Game Changers


Though she’s nominally based in Shanghai, fashion figure Leaf Greener is far too busy circumnavigating the globe to spend much time at home. Greener’s frenetic output is epitomized by her time editing Elle China, which began to publish two issues every week due to overwhelming demand. But that wasn’t fast enough, so she established one of the world’s mobile-only publications, distributed to WeChat’s 500 million Chinese users.


So it’s perhaps not a surprise that traveling actually gives Greener the opportunity to slow down and take it all in. We asked her for some of her favorite things to do, no matter what city she’s visiting.

Going to my favorite local restaurants. You learn a lot about each city from the way chefs cook and serve food. Even the style of decor reflects so much about each city. Food is the soul of the people and it will teach you everything you need to learn about a place.
Visiting art museums or galleries. Aesthetic education is really important for me.
Meeting up with friends, no matter what my friends do and where they live. After all, friendship always matters.
Shopping at local food markets or supermarkets. I love to see how local people live. Supermarkets and food markets reflect their daily life. I like to observe people’s lives through their basic needs.
Visiting churches, especially historical ones. Looking at human history and how it was developing through those churches is fascinating.
