Due to China’s rapid urban growth and an increase in the wealth of its population, the demand for both affordable and high-end clothing is rising like never before.
Whether you’re planning a visit to China or simply enjoy fashion in general, these are some of the top Chinese Fashion Brands you should definitely be aware of.

Quick Guide to Chinese Fashion Brands
Chinese Fashion is like the country itself; modern, future-orientated, and unique by preserving its culture and traditions.
Chinese fashion brands do not only take their national audience by storm but are heading towards the pinnacles of success internationally as well. Brands, including Shein or Bosideng, are proof of that.
What I like most about Chinese fashion brands like INXX, Urban Revivo, and Trendiano is that despite their highly modern clothing lines, you still get Asian vibes from them.
Now without further redo, let’s dive into them.
How could this list not start with Shein?
Shein came into being in 2008 with Chris Xu setting its foundation.
After 12 years in business, the online fashion retailer became the most talked about brand on TikTok and YouTube in 2020.
