Artist starts business: Show Luo opens fashion store, heading for international market

"Xiao Zhu" Show Luo is always a happy character, full of life and presenting a happy face for others. In recent years, he has worked his interests and hobbies into his own fashion line --STAGE, which sells clothing, hats, jeans, and accessories. Within 3 years, STAGE has already become a favoured store in Bei Gao, and has expanded into Xiang Jiang and Singapore, with plans to further develop in Mainland China, USA, Europe, and Japan.

STAGE is actually a manifestation of Show's outgoing character, the concept being "SHOW-Stage hyaline of world." Therefore, no matter how busy or tired he gets, he will push to achieve his dream of having locations all over the world.

With $3 million invested in STAGE, since it's opening in 2007 Show has been deeply involved in all aspects of the business, and still personally makes rounds at his store today, calls to ask about the number of customers, and watches security videos to ensure great service is provided when he is out of the country.

Show describes the hardest part of running STAGE as time management. He has to MC, hold out of country concerts, record commercials, and attend promotional events, so he only has the early morning hours to meet with shareholders and visit the store. Usually, his meetings run until 3 to 4 am, and he often has to work early in the morning, sacrificing valuable sleeping time. However, Show doesn't have regrets; he loves his job, and remains optimistic and happy.

Xiao Zhu's path has not always been smooth sailing; he had to go to court with his past manager Kevin Sun, and during those years battling in court, he was very hurt, but remained optimistic about humanity.

Being very humorous, he has been dubbed a comedian at heart, but his acting skills are also evident, as he has been nominated for the "Golden Bell Best Male Lead" award. Show has also worked hard on his dancing skills, finally holding a world tour, and garnering the title "Dancing King". Last year, his father passed away, his internet pal was exposed as a "lovefraud", leaving a trail of pain. But, the outgoing artist was not knocked down, and has only increased his interest towards charity work; just yesterday, he lead a blind person during a commercial filming.

Xiao Zhu's evident drive is not uncorrelated with his new store, and he constantly reminds himself to "Concentrate on work, or else be eliminated." Due to people criticizing his store being based on an original concept, but eventually becoming "just a fan hangout", Xiao Zhu was very upset, and spent a lot of time reworking new ideas, sketching every idea out. When he sees many people wearing his designs in the streets, he is rewarded by unbound happiness.

However, when he sees that his designs did not come out as expected, he will get rid of the whole design, saying "I cannot allow customers to buy half-made designs, or defective accessories, right", leading him to choose materials himself, and setting high criteria for each and every product. There is only one goal, which is that more and more people will accept and love his fashion line.

As a result of his hard work, he is rewarded with results and with many overseas orders. His Taipei location had a record of 600 customers in line, and with business breaking the million dollar mark, as the owner, he is not mean nor stingy, rewarding his employers last year generously with a cruise ship trip out of the country.
Having created such a magnificent front, not only is Disney willing to sell its licensed products in STAGE, after Show has had some time to reel back from the success, he is planning to open a restaurant related to eggs, since he is a huge egg lover, sometime within the year.

Xiao Zhu's STAGE is captivating, with new and innovative products, and his own collection of shoes is also mind boggling--his most expensive pair is worth $220,000, and many overseas fans from Japan and Mainland China have come just to visit his shop.

EJ's Note:
Show's father passed away in 2005, not "last year" like the article (translation) said.

His father passed away in 2005. Not too sure if it's the article or the translator that made the mistake (too lazy to check, hehe). But we all know it's 2005. Smile I'll add that to the first post just so no ones gets confused. Thanks for pointing it out, freya.

Earlier, there were news about Show planning on having STAGE in NYC. It's just in the planning mode right now. But hopefully in addition to NYC, STAGE will come over to the West coast as well. Though, it kind of is already as STAGE clothing is available in Vancouver, even though it's not STAGE's own store.

good luck to show if he'll be opening more branches of STAGE.
i hope he'll take care of his health, coz opening STAGE in tw, sg, etc already kept him awake till morning. then opening more would require more thinking & decisions too. XD though i also cant wait for him to open in our country. i hope that time i already graduated & work for him. Hahahah. lmaoo.

and about a resto, i also love eggs! i can tolerate not having a STAGE clothes for a while, but not being able to eat on is very own resto, i cant!
