Hanfu: Traditional Chinese Clothing for the 21st Century?
Talk by Juni L. Yeung (for 1-hour presentation use)

This talk gives an overview to the reasons, rationale and history of the various attempts at restoring Han Chinese clothing into Chinese heritage since 1644, and the struggles and achievements of the contemporary movement in its first decade since 2003. This presentation also outlines the redefined system of objects for describing Han clothing, and discusses the market potential of it as a potential fashion trend in the coming future.
