Book launch @ M on the Bund (Shanghai), 23  June 2019


What is at stake for the future of Chinese fashion?

M on the Bund and ESSCA School of Management are honored to invite Dr Wessie Ling and Prof. Simona Segre Reinach, editors of the book Fashion in Multiple China: Chinese Styles in the Transglobal Landscape, eds. Wessie Ling and Simona Segre Reinach (Bloomsbury/IB Tauris, 2018)

On the occasion of their visit to Shanghai for their book launch, we will have a chance to engage with the editors in a conversation about Chinese fashion, as it develops in Mainland China and abroad. The interdisciplinary approach of this book, which gathers 13 fashion experts, enables the reader to understand a multi-faceted phenomenon, with an increasing role, as China invests in its creative economy, and along the One Belt One Road.
