Fashion in Multiple Chinas: Chinese Styles in the Transglobal Landscape Book Launch (17/05/2018)

This talk introduces the volume Fashion in Multiple Chinas: Chinese Styles in the Transglobal Landscape (London: IB Tauris). Much has been written about the transformation of China from being a clothing-manufacturing site to a fast-rate fashion consuming society. Less, however, has been on the process of making Chinese fashion. Fashion in Multiple Chinas explores how the many Chinese fashions operate across the widespread, fragmented and diffused, Chinese diaspora. It confronts the idea of Chinese nationalism as ‘one nation’, as well as of China as a single reality, in revealing the realities of Chinese fashion as diverse and comprising multiple practices. Demonstrated within is how the making of Chinese fashion is composed of numerous layers, often involving a web of global entanglements between manufacturing and circulation, retailing and branding.

Dr Wessie Ling, co-editor of Fashion in Multiple Chinas, will present the framework of studying Chinese fashion in the transglobal landscape and discuss some of the covered topics such as the mechanics of the PRC fashion industry, the creative economy of Chinese fashion, its retail and branding, and the cultural identity of Chinese fashion from the diasporas, such as Hong Kong.

The talk will be conducted in English
