Abstract

The Miao people of Central China have a rich tradition of handmade costumes that have inspired baute couture designers at Dior and Chanel, but despite the work's beauty their culture is under threat. To help support the survival of their heritage the fashion department at the HKDI has developed a range of internationally acclaimed projects that are taking the Miao's creativity to the world stage.
