Item Description

IconCaretDown

By the 1960's, China had become a nation in uniform. Men had already been wearing the Zhongshan Suit 中山装 for years and it was later altered for women by removing the breast pockets. Colorful clothing like the qipao 旗袍 and cheongsam 长裙 were abandoned for clothing that favored functionality. This look is most visibly embodied in the “Iron Girls,” the hard-working and muscular women in workers' communes, that came to prevalence in the 60's and 70's. From 1966-1977 the cadre outfit had essentially become high fashion after it was adopted by the Red Guard 红卫兵 and Educated Youth 知青 groups. The uniform went hand in hand with socialist idealism, representing both equality and anti-individualism. The legacy of this uniform can even be seen in modern china, as the clothing of preference for many people belonging to older generations.
Of course not every uniform only espouses ideological beliefs, some are quite utilitarian. Take the “turnout” gear for example. This uniform universally signifies that its wearer is a firefighter, which in many ways actually tells us about what kind of person is beneath the cloth. Whatever you choose to wear, keep in mind what this may say to the rest of the world.
