Fashion in Shanghai : the designers of a new economy of style

Lindgren, Timothy T. (2014) Fashion in Shanghai : the designers of a new economy of style. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a study of Chinese fashion designers in Shanghai. It shows fashion designers are building businesses, forging their professional reputations and developing a design aesthetic. Some designers are extremely successful in applying some elements of Chinese philosophy to their work, such as Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism. In doing so, they challenge the dominance of the European fashion system with a new global fashion system.
