HP's line of fashion-oriented notebooks, designed by Chinese-born, American-based fashion designer Vivienne Tam, are being marketed globally around the world, including China.

The team at HP is surely buoyed by news that the government of China will delay the order to PC makers to install Web-filtering software called Green Dam.

We assume that Tam is also pleased by today's news.  But, the final decision by China on Web filtering software is not yet clear.

HP is the biggest computer seller in China.

Last month at the Wall Street Journal's D: All Things Digital conference, I interviewed HP's marketing Sr VP Satjiv Chahil about the Vivienne Tam line, which was introduced at last year's Fashion Week in New York.

Satjiv knows a thing or two about fashion and consumer electronics, having created successful marketing programs with Palm and Claudia Schiffer some years back.
