From 1978 when China started its reform and opening-up policy, a door to the outside world has been opened. Along with the imported commodities, fashion ideas inevitably slipped into China and since then the country, which was somewhat lack of fashion diversity, started its journey to pursue fashions. Over the past four decades, the thirst for beauty has driven Chinese people to pursue every possible fashionable element. The change first came with dress when colorful and diversified clothing prevailed as against the former dominant blue and grey. For a time, men and women raced to hairdressers' just for trendy hairdos. Eating McDonald's or western cuisine even once was regarded as a fashionable thing. However, the most conspicuous change is that Chinese people have become more inclusive and they tend to accept new fashions, styles and concepts. China nowadays is dazzling the world not only on the fashion stage but in many other fields. Changes in fashions, as a profile of society, has well interpreted the benefits to people brought by China's reform and opening-up policy. (Xinhua/Huang Zhe)
