ARTIST RESIDENCY CHINA — BEIJING, no. 23
China has had a developing market economy since reforms led by Deng Xiaoping in 1978 following the death of Mao Zedong in 1976. There is a wide variety of individual color and style in women’s fashion. Clothing is plentiful and inexpensive. There are several trends in the city. Formal occasion dresses show up at all times of day in unlikely public places, made with sheer white flowing and layered translucent fabric. Tall soled modified sneakers and high heels are worn while sight-seeing or bicycling. Umbrellas and hats that are big or practical are popular for sun protection. Frequently seen are black and white, hot pink, stripes, polka dots, and English language graphics. The days of comrades wearing dull colored formless jackets and pants are long gone.
