Mewlan Turaq (L) asks advice on a vintage coat at his shop in the ancient city of Kashgar, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, May 16, 2019. Mewlan Turaq, a 26-year-old young man grew up in Kashgar, has been obsessed with retro style clothing, as his mother is a local famous tailor. He is addicted to designing vintage clothing and jewelry and seeks design inspiration by consulting materials, asking mother and other craftsmen and visiting the Grand Bazaar. Due to the booming tourism of Kashgar, Turaq opened a cultural and creative shop in the ancient city in October 2018. He rent out his own designs and collections of retro clothing and ethnic jewelry to tourists and sold ethnic handicrafts and souvenirs. "I'm thinking about learning design, and creating more unique design in order to make more people appreciate the culture of Xinjiang," he said. (Xinhua/Ma Kai)
