East meets West in this award–winning book of Chinese style by superstar fashion designer Vivienne Tam–and now it's in a cute, smaller trim size trade paperback!
Celebrated fashion designer Vivienne Tam shares the rare individuality of her own cross–cultural style, combining traditional eastern elements with a modern Western edge. The seductive East–meets–West style is brought alive as Tam takes us on a personal journey featuring the people, places, and things that inspire her. From the sexy cheongsam (the ultimate feminine dress) to the Mao jacket (gives power dressing a whole new meaning), from the elaborate Chinese opera houses to Zen gardens, she teaches such us how to savour the world in a bowl of noodles and the essence of Chinese design in her favourite Ming chair. China Chic is style that is hot, hip, and pervasive to today's–and tomorrow's–pop culture.
