Description

For decades people in China modelled themselves on Chairman Mao who wore a simple worker's outfit in blue or grey. To wear anything different meant that you stood out - and in China any sign of independent thought has always been dangerous. But China's door has opened and the next generation has emerged seeking an individual identity separate from the State. This is a fascinating documentary which charts the course of two Beijing fashion designers as they launch themselves on the Shanghai market. 'Mao's New Suit' follows Beijing fashion designers Sun Jian and Guo Pei amidst the staging of their first designer collection in Shanghai's annual Fashion Week.
