- In China, there is a uniform for everyone -- the hairdresser, the high school student, the voluntary worker, the Secretary General of the Party or the waitress in a restaurant. And speaking of the Party, did you know that Mao never wore a jacket with a Mao-style collar? The elders are still attached to the uniform dress of Mao's days and the young are not adverse to dressing up as the former leader. But Western style is also in fashion, especially the white wedding dress. Many older couples repeat their wedding vows after forty years just for the pleasure to have their wedding photos taken in a white, bourgeois dress. Dress in China today reflects the very image of its society, ranging from ideological purity to economic ultra liberalis.
