Synopsis: While many readers will associate Chinese textiles with low-end exports, some may already know that the new generation of Chinese young people, who have grown up with greater and greater exposure to luxury goods and the brands of the West and Japan, are beginning to make fashion. They are digesting an array of new influences and readying themselves to conquer the world. Ma Ke, who is considered the most important young fashion designer in China today, founded her brand, EXCEPTION de MIXMIND, nine years ago. Point One, the first book about her work and the first book in English on Chinese fashion, is divided into two volumes: The first part presents a wide range of Ma Ke's creative work; the second part beautifully illustrates a fashion show held in Beijing last winter.
