A word from the wise...

As per the ancient Chinese saying: "the first bird who stands out will get shot!", and this explains a multitude of their fashion sins! In the 60’s everyone followed the standard dress in a Zhongshan suit (or a Mao suit as it is better known in the West) in blue, grey or black. Post Mao and The Gang of Four there was a relaxation in dress; people had the freedom to wear colour, pattern, to copy movie stars and to dress however they pleased. For many, clothing has become a subconscious form of expressing their freedom away from harsh party lines; an explanation of the appliqué pearls and multicoloured lamé that I am quite satisfied with.
