  1. 360Fashion Network has created a 250-sqm Mobile Fashion Zone for the GSMA Mobile Asia Expo, which will be held at the Shanghai New International Exhibition Center from June 20th – 22th, 2012. The zone showcases how fashion brands can harness the latest mobile technologies in their brand building, retail space, and advertising campaigns created together with the China International Clothing and Accessories Fair (CHIC). The zone is located in the Exhibition Center and is open to all attendees of the Mobile Asia Expo, including consumers. According to Anina Net, founder and CEO of 360Fashion Network, this zone allows visitors to experience the power of augmented reality, QR codes, and near field communication (NFC) as presented on two 8-meter walls of the zone. Visitors can also download the 360Fashion Network apps to any mobile phone. “We are excited to showcase examples of how mobile can connect other industries and enable people to live a connected life. In the Mobile Fashion Zone, 360Fashion Network demonstrates how NFC, augmented reality, QR codes and apps can solve some of the challenges in the fashion industry and enhance the experience for users,” says Michael O’Hara, chief marketing officer, GSMA. Dedicated to the celebration of the China International Clothing and Accessories Fair (CHIC). 20th anniversary, the Augmented Reality wall has been designed by 360Fashion Network with a historical timeline of the CHIC. Past photos and videos of the CHIC are well-hidden and viewable only through the 360AR apps available on iPhone (http://getap.ps/360AR) and Android (http://bit.ly/360FAR). As shown on the wall for this anniversary theme, exclusive footage, interviews, and fashion photos that have never been publicized since 1993 will make their debut public appearance. The second face of the wall was created to demonstrate QR Code technology, and 360Fashion Network has built a retail environment for the CHIC YOUNG BLOOD area using hangtags on products, posters, and display cases. Visitors can scan the QR codes on the tags, posters, and walls, and be immediately linked to weibo, website, eCommerce, and contact information for the brands of these products. The NFC is on the second wall is where 360Fashion Network is cooperating with ESMOD Beijing Fashion School, displaying a trend analysis collected about new technological textiles and fabrics. “Visitors can touch the textiles with NFC-enabled phones and instantly see the name of the designer. This shows how brands can empower their products by using the mobile device,” said Anina, founder and CEO of 360Fashion Network. The second face of the wall presents some great examples of fashion applications for iPhone along with the 360Fashion News app (http://getap.ps/360News). Anina is also launching her own mobile game for girls “ANINA DRESS UP”, downloadable to play on iPhone (http://getap.ps/ADUFree), along with 360Fashion Look-Book app pre-installed on all N9 handsets in China (http://bit.ly/360FN9). “We have been hosting CHIC for the last 20 years; with 360Fashion’s participation and support, we are able to show the world that we are in pace with the new technologies for fashion brands,” said Mr. Chen Dapeng, Executive Vice President of China National Garment Association. “The fashion industry worldwide is struggling to understand how to leverage mobile and social technologies into their traditional businesses. Working with CHIC was a great step forward for Fashion & Technology globally. Having the opportunity to showcase our work to the technology industry at Mobile Asia Expo is a thrill and we hope to inspire the audience to know what our company is doing,” said Anina. Research shows that there are 1 billion mobile subscribers in China, among which 180 million are smart phone owners, a market that is predicted to grow to 500 million by 2015[bM1] according to CCTV. However, Chinese fashion brands in general are not currently maximizing branded mobile apps for their branding and corporate communication, which is the norm for Western brands overseas. Anina will explore this issue at Mobile Asia Expo in a session on “How Mobile Will Revolutionize the Fashion Industry” in the Innovation Lab Two, located in Hall N2, on June 22nd at 12:30-13:00. This session is open to all registered attendees of Mobile Asia Expo.

