Irish author launches Chinese fashion book
Fashion industry booming in China
Author Gemma Williams: “The Chinese fashion industry is incredibly complex and layered, even though it is relatively new.”
Fashion is booming in China now and is an area that offers opportunities for Irish designers. Ahead of the 2015 Year of Irish Design, Paul Costelloe presented his spring-summer collection at an event in the Irish Embassy in Beijing, hosted by ambassador Paul Kavanagh and his wife Rosemary Kavanagh.
“The Chinese fashion industry is incredibly complex and layered, even though it is relatively new,” Williams says, “so I have heard that perhaps one solution was seeing it through a different perspective to try and simplify it. The book offers the world a snapshot of what is happening currently in the industry.
“To be honest, I think there are opportunities for everyone in China, you just need to be brave enough to try it.”
