Director Statement

Loving fashion and exploring the unique charm of "every ordinary person". I met Adam, a Professor of Anthropology at University College London, and Dr Emma, who are doing wardrobe research. ‘Clothes are people’, and the wardrobe becomes the biography of everyone. Living in different environments in the East and the West, I feel the great changes of the times. Grandma and mother lived a completely different life from mine, and their clothing at each stage represented the portraits of Chinese women in the past. The clothes I liked from childhood also corresponded with The Times. The exploration of culture, society and people drove me to make this film.
