"Through the medium of dress, Evolution & Revolution: Chinese Dress 1700s-1990s explores the dramatic cultural, social, economic and political changes which have occurred in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan over three centuries. This history is revealed through the luxurious court robes of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911); the tight-fitting, side-slitted East-West cheungsam; the ubiquitous Mao suit, symbol of Communist ideology; and the bold new directions of contemporary designers. Written by authors from Australia, mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan and rich with visual material, this unique book offers an accessible, informative and inspiring treatment of Chinese history, culture and dress. Published in conjunction with the exhibition Evolution & Revolution: Chinese Dress 1700s to now at the Powerhouse Museum July 1997 - May 1998." Publisher's description.
