According to MSN, Tan Lili, 28, is a farmer in a village in Lungan, Gansu Province, China. She has never learned anything about fashion design. At the age of 18, Tan immediately started working in the field.
At the age of 22 (2012) Tan married and later had a son. Tan and his wife recently had to buy many building materials, including cement bags.
Last Wednesday it rained all day, Tan could not come out. She suddenly came up with the idea of using cement bags to make the wedding dress look like the dress she had seen in the magazine.
