Huge Mao suit marks 100 years of a revolution

The suit weighs 40 kg and is 4.3 metres in length, making it about 36 times the size of one worn by Sun Yat-sen.



Beijing: Chinese designers have finished a two-storey high Mao suit to commemorate the 100th anniversary of a revolution.

The suit weighs 40 kg and is 4.3 metres in length, making it about 36 times the size of one worn by Sun Yat-sen, a leader of the Xinhai Revolution of 1911, reported Xinhua.

In 1911, protests and armed uprisings took place across China against the monarchy of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). These events led to the toppling of the country`s last emperor and the founding of the republic of China on January 01, 1912.

It took 10 teachers and students at the Zhejiang Textile & Fashion College four months to finish the massive garment.

The giant apparel measures 2.70 metres across the shoulders and features sleeves 3.54 metres long.
