They’ve become international sensations by modeling their customers’ trendy lost items
Chang Wan-ji and Hsu Sho-er have been married for 61 years. They have four children and six grandchildren, and they’re proprietors of a beloved laundromat and dry-cleaning service called Wansho Laundry that has been operating in central Taiwan since 1950, when Chang Wan-ji worked there as a teenager. They’re well-known to their loyal customers, many of whom make an effort to give them business even when they move downtown, but recently they’ve become internationally famous for the utterly delightful photos their grandson takes of them looking trendy and sharp in their customers’ forgotten laundry.
The idea came about when their 31-year-old grandson Reef Chang was looking for ways to keep them happy and entertained after their business slowed during the pandemic and hundreds of uncollected items began to accumulate in their shop. And it didn’t take long before their playful attitudes, their cool poses, and the sheer joy on their faces as they modeled the trendy clothes they’d collected became a sensation.
Here are a few of their incredibly stylish looks, and you can find more by following them on their Instagram.
