From the twilight of the dynastic era to increasing Western influences; through international and domestic conflict and the emergence of a new China after nearly a century of war, the history of garments, adornments, traditional social customs, and popular culture, have influenced clothing, textile design, and have changed the course of history for hundreds of millions of people. This unique, decade-by-decade appraisal of Chinese fashion is a must-have book for those interested in popular culture, the history of fashion, and world history.
