While I did technically wear a dress today for #dressember, my #chinesedance costume from our performance today was just too cute not to share.
So I figure I'll pair this photo with some facts about the Chinese garment industry:
According to statistics from 2012, China is the largest percentage, 38%, of the world's market for garments. In 2013 the garment industry accounted for 47% of China's GDP. "Recent years [however] have seen some companies shift from China to other neighboring countries, e.g. Cambodia, Myanmar, etc. This is most likely due to cheaper labor and regulation costs in these countries . . .

China's textile production accounts for over half of the world's production and they are the largest producer of cotton shirts worldwide (source: http://www.cochawaii.org/
