Contemporary Fashion Designers’ Archive

image

Exactly one year ago, Christine Tsui initiated the project Contemporary Fashion Designers’ Archive as part of her PhD program at The University of Hong Kong. Miss Tsui, along with her four research assistants, has been collecting news reports, videos, audio tapes and pictures of eight contemporary Chinese designers, including Dooling Jiang, Ji Ji, Jin Taijun, Liangzi, Ma Ke, Wang Xinyuan, Wu Haiyan, and Zhang Da. Today, on behalf of The University of Hong Kong, the team proudly presents the website FASHION ARCHIVE as the outcome of this project. The website is currently under public testing and will be officially launched in late January 2014.

FASHION ARCHIVE is a non-profit, academic website that aims to promote knowledge of contemporary Chinese fashion designers and their design works worldwide, for use by international designers, journalists, students and academics interested in understanding the evolution of China’s contemporary fashion scene.
