About the Authors
  • Chinese clothing has undergone continuous transformations throughout history, providing a reflection of the culture in place at any given time. A wealth of archaeological findings coupled with ancient mythology, poetry and songs enable us to see the development of distinctive Chinese fashions through the ages. This illustrated introductory survey takes the reader through traditional Chinese clothing, ornamentation and ceremonial wear, discusses the importance of silk and the diverse costumes of China's ethnic groups before considering modern trends and China's place in the fashion world today.

    • A comprehensive introduction to the diverse and distinctive history of Chinese clothing
    • Written by a leading Chinese expert whose work is not widely available outside of China
    • Full colour illustrations support the discussion throughout
