As a consequence of the economic changes produced by this revolution the generation born in the 1960s wore dresses handmade by their parents. This was the new style fashion generally adopted. To buy shirts it was necessary to obtain coupons for fabric. Good tailors, what is to ironically say "good fashion designers", were recognized by the ability to revamp old clothes, using the less of fabrics. There were no differences between adults and children costumes; the colors to use were primarily four: green, blue, grey and black. The major influence of clothing fashions was due to the films with images of soldiers in uniform, the olive green color was a favorite of young girls.

The Great Cultural Revolution was dedicated to put an end to old ideologies, customs, culture fashions, rejecting at the same time the bourgeois habits. People did not dare to dress traditional Chinese clothing or foreign style nor authentic or false jewels. The patriotic virtue was modesty. They didn't want to expose some sign of aspiring beauty or to highlight their personality. Sometimes agreeing, sometimes under a feeling of profound fear they knew that such attitude would give rise to controversy and problems. The obligatory attitude fashion was to be seen as an equal.

Once this Revolution passed the new styles in dressing and new fashion designs were the most sensible signals to expose the change that was occurring in China. The modern Chinese clothing fashion designs that have evolved are a fantastic mixture of its dramatic history.

During 1980s State leaders took the initiative in wearing costumes Western-style fashion in public. A "Fever for the Western suit" spread rapidly nationally. In the late 1980s, women began to accept short skirts and many girls tallied them combined with jersey in spring or autumn. Eventually to dress according to the current styles fashions was widely recognized and also fashion designers and fashion parades became an important part of the cultural life of the Chinese people. The presentation made by professional models gained more and more spectators day by day.

There was a hungry society changing their lifestyle fashions.

Today expert economists recognize that the economy of the People's Republic of China is the third largest in the world, after the United States and Japan. This progress has of course its influence in the way people in China live, including the choosing of clothing.

Today, fashion designers are able to use a mixture of traditional and modern ideas to their creations. These extraordinary new styles fashions also incorporate age-old motifs such as guardian deities, lions, and masks of Chinese opera characters. Chinese bronze is another source of printed, woven, embroidered, and applied design for clothes. Some of the distinctive fashion designs include dragons, phoenixes, clouds, and lightning.

Speaking about haute couture, in New York, Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, anywhere in the global village, when a fashion is established, it is reproduced all over the world. Now Chinese ideograms, calligraphy, dragons, Buddha images and all kinds of traditional symbols are used as stylistic elements by several famous fashion designers.

They give women in the whole world the opportunity of feeling comfortable, exotic, sophisticated, in harmony and beautiful, dressing fantastic Chinese garments.
