There is no doubt in the minds of many that China will quickly emerge as a player in the fashion world. The economics of change in cities like Beijing and Shanghai are apparent to anyone who visits. My personal take from my Beijing visit is that their deep history and openness to Western thoughts on design will meld into something new and very special to the region.
Kiroic Footwear of Shanghai is an example of a new breed of Chinese footwear which makes clear its Western influences – from Gehry to Gaudi – and its love of the deconstructs movements. Their Autumn/Winter 2008 collection is available now.