    Chinese Design

    In this book Chinese Design, we are pleased to introduce a wide array of different architectural projects, and the various designers, architectural ateliers and developers that have made these works come to light. The distribution of the book has been done in three chapters according to the three main geographical areas – Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong – where most of these projects are located. A fourth chapter covers the architectural projects located in other parts of the Chinese mainland. Like the Great Wall, which with its 2.400 km is the only built structure on earth visible from outer space, China is so huge and profound, that to make an attempt to analyse its design is practically impossible. The basic principle, however, that seemed to influence space design in China was related to a number of different philosophies like Confucianism, Taoism or Fengshui. Although nowadays, in general, people do not really like being bound by ancient tradition, still most of them follow, or at least cannot ignore, that Fengshui laws of space direction or some other philosophies. China’s complex, harsh and hazardous history partly explains one of the reasons why many residential houses and buildings look often like solid fortresses, with its inner space clearly separated and differentiated from the outer part of the house. Inside the house compound, the patio serves not only as a source of visual delight, but it is used also for outdoor inner living throughout the various seasons of the year. Finally we would like to introduce a few distinctisyve examples of iconography in China, symbologie that plays a very important role within Chinese design. Colours like red, aside form being the colour of the Chinese national flag, have signified fortune and luck, since ancient times. Visually, sometimes it seems as if every single city of the country lies under the overriding spell of the Chinese character script. China’s extraordinary appetite for the new was certainly a powerful driving force for its rapid change. The end product is as somewhat general retrofuristic urban landscape spreading all over its cities. Buy the book Chinese Design at Amazon View the full article

  9. China is on the verge of a design revolution. A “third generation” of the People’s Republic of China that came of age during China’s “opening up” period of the 1980s now strives for fame, fortune, and self expression. This generation, workers in their thirties and forties, has more freedom to create–and to consume–than their parents or grandparents. In China’s Design Revolution, Lorraine Justice maps the evolution of Chinese design and innovation. Justice explains that just as this “third generation” (post-Revolution, post–Cultural Revolution) reaches for self-expression, China’s government is making massive investments in design and innovation, supporting design and creative activities (including design education programs, innovation parks, and privatized companies) at the local and national levels. The goal is to stimulate economic growth–and to establish China as a global creative power. Influenced by Mao and Confucius, communism and capitalism, patriotism and cosmopolitanism, China’s third generation will drive the culture of design and innovation in China–and maybe the rest of the world. Justice describes and documents examples of Chinese design and innovation that range from ancient ceramics to communist propaganda posters. She then explores current award-winning projects in media, fashion, graphic, interior, and product design; and examines the lifestyle and purchasing trends of the “fourth generation,” now in their teens and twenties. China’s Design Revolution offers an essential guide to the inextricably entwined stories of design, culture, and politics in China.

    Made Better In China

    “Forget the ‘Made in China’ stigma. Ambitious and confident Chinese brands are already catering to demanding consumers, both at home and increasingly abroad. Including yours.

Get ready for an even more globally hyper-competitive business environment.

  11. When we were planning this project, it occurred that the tsunami attacked Japan. The sensory impact brought about by the tragedy shocked me, and gave me some mixed feelings. Though the world we are living in is wonderful, there are still so many catastrophes and disasters. In the motion of nature and the universe we are just dust particles, and lots of dust particles make up the motes. What this renovation project brought with it is such kind of concern. As in this boundless universe each of us is indeed just a dust particle, as small as cannot be smaller. Please have a look at this project: it offers you not only some space, but also a garden. The Oriental Club moved the heavy loam wall, and opened a world of tranquility and lightness. The whole design originated from the traditional gardening techniques. None of the traditional gardening elements is unavailable: tortuous paths, gallery bridges, bamboo groves, lean rockery stones; but it is a show of modern times, the illumination of oriental philosophies. In the white delicate form and structure, dotted the fine motes design. It will be found accidentally, and give us the perception that the weak could overcome the strong hint about life. A courtyard of water, penetrating the sky, reflecting the four seasons. The reshaped white modern buildings present the deposits of oriental culture at everywhere. The wall of rammed earth contrast heavily with the paper-like white “thinness”. The motes on the pieces of white boards secretly imply the balance of power and the balance of culture: the thought about human, nature and the universe, and the relations between them. The scene of exploding and the decoration paintings blackened by the fires, all reveal the truth just as “dhyana” does, in a most ordinary way. People with thoughts, please think. The ideology of dhyana is like the water, it is boundless. The teahouse on the upstairs is cool and refreshing, reflecting the complexity of the traditional Chinese wood construction with needle-like compactness. The ends of the timber were blackened by hot iron, producing a illusory surface like dreams. Talking over the tea, meditating while appreciating rocks, enjoying the moon and clouds, it is worth seeing a hundred times. In tranquility and peace, let’s pray that disasters never come to us. A world of peace is not just an empty talk. Yeah! So much we hope that in the motes we can have possession of virtue and health; So much we hope that in the motes we can have possession of peace and hope; So much we hope that in the motes we can have possession of a hometown and a settling place; So much we hope that in the motes we can have possession of happy children and healthy parents.

