Chapter 836: No Need to Trouble Miss Yu
She was standing in front of the floor-to-ceiling window as she talked to a young man.
Because her back was facing him, she did not see Shen Li and the others coming over.
The young man looked regretful.
“If that’s the case… then it’s a real pity…”
Yu Yu smiled and said, “I’m very grateful for Velar’s invitation, but it was only after much difficulty that I even managed to squeeze some time to attend this year’s fashion week. I’m really sorry that I can’t be in two places at once.”
The young man quickly said, “You don’t have to apologize! We understand! After all, you’re the first independent designer to have received the certification from Bai City Fashion Association. You’ve been invited to participate in the Bai City Fashion Week for three consecutive years. We know that your time is precious. Even if you can’t make it this time, we hope that we might have another chance in the future.”
Velar was a foreign-owned second-tier luxury brand.
This young man was a staff member at Velar’s headquarters in the Capital. He would also be taking this flight to Bai City today.
They had previously sent an invitation to Yu Yu, but she had sent back a polite rejection.
He had unexpectedly bumped into Yu Yu here today. He had approached her with the thought of trying again.
Unfortunately, he had still received a rejection as an answer.
However, this was understandable.
Yu Yu’s status within the fashion industry was very high.
Other than holding an important position in the Yu Media Group, she was also a very talented fashion designer.
With these two identities stacked together, one could imagine how difficult it was for them to get her to accept their invitations.
During the past few fashion weeks, she had basically only attended the shows of first-rate international brands. She had attended very few second-rate ones.
Yu Yu smiled and nodded.
“Thank you for your understanding.”
The young man was about to say something when he suddenly froze.
Sensing something, Yu Yu turned around.
The first person she saw was Shen Li. She was momentarily surprised before she noticed Lu Huaiyu standing beside Shen Li.
Her eyes flashed as a thought quickly came to her mind.
That’s right, only two designers from the Chinese district had been invited to Bai City Fashion Week. One of them was her while the other was Ning.
In other words, Shen Li.
It was not unusual for Shen Li to be heading to the same place, but unexpectedly, she had also chosen the same flight today.
Apart from that, what surprised Yu Yu more was that Lu Huaiyu had also come.
It was obvious that he had come to accompany Shen Li.
Yu Yu pursed her lips.
In the past, every time she had held a show, she would send an invitation to Lu Huaiyu, but he had never come before.
As for Shen Li…
However, as these thoughts flashed past in her mind. Yu Yu’s expression did not change at all.
She greeted him with a smile and a familiar tone of voice.
“Second Master Lu, Miss Shen. I didn’t expect that we would be on the same flight.”
Suddenly thinking of something, she turned around to look at the young man.
“Oh yes, Velar must have sent Miss Shen an invitation as well, right?”
The young man was still looking at Shen Li.
This was the first time he had seen Ning in person, and his eyes were filled with excitement.
Only when he understood what Yu Yu had just said did he come back to reality.
Subconsciously, he snuck a quick glance at Shen Li again before lowering his voice.
Yu Yu looked surprised.
“You didn’t invite her?”
The young man nodded awkwardly.
He really did not want to talk about this in front of Ning…
Yu Yu paused for a moment and smiled.
“This will be the first time Miss Shen will be going to Bai City Fashion Week. Her schedule shouldn’t be too full. Why didn’t you invite her?”
The young man wanted to say something but hesitated.
Yu Yu’s gaze swept over Shen Li and him. She smiled.
“Since we all just happened to bump into each other here, it can be considered fate. This is a rare opportunity. You have to seize it.”
It sounded as if she was encouraging the young man to invite Shen Li on behalf of Velar.
“This… This isn’t appropriate…”
The young man stammered,”I don’t have the authority…”
Yu Yu looked apologetic.
“Look at me, I forgot about this. But it’s alright, I’ll just give her my invitation. When we reach Bai City, I’ll personally inform your manager about this.”
Yu Yu had thought that the young man would be happy about this, but he was not.
His expression became more complicated, as if he wanted to say something, but he did not know how to.
With a gentle tone of voice, she asked with a faint smile, “What’s wrong? Is there a problem? Surely I’m able to transfer this invitation, right?”
Every year, the Bai City Fashion Week attracted countless people.
All kinds of socialites, celebrities, fashion buyers, fashion editors, designers, and so on would use this invitation card as a symbol of their status.
A small portion of the invitations had a certain amount of leeway.
They could be transferred or sold.
With her status in the fashion industry, she could do that and no one could say anything about it.
The young man finally spoke up.
“Miss Yu, it’s not that I don’t want to invite Ning, but… this was never our plan in the first place. Even if our manager was here, he probably wouldn’t…”
Yu Yu frowned.
“Why is that? After all, Miss Shen has officially been invited to fashion week this time too.”
The young man hesitated for a while before saying, “But… But Ning is going as a co-designer with G&S this time…”
Yu Yu was stunned.
Then, she heard the young man say in a low voice, “…how can we invite someone like this?”
G&S was the largest luxury brand group in the world, and it was also a super-first-rate brand.
Shen Li was deeply bound to G&S. Although they had a collaborative relationship instead of one as an employer and employee, currently, she basically represented G&S.
Velar was only a second-tier brand, there was a huge gap between them and G&S.
Shen Li already had the backing of G&S, why would she still take a liking to a brand like theirs?
They had recognized this early on, so they had not sent her an invitation from the start.
He did not say what he meant explicitly, but Yu Yu understood.
Her expression immediately stiffened.
The young man looked towards Shen Li and let out a bitter laugh.
“Moreover, Ning is personally being accompanied by the Crown Prince of G&S. It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to suddenly go over now.”
Yu Yu’s heart skipped a beat. Only then did she see the other people who were walking behind her.
The person in front was tall and straight. He had chiseled facial features and sky-blue eyes that looked exceptionally gentle and affectionate.
If it was not George, who else could it be?
She also knew the two people behind him. They were G&S executives from the branch in the Capital.
Yu Yu’s hands slowly tightened.
Why were there so many people accompanying Shen Li to Bai City?
Furthermore, all of their statuses were extraordinary!
Velar had invited her several times before. However, when this young man said that they had not extended an invitation to Shen Li, she had thought…
In the end, the only reason they had made this decision was because they felt that they were not worthy?!
George smiled as he looked over at them.
“Hey, what are you talking about? Ning, are you lacking an invitation? Why didn’t you tell me? I’ll just get it for you!”
G&S held an extremely high position within the Bai City Fashion Association.
To George, this was indeed a small matter.
Yu Yu’s expression was extremely stiff.
Shen Li looked at her and calmly said, “Thank you for your kind intentions, Miss Yu. However, I’ll be rather busy in Bai City this time, so I won’t trouble you to help me arrange my schedule.”
