Starting long ago, China captivated the world with delicately made porcelain wares. It’s no mistake that porcelain is also called china or fine china, since, for many foreign traders, porcelain was a defining feature of the country.

Well made porcelain is still highly coveted. Fashion designers integrate patterns and colors from porcelain in their collections. Though there are many types of porcelain, these designers have taken to the blue-and-white variety. Below we give you the fashions, and the porcelain or fine china wares which inspired them.
