Fit for the Queen
The Glow Velvet Top Lot that was sold during Kopenhagen Fur's September auction went to an old friend of the auction house. Mr Lie Yan Jie purchased the Top Lot for 700 DKK per skin.
The purchase was his first Top Lot at Kopenhagen Fur in his 10 years as a customer at the house.
- I feel very honoured to be able to purchase the lot. I have something very special in mind for the skins. I would very much like to make a fur coat for the Queen of Denmark. In fact, I have rented an apartment overlooking Amalienborg, the Queens residence, says Mr Lie Yan Jie.
- With this purchase, I would like to emphasize the friendship and understanding between Denmark and China. Second, it will symbolize the prosperity of the fur trade. Thirdly, for me this is an expression of my gratitude towards Kopenhagen Fur for supplying the finest fur skins in the world, he says.
His company and brand name, Lei Shi Da, is well known in China. It has been growing steadily for the last 14 years and it is represented in over 20 major stores in China. His flagship stores are located in two major fur centres in China, Harbin and his hometown Xinji.
