520    Like its economy and art scene, Chinese fashion is on the 
       rise, with an increasingly prominent international 
       presence. Spurred by a new generation of creative and 
       ambitious designers, and championed by actresses like Fan 
       Bingbing and Zhang Ziyi, as well as China s First Lady, 
       Peng Liyuan, Chinese fashion now walks the runways, not 
       only in Shanghai and Beijing but also in London, Paris, 
       Tokyo, and New York. Fashion China is an important new 
       survey of the top Chinese fashion designers working today,
       selected for the book by a jury of experts on Chinese 
       fashion that includes supermodel Liu Wen; Director of 
       Harper s Bazaar China, Lucia Liu; and TV host and fashion 
       writer Hung Huang. Profiles of each designer include a 
       description of their styles and an interview with Gemma 
       Williams, exploring their training, inspiration, and 
       technical approaches. These are accompanied by 450 
       illustrations offering a rich survey of the looks that 
       make Chinese fashion unique. From the opulent couture of 
       Guo Pei to the minimalist ready-to-wear of Uma Wang and 
       the surreal structuralism of Xiao Li, the designers 
       featured here offer an unexpected and enticing combination
       of tradition and modernity, of Asian heritage and Western
