Juanjuan Wu is Assistant Professor in the Department of Design, Housing, & Apparel at the University of Minnesota. She has written extensively on Chinese fashion and dress. She is former editor and journalist of Dadushi (Metropolis), a fashion magazine in Shanghai.
Useful to scholars, professors and students and would be a wonderful addition to university libraries.

It provides valuable historical information in almost all the facets of the fashion industry in China in the post-Mao era. Christine Tsui, Fashion Practice
