New Year is a time when everyone in the Sinospheric chopstick societies dress up in their traditional costumes and visit families and friends.

Come to Central City Library and learn the stories behind the exquisite clothing. There will be samples on display for you to appreciate and touch!
Hear two great speakers discuss the intricacies of Sinospheric culture.

Lai Lam was born and raised in Hong Kong and has always been fascinated by the common roots that all Chinese, Japanese and Koreans (CJK) share. Lai has researched CJK personal names extensively and works as Communications and Business Information Coordinator at the AUT library.

Leona Wang was born and raised on mainland China and developed an interest in both fashion design and patternmaking. She graduated from AUT with a Bachelor of Fashion Design degree, where her research focused on traditional Japanese and Chinese minority ethnic costumes.
