With a plastic bag to do evening dress, take the air conditioning as the satchel, when the music arises, Luxianren's eyes immediately become stern, and the whole person projects a high-wattage aura.
This "village supermodel" comes from Ningheng County, Guangxi Province, China. He has a resting bitch face with long eyebrows, sharp angles, which is a standard model's face.
Luxianren became an overnight sensation with a series of short videos in which he was wearing a homemade "haute couture." Even the famous Chinese male model Jin Dachuan praised him for his creativity.
Born in 1999, Lu doesn't like playing games like his peers. He spends most of his time either watching fashion shows or thinking about creating new videos. To make clothes with a sense of design, he studies almost all the videos of the Victoria's Secret Show. "Even though I don’t have professional training, I take every detail of the design seriously," says Lu.
Netizens comment on Luxianren, "He uses a pair of hands to turn stone into gold by touching, with his turn-the-dust-into-glory creativity to make rags into a look that no one can afford. Each set of costumes has a soul."
Lu asserts himself as a "village model." Apart from using various obscure materials to create "high-end fashion," he also takes great care in selecting venues. The mountain path or abandoned school can be the stage for his fashion show. Lu explains, "I am just trying to get closer to my dream, and wherever there is a dream, there is a stage."
After becoming an influencer, Lu has been invited to various commercial events. You can find him on the cover of numerous fashion magazines and on the runway shows. He has also appeared with multiple celebrities such as Zhou Dongyu, Ouyang Nana, and Li Jiaqi, and walked the runway with professional models without being overshadowed.