  12. HOI JIT Tea House is a self-owned brand by HOI JIT who specializes in tea production and trade. China has a long history of tea culture which shines with Zen wisdom. The logo that DongDao designed for HOI JIT looks like a floating leaf on which are the lines of water reflection. The leaf and water marks reflect the beauty and core value of tea culture and Zen philosophy: bitterness, quietness, ordinariness and openness. Based on this concept, DongDao created an elegant and innovative packaging design for HOI JIT products so that they look cultural and modern. Designed by DongDao View the full article

  14. “There are a lot of companies here—Chinese companies in particular—that are capable of very good innovation, doing it, putting it into the market, and building a big local supply or consumer base that will extend into the rest of the world.

  22. This richly illustrated book introduces the European-influenced modernist graphics of the “Shanghai Style,” dominated by Art Deco, and the “Progressive Movement,” influenced by Russian Constructivism, de Stijl and the Bauhaus. It covers an astonishing collection of graphics, uncovered from long- forgotten sources, mostly in China itself. From posters and advertisements to book covers and magazines, this book presents a dazzling panoply of modern graphic design in China. Beginning with the basic traditions of Chinese graphics, the authors show how the writer and artist Lu Xun became the center of cultural revival in the new China. We see Art Deco coming to China in the Shanghai Style, and the birth of a dynamic national design style, born of Russian Constructivism and China’s own drive for new technology. The Socialist Realist art of Mao in turn adopted folk art traditions to fuel the Revolutionary machine, while the continuing search for a new identity can be seen in the graphic images of protest from the summer of 1989. 150 color and 135 black-and-white photographs and illustrations About the authors: Scott Minick has lectured extensively in design history. He maintains his own consulting firm in Hong Kong, Minick Jiao Design. Jiao Ping taught at the Shanghai University College of Fine Arts and now lives in Hong Kong.

    Idas Stool

    Mortise and tenon is one of the traditional Chinese craft, which was generally used in furniture and architecture. The idea of the stool is to combine hand-craft with modern technology and tries to make mass production possible. The sculptural streamlined base and legs linked through the ‘bridge’ parts create the structural balance. By different range of colors, the stool gives a modern look and an image in contemporary Chinese design. Designed by Studio KDSZ View the full article

  25. Redress launches The EcoChic Design Award China 2012, a sustainable fashion design competition challenging emerging fashion designers to create mainstream fashion with minimal textile waste. The competition provides designers with the sustainable design tools to take them through six months of design and theory that culminates at a grand final runway show at Shanghai Fashion Week in October. Twelve grand finalists will then compete for the chance to design a sustainable collection for retailer Esprit, visit John Hardy’s sustainable Bali-based production facilities and visit Hong Kong Fashion Week. “Everyone is a fashion consumer yet few people consider the underlying environmental impacts embedded into our clothing, including textile waste, water pollution, chemical and energy use. Through The EcoChic Design Award, we are ultimately addressing these negative environmental outcomes by going to the source of the fashion industry to educate emerging fashion designers,” said Christina Dean, founder of Redress. The award is supported by a number of high profile personalities from the fashion industry, including award ambassador Zhu Zhu “The fashion industry is loved for its creativity and expression but it is one of the world’s most polluting industries. With China being the garment manufacturing hub of the world, the negative impacts arising from the fashion industry are close to home. Few people realize that designers influence an estimated 80 percent of the environmental impact of a product. It is crucial to encourage and educate emerging fashion designers about their important role in making tomorrow’s fashion industry more sustainable’ said model and actress Zhu Zhu (æœ±ç ) More broadly, the competition raises industry and consumer awareness about the negative environmental impacts caused by waste from the fashion industry. It is estimated that 10 million tonnes of textiles are wasted annually in Europe and America alone1 and that 15 percent of textiles are wasted in the manufacturing process2. With China being the largest exporter of apparel and textiles in the world, responsible for making approximately 40 percent of the world’s textiles3 and 30 percent of apparel exports4; figures for China’s textile waste appear very high. Calling local designers to break the boundaries of conventional fashion The EcoChic Design Award puts the spotlight onto China’s emerging sustainable fashion design talent, creating a platform to expand Asia’s sustainable fashion landscape. The competition is open to fashion design students and designers with up to five years industry experience residing in China.
