest trends, the peplum dress - his new collection at Sainsbury’s has a great dress to suit you with prices ranging from just 20.00 to 45.00. The bold Patterns and 50’s style dress will be great to see you through the season.
