RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research originated from the exploration and research on the cultural heritage of China and Japan. Clogs is one of the important inventions in ancient China. However, in contemporary China, few people wear clogs. On the contrary, after being transported to Japan in the Tang Dynasty, clogs were passed on even till the modern centuries and renamed as Geta in Japan. Therefore, I have studied the development background and inheritance history of Geta culture under the different cultures of China and Japan, and deeply explored the main reasons for the disappearance of Geta in China and the inheritance of Japan. In fact, I the disappearance and inheritance reason is connected with the orientation of the country and the mainstream appeal. In recent years, China's fashion design style gradually approaches to the countries as Europe and the United States. While, the development of Japan for fashion is designed by the inherent cultural elements along with fashion at the same time. Although these are just studies on the culture of clogs, they could also represent the pursuit and intention of development, politics, economy, culture, and fashion of a country. Fashion, it is not just clothes, accessories, shoes, bags and other simple items, it also represents a deeper level of different cultures, backgrounds and means a lot.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge point of this design is about making the wedge heel. I should not make it as heavy as a wood block, but fashionable and lightful for wearing. The other part is about the fabric usage. I designed the pattern and digitally printed it on the fabric. Moreover, it also important for me to solve the problem of how to make the wood arch fit for the bottom of the shoe last arch.
