There is a Growing Curiosity throughout the world about the true potential of the Chinese
market and, more particularly, about the Desires of the Chinese Female Consumer...
The Chinese Consumer Market:
What do we know about its structure and about Chinese
women’s preferences in intimate apparel?
We can be sure about Two Main Elements concerning the Chinese market:
- The Chinese Female Consumer is Young: Of a potential market of approximately
525 million women over age 15, 21% are between 15 and 24 years of age, and 41% are
in the 25 to 44 age range.
- Chinese Women are Ready to Spend: Following on an increase in retail sales of more
than 16% in 2009 and sustained growth in sales of apparel in early 2010, continued
growth, particularly amongst urban women looking for prestige items, can be expected
this year. But did you know...
...that more than 850000 Chinese consumers have an income of over 10 million yuan
...that there are around 140 million Chinese consumers in the top tier of
spending, each of them willing to part with around 300 € per person per year for apparel
that shows off their upwardly-mobile lifestyle
...that the Chinese lingerie market represented around 3 billion € in revenue in 2010,
and that this is growing at around 10% each year
KEY TRENDS TO LOOK FOR IN THIS KEY MARKET...
• The economic action is shifting toward “secondary” cities in the country’s interior, where
incomes are rising at an amazing pace.
• One third of Chinese are now online (approximately 400 million now connected),
which makes for an impressive potential market for e-commerce, soon to
represent 5% of retail sales. Online commerce is being heartily encouraged by the
• In terms of lingerie, Chinese women want products in the right size (primarily
A and B cups in bras), designed to enhance and slim their silhouette (light control
items are popular), with luxurious touches and embellishments. In addition, since
apartments are not heated, homewear and “warmwear” are key products for
• What are the top colors in China for lingerie? White, pastels and red!
• Chinese women, depending on their income level, tend to buy lingerie in markets,
specialty shops or multi-product stores. For the upscale Chinese consumer, who
has often shopped in department stores or malls, the trend is moving toward
boutique shopping, which provides a more luxurious experience.
• Young, affluent China wants to live the Luxury Life, and this is reflected in the growing
appetite for cutting-edge Swim Fashions to wear on holidays in the sun, or for elegant
Loungewear to enjoy at home.

- spend a “Weekend in the city”...
The Trend Forum is designed and co-organized by world-leading lingerie trend agency
Concepts Paris. Metropolises change from business-orientated agglomerations into
humane multicultural structures, where social networks are not just virtual; they flourish in
our city. With the theme of “Weekend in the City”, the Trend Forum showcases the latest
lingerie trends designs, creativity and novelty through the lens of three trend directions...
- TEATIME... Forget the old-fashioned, cutesy tearoom. Tea is revived through the
discovery of the ritual of slowing down and savoring refined textures and aromas.
- PICNIC...Nature comes to cities in stylish patches and invites socializing in style. On a
boat, on the beach, in a park, on a roof top - accessorized from a gourmet picnic hamper
to a deluxe leisure outfit.
- COCKTAIL...Openings of exhibits in galleries and museums are the top trendy affairs.
Art cognoscenti are joined by a growing crowd hungry to experience life and the creative
wonders of our times.

To Refresh Senses and Open Your Mind, a Vision of Femininity through Art...
THE ART GALLERY : INTIMATE CONFESSIONS 2
For the second time, Shanghai Mode Lingerie will host the exclusive drawings of Dutch
artist Margot Van Huijkelom through Intimate Confessions 2, an Art Exhibit dedicated to
Women and a unique outlook on their Femininity. Margot describes her Art thus...
“The woman in my work is playing with the codes of sexuality and hyper-femininity,
like high heels, lingerie and make-up. The female body has always been a source of
questions and misunderstandings. It’s about a modern suffragette in all states of mind:
she’s tough and tender, elegant and shocking, she hides and shows, she dynamizes the
codes of femininity. Being sexy and respected is a new form of feminism.”
