Poster of Reflection of Time Art of Fashion in China 1993-2012

Reflection of Time: Art of Fashion in China 1993-2012 is dedicated to showcasing the overall development of Chinese fashion design and the creative concepts. Works in this show originate from Chinese cultural tradition and relate closely to contemporary context to demonstrate the connection between Chinese fashion design and the time we are in, as well as its independent quality in the context of globalization.

As the world is drastically globalizing, the forming of a local creative feature, the retaining and promoting of local culture in international context has become a central issue in modern designing scene. China’s modern fashion design has grown up from a phase of learning, assimilating and copying into a mature phase of fusing, reflecting and creation. The exhibition inspires us to review the path of growth of Chinese fashion design from the early exploration and seeking of self to the new voice in a world stage. Here you will experience a summary of important changes and developments of Chinese fashion design in the past 20 years from 1993 up to the present day.
