Bon vivant – raconteur – taipan – entrepreneur – philanthropist – loyal friend to many and great all round guy. Self confident but at the same time self deprecating a one off with a wicked sense of humor and dress sense of a Chinese emperor. I lived in Hong Kong from late 1995 to 2012 and saw first hand how unique and talented Sir David Tang was in everything to do with life and business. I remember going back to around year 2000 a big event for all the world, only to read days later that Sir David Tang never used emails to keep in touch with friends and people in business. This guy was totally switched on but he respected and conducted life the Chinese way face to face with spades of front, lashed with the essential “Guanxi” factor…

In those days he was running the hugely successful fashion brand Shanghai Tang which was the go to place who wanted the very best – unique – exquisite oriental fashion. Nobody did it better than Shanghai Tang his outlets sizzled with intrigue – style and oozed class. Just like the man himself, Sir David Tang was one classy guy oozing panache on one side, flip him over and he was all grace and humility. Always wanting to give in belief that the more one can give in life, there is always a chance that such a person is never looking for thanks, as all that mattered was that a new acquaintance may blossom into a lifelong friendship…

A very special human being who did it his way – the proper Chinese way this guy was gilded in class – style and “Guanxi”!

To Sir David Tang 1954 – 2017 respect you will be missed!
